Haven on Earth Animal League does NOT endorse the practice of declawing cats and kittens. We view this procedure as extremely painful and unnecessary, and are striving to educate the public regarding this practice.
We recommend other alternatives to declawing, such as: nail trimming, scratching posts, nail caps and training. You can lure your kitty to the scratching post with cat nip, toys and positive reenforcement.
There are several great articles regarding declawing that we have linked to under our Blogroll below. Please take a few minutes to read them and understand what it involves so you can make an educated decision.
