In the vast majority of cases it is not necessary to declaw a cat, in fact it does more harm than good. There are health and psychological risks. It is a fact that a cat who has been declawed will change for the worst.Declawing takes away the cat\'s ability to defend itself in the outside world - that\'s if it gets that far as the risks are many. If you are not convinced then go to http://www.declawing.com/htmls/declawing.htm after viweing that site please come back and sign this petition. In SOME countries it is illegal,we need to make it illegal in EVERY country.
