PLEASE DO NOT DECLAW YOUR CAT. This kitty was declawed 10 years ago. Had not been to a vet in many years. Kitty was brought in for a “check up” by its new owner. Kitty would not let me touch her feet and several had swelling, and were abscessed. Did you hear me say she was declawed 10 YEARS AGO. This kitty has been in so much pain. The surgery to remove the fragments took over 2 hours. Still thinking about declawing your cat? I hope not.
