2. The Procedure
Many people think that getting a cat declawed is just like a human getting their fingernails trimmed. Sadly, this is not the case. Declawing your cat is the human equivalent of cutting off each finger down to the last knuckle. You and I wouldn’t be happy about having that done and your cat isn’t either. It entirely changes how a cat functions. The traditional procedure is done in one of two ways. The first and most common way is by amputating the claw with a scalpel or guillotine clipper. They close up the wounds by either stitching it or using glue. The cat’s feet are then wrapped up for days. The second method is by using a laser to heat up and vaporize the tissue around the claw. While this procedure may sound better, your cat will still suffer all of the drawbacks of having its claws removed.
