Declawing is unnatural, and it's amputation. Imagine having your finger tips cut off at the first joint. That's what declawing is for cats, and it needs to stop. Cats are natural predictors and if they don't have nails, they'll use their teeth instead, which hurt alot more. If you can't handle your furniture being a little ruined, don't get a cat. If you don't like scratching, don't get a cat. If you can't accept nature for all it is already, don't get a pet. Ban declawing in Ontario.
