Up until a year or so ago I had no qualms about declawing...until I learned what is really involved. Its not just removing the nail! Now that we have Cinnamon we have a decision to make. He is awfully cute, but he is causing us pain. I could care less about our furniture, but he attacks our feet during the night. Some nights I have succeeded by tiring him out with play time and he doesn't bother us until bout 5 am, lol. I trimmed his nails thinking that would lessen the pain. Nope.
I really don't want to declaw him. I'm going to order these little nail covers to see if that helps. That should be fun to get on him, lol! Anyone try them? I can't remember what they are called. Soft Paws maybe? I will have to Google it.
Please let me know how you feel and if you have any ideas. Oh, keeping him out of the bedroom at night isn't an option as his litter box is in the master bath and we don't have another place for it.
