Many new cat parents feel that having their cat declawed is doing their cat, and their furniture a service. After all, a cat that is declawed cannot scratch your furniture, shred your toilet paper, fray your rug, or scratch your kids, right? These points may be true, but there is a dark world lurking behind declawing your cat that many people overlook.
You're probably wondering what in the world could be the downside? Well, it is simple. Having your cat declawed could be a death sentence for your furry little companion. Cats have a natural instinct to go outside, whether you like it or not. Lets face it, you don't always guard the door with your life, especially when carrying in groceries.
My cat Misty, in the above picture, is not declawed. However, one simple incident where she slipped out the front door and now, Misty is a three legged cat that is worth a whopping $3,500.
