THIS IS IMPORTANT
This message is veterinarian-approved!!!
In case it isn’t clear, that is literally the last bone of a cat’s toes attached to those claws. If you thought only the claw was being removed during declaw surgery, you are unfortunately mistaken. It’s an amputation.
Get claw caps instead! They stay on pretty well and your cat can walk around normally. You can take them off whenever you want. This is great for house cats. They don’t need their claws for defense but they need them to walk the way we need toes. This keeps them from scratching you or furniture and keeps them happy and healthy. It’s a win for everyone. Plus your cat will look like it got a kitty manicure.
Reblogging again for the last comment, for anyone who wants to argue about saving their precious furniture. Boom! Problem solved.
I regularly trim my cat’s claws because I love him
They’re super cheap too!
Not really a cat person, but this is still important.
PLS DONT REMOVE UR CATS TOE BONES

The second cat my family ever owned was declawed, and she suffered GREATLY from arthritis in her last few years. She could barely get into her own litterbox and she often went on the carpet because of this. She died in my mom’s arms, obviously in pain.
DO. NOT. DECLAW. YOUR. CATS.
DON’T FUCKING DECLAW YOUR CATS!
THAT SHIT SHOULD BE CHARGED AS ANIMAL ABUSE
Reblogging here instead of just commenting:
Please dont use claw caps on cats. Claw caps are meant for claws that are out 24/7; like a dogs claws. Cats are not like dogs…. again.
Cat claws retract. And like some of the comments on this very post say, on cats they have to be superglued on, because cats will rip them off. And trying to remove them after can literally just rip their nail off anyways. Using claw caps on retractable clawed animals can cause serious damage, discomfort, and infection, which can then lead to…. THE AMPUTATION YOU WERE TRYING TO AVOID!!!
People need to do some research before blurting out an unresearched ‘solution’ that causes just as much damage. So many people have reblogged the claw cap version and listen to it without question and that’s REALLY. REALLY. BAD.
Here’s a real solution; either clip their nails manually (google how it’s easy) or just DONT. GET. A. CAT.
Please reblog this and spread it around, people you cannot safely use claw caps on an animal with retractable claws.
