Did you know some countries have outlawed declawing completely, and states including New York have considered legislation making it illegal. The American Veterinary Medical Association now only suggests doing it for medical reasons, or if no other remedy prevents the cats from using its claws destructively. It is natural for cats to want to scratch because it helps them mark their territory, work their toe muscles and stimulate their brain.
Here are some declawing alternatives if you choose not to declaw your cat.
· Provide scratching posts, which could include cardboard boxes, lumber, or carpet remnants attached to stationary objects. The objects should be tall enough to allow the cat to fully stretch while scratching.
· Properly take care of your cat’s claws by trimming them every week or two. This will reduce damage to household items.
· Temporary synthetic nail caps can be used as an alternative to declawing. They can reduce injury and damage to property. Nail caps can be reapplied every four to six weeks.
