Quoting nov.08mama:" getting a cat declawed should be considered mutilation. find a home for the cat where it can keep its toes!"
Depends on the age of the cat.
Both my cats were declawed as kittens, the same time they were spayed, and I highly doubt they felt any pain......I know this b/c they were given fentanyl patches (very, very strong pain killer) and spent 4 days in the "hospital" being medicated. So it's not as inhumane as some people say and honestly its worth it to avoid any scratches to my children or my furniture, lol.
