But why on earth would it ever be necessary?! I think it's just out of laziness that people feel the need to completely deform a cat, since you can obviously keep them non-sharp and safe if you just trim them. Which isn't impossible to do at all, regardless of how much a cat may dislike it. God, me and a friend managed to trim the claws of two cats who were really wild cats that we'd rescued and that we couldn't even touch or barely look at. Sometimes it's a struggle but I think you owe it to a cat not to take the easy way out and simply force them to have unnecessary surgeries...
- I am totally fine with it, the only issue there would be is that if you got a cat declawed when they have an outside life. That's where I believe it's wrong. When my cats got declawed, I got informed on it, didn't really like the sound of it but after the surgery, they were still themselves and after a few weeks they were back to normal. That's when I was okay with it.
And also, what Dru said.
