To anyone who knew spiffn2xang: This is her new account. =oD

Here's a random fact:

Declawing is not like a manicure. It is serious surgery. Your cat's claw is not a toenail. It is actually closely adhered to the bone. So closely adhered that to remove the claw, the last bone of your the cat's claw has to be removed. Declawing is actually an amputation of the last joint of your cat's "toes". When you envision that, it becomes clear why declawing is not a humane act. It is a painful surgery, with a painful recovery period. And remember that during the time of recuperation from the surgery your cat would still have to use its feet to walk, jump, and scratch in its litter box regardless of the pain it is experiencing.

Love your pets! =oD

I've never heard of the SoftPaws product before. That's amazing! What the hell are people declawing their cats for?! Bloody Americans!

I know some people that had their cats declawed because they kept ruining their furniture, and refuses to use the scratching post for some reason. Poor kitties. =o(
