Check out this video of a cat getting his nail’s trimmed. I was amazed by how the cat was, so I asked her if she trained her and she said she did. This is how she did it.
25% of cats in the U.S. are declawed, and a lot of people continue to declaw their cats simply because they are unaware of what the surgery entails – they assume that it is just the removal of the cat’s claws. However, the procedure actually involves removing part of the cat’s bone as well, since the entire last joint has to be cut off, not just the claw.
MeLinda Hughes of Merlin’s Hope Ragdoll Rescue discusses her experiences with the problems that declawing cats causes and offers declawing cats alternatives.
