Is Pet Declawing a Good Idea?

Pet declawing is a personal decision that involves the welfare of you and your pet. It’s a relatively controversial topic as it pertains to altering a cat’s paws, but it’s actually a very safe procedure like spaying or neutering. A common argument against the procedure is that it affects a cat’s ability to defend itself, but as long as you plan on keeping your cat indoors, there’s no need to worry about your furry friend’s safety. The healing process takes as little as a week, and is typically shorter for kittens than for older cats. While kitten declawing is generally preferable to declawing an older cat, it can be harder to break habits of older cats, making declawing the best option if getting rid of the cat is the other option.
