Why You Shouldn’t Declaw Your Cat

Not long ago, I visited family for dinner. Pretty much as soon as I was in their home, I beelined for their cat — Hope was a new addition to the household and I hadn’t yet met her.

Scratching also just makes your cats happy — it gives them an awesome stretch and works their muscles. It’s kitty calisthenics!
