Cooldudebro, how is declawing fine? Is evil, its brute, and inhumane, you don't just take the claws, you take their first line of defense, when you declaw, you take off not only the claws, but the knuckled of the cat as well. Http://pawproject.Org/

@bubbatheclown, if your children don't mess with the cat, the cat won't hurt them.
Cooldudebro says2014-04-02T11:34:37.6111226-05:00
Yeah, and you save your furniture.
Cooldudebro says2014-04-02T11:35:30.7552277-05:00
I like cats. They're cute. But with claws, they destroy furniture and can scratch you and other people
Cat_Lover says2014-04-02T11:35:59.4594117-05:00
To if you train the damn cat instead of abusing the cat and taking their knuckles off, dont be lazy, train the cat,mite not hard, declawing is for the lazy people of planet earth.
Cat_Lover says2014-04-02T11:36:55.7289724-05:00
It's not hard*
Cooldudebro says2014-04-02T11:37:42.0815478-05:00
Okay, now this is kinda getting bull. When you first get the cat, it isn;t trained and can mess up your furniture. This can cost thousands to replace. If you declaw them, then you save thousands of dollars. Which one is more important?
Cat_Lover says2014-04-02T11:38:12.8135478-05:00
Watch my cat from hell, it explains a lot of things, also, go to youtube and look up jackson galaxy, he explains why it's evil to declaw.
Cooldudebro says2014-04-02T11:39:24.9635478-05:00
Dude, why is it so inhumane if you get your cat declawed? Who really cares.
Cat_Lover says2014-04-02T11:39:26.0555478-05:00
Keeping a cats claws is more important than a couple of thousands of dollars
bubbatheclown says2014-04-02T11:39:28.4423478-05:00
A housecat could easily kill a Great Dane (but they don't because they're usually merciful). Keep your dogs away from them!!!!
Cooldudebro says2014-04-02T11:39:46.6475478-05:00
Oh and what u said before is an awesome that's what she said moment.
Cooldudebro says2014-04-02T11:40:15.3047478-05:00
It's not hard. Lol
Cooldudebro says2014-04-02T11:41:40.7927478-05:00
Now think about what you just wrote. A cat's claws VS. Thousands of dollars. Which is more important?
Cat_Lover says2014-04-02T11:42:03.3659478-05:00
Cats claws
Actionsspeak says2014-04-02T11:43:15.9502097-05:00
Repost: Cruel and unusual also oddly aimed at cats, a dog's teeth are much more deadly and their isn't even a debate about removing them.
Cooldudebro says2014-04-02T11:43:22.3618508-05:00
You obviously have no sense of the value of money. Many people would do anything for thousands of dollars.
Cat_Lover says2014-04-02T11:44:43.6403478-05:00
Those people would be idiots, doing anything for thousands? There's a house by my house that used to be a civil war hospital, I wouldn't sleep there for a night for a million dollars.
bubbatheclown says2014-04-02T11:47:15.0997427-05:00
Why not? That sounds like an awesome place to visit.
Cat_Lover says2014-04-02T11:48:03.2424459-05:00
It's haunted by the spirits of union soldiers.
bubbatheclown says2014-04-02T11:49:24.3465712-05:00
It's just an old building. Perhaps there're some mice and spiders and roaches creeping around, but it'd definitely be worth a million dollars.
Cat_Lover says2014-04-02T11:50:37.1522379-05:00
If you saw it you'd think otherwise
Cooldudebro says2014-04-02T12:01:53.3073722-05:00
What did I tell you? No sense of the value of money.

What is your opinion on gay cats?
bubbatheclown says2014-04-02T12:07:01.5459017-05:00
No such thing as a gay cat. Cats are awesome.
briantheliberal says2014-04-02T12:11:41.0723399-05:00
I was asking Cat Lover and yes, there are cats with homosexual attractions in the world.
Cooldudebro says2014-04-02T12:11:50.4745940-05:00
@brainliberal *facepalm*

This is a topic I wrestle with constantly. My fiancé has 4 cats and I think about it taking away their only line of defense and I feel like that is wrong, but my understanding is it's a painless procedure. I'm torn on this issue. I know I'm tired of the bastards scratching up my carpet, though.
Cat_Lover says2014-04-02T12:19:55.2679078-05:00
It isn't painless. Please don't get them declawed.
Cat_Lover says2014-04-02T12:21:37.9945663-05:00
It's not just the claws, its their knuckles as well, just try to train them not to rip things. It's really not that hard.
bubbatheclown says2014-04-02T13:31:09.1844381-05:00
But seriously, my housecat is declawed and she's just fine.
Ragnar says2014-04-02T15:05:30.0727238-05:00
It's not like removing finger nails on humans, it's like taking the fingertips off at that joint.
bettabreeder says2014-04-02T15:14:53.1680016-05:00
Cut of your finger and think how that will feel!
Venusara says2014-04-02T16:29:06.5146817-05:00
Declawing cats is NOT okay, it's illegal in many, many countries as it's considered a severe form of animal abuse. It IS most similar to cutting off your own fingers at the last knuckle. If you will only accept a cat that's been mutilated then you probably shouldn't own a cat at all. SMH
jery1569 says2014-04-03T16:11:34.8887551-05:00
You shouldn't declaw outdoor cats. Declawing indoor cats saves the furniture.
IamPlato says2014-04-03T17:12:28.2449739-05:00
I have had cats my whole life and never had ONE declawed or had my furniture "ruined" WHY, IT IS THE CAT'S PERSON THAT IS THE PROBLEM , NOT THE CAT, if you don't know how to care for a cat please five it to a loving cat person who does. Don't mutilate it for your convenience. Idiots.
GeeWillikers says2014-04-16T22:18:05.7951071-05:00
I have had a cat before and i first got her as a kitten. She was perfectly fine, but she doesn't like to be around most people. My parents got her declawed because she kept scratching me. It's actually mostly everyone else's fault because like most cats, she hates loud noises and surprises; once my brother scared her and she took of running, leaving scratches on me; vacuum turns on, she runs off. She was even more terrified after she got declawed. While i was gone one day, my cat did something bad and my dad hit her. I come back to find that my cat has one red eye(assuming this is one of the reasons why cat was extremely jumpy). Another thing is: my cat still had teeth and was ready to bite! So she bit me, but not as much as she scratched. My dad was actually considering having her back claws removed(we only did the front ones)! And with personal experience, declawing is cruel, and useless at the same time.

If cat owner rips their cat's claws out the owner's fingernails should be ripped out too.
