Need a cat declawed for about $100 in Georgia on 400 north Highway
Amount: $100.00
Posted by: Carolyn Smith in Alpharetta, GA.Posted: March 6th, 2014 02:03PM
Breed: MoggieType of Procedure: Declaw
Georgie attacks his owners legs and she is elderly with diabetes. Quotes for local vets for declawing are too high. Does anyone know of an inexpensive vet who would be willing to declaw for around $100-$150? Or Georgie will be back in the humane Society home soon! Shame because she loves his company.

Breed: allType of Procedure: Declawed
I have owned cats my whole life and I have always gotten the front paws declawed. Every cat I had was loving, very calm and very good natured, no problems with any of them. Do not listen to the people on here that tell you it is cruel and inhuman. People made that crap up because they think animal are more important than humans. Declawing is nothing like having your fingers removed, cat’s do not use their nails to eat, pick up or carry things LOL and they don’t have fingers, they use them for clawing up stuff and for protection, but if there is no harm for the cat then they only need them for clawing. The people on here are stupid and know nothing about anything, I have never heard such crap in my life from a bunch of tree huggers. These are the same people that will eat meat where fur and leather coats. People are getting out of hand. I love animals and I have always had pets and I spoil them rotten. So think of yourself and your family and make the decision based on your life.

Breed: dlh tabby mixed with maine coonType of Procedure: declawing on front
I got both my boys as kittens from same litter. They would literally tear my house up. They climbed curtains, tore up carpet, comforters, couch and love seat even with sticky pads on them. I had plenty of stuff for them to use their claws on but it never got used. They would even do the sneak attacks in the middle of the night and tear up ur legs. I clipped their nails almost daily and even used the glue on nail protector things in which they chewed off. At the time I was living in VA (home of peta) and declawing to them was a no no. The cheapest vet I could find in VA wanted $300/cat. I found a vet in NC right over the state line that did the front paws only for $75/cat and that included anesthesia, pain meds and an over night stay. She had to use both glue and dissolvable stitches bc their feet were so big. Neither of them had any probs with the surgery.

Delawing - second cat
Amount: $250.00
Posted by: L. E. in Waukesha, WI.Posted: August 26th, 2013 07:08PM
I have a five year old cat and a one year old. The oldest I had declawed when she was scratching up my carpets, that I will say was for my benefit. This little one is far worse, he attacks everything and has claws that are more like talons, my three year old has scars on him from just walking past and getting leaped on. My oldest cat had zero problems with her surgery, or recovery and her temperament is excellent. When people tell me its inhumane I just say that its the claws or the cat. I for one would rather he lose his claws then get put down in some shelter or get passed from family to family. Maybe that's just me but its worth the $250 to give him a happy home.

Declawing...the good and bad.
Amount: $0.00
Posted by: AMA in Upstate, SC.Posted: July 26th, 2013 10:07AM
Breed: Type of Procedure: Declawing
First off, I feel terrible about the whole declawing ordeal. Yes, it's awful. Yes, I'm sure it's painful, and hard to get used to at first. Our two cats died within the past year (one of old age, one during the recovery of dental surgery). Heartbroken, we adopted two new cats. One declawed, the other not. The one that isn't, is absolutely infuriating. He will claw on furniture instead of scratching posts. He stares blankly at you when you scold him and continues doing it until you throw a pillow at him or physically pick him up and move him. He has scratched up carpet and rugs, the wooden stair banister and even the plates surrounding electrical outlets. But the last straw is when he began scratching our new wooden curio cabinet, my son's wooden bed frame, the leather recliner, and the screened door (which he also CLIMBS). I'm sorry, but he WILL be declawed. I would never do the back claws, but the front ones one HAVE to go.

Declawing
Amount: $300.00
Posted by: Christy M. in Bowling Green, KY.Posted: July 8th, 2013 06:07AM
Breed: DomesticType of Procedure: Declawing front/back
I have always had my cats declawed both the front and the back, they have been the most loving babies I've ever seen. I am all for declawing, I believe the attitude change that I keep seeing people talk about is due to another problem...nurturing? I will soon be getting my new kitten declawed both front and back. I have had no problems medically related to declawing and no vet has told me its not good for the cat just it's a danger if they get out (which they never do...again...parenting!)

Lyzzi's cat
Amount: $0.00
Posted by: a user in western, WA.Posted: June 30th, 2013 11:06AM
Lyzzi- some background would help. Was the cat feral? Did you get it as a kitten? Do you let it outside? Does it bite?

If you're worried about the cat hurting your newborn, I think you need to find a new home for the cat. Maybe it could be a barn cat (but don't just drop it off somewhere).

I have read that some cats that scratch will start biting if they're declawed.

I have a cat that used to scratch and bite. I was keeping him indoors. Later I learned that he use to spend a lot of time outside. When I started letting him out he stopped biting and scratching, with a few rare exceptions.

Injuries by cats can be serious. If this cat is hurting other animals, humans, and possibly your baby, he needs to go. Even if you have to put him down, it will be quick and painless. Some vets will even come to your home. There are thousands of cats that don't bite or scratch, that get put down because no one takes them home. You could save a nice kitty that won't hurt anyone.

My cat seems just fine
Amount: $150.00
Posted by: frosted flakes in York, PA.Posted: June 1st, 2013 02:06PM
Breed: SiameseType of Procedure:
I had my cat de-clawed over ten years ago. Solomon is a happy, well adjusted cat that has been able to stay a part of my family due to the fact that he causes NO property damage. For those who think that de-clawing is cruel, it's even more cruel to subject a cat to years of going from one owner to another because it climbs curtains, destroys furniture, or, worse yet, hurts humans or other pets. If Solomon develops arthritis in his later years, I will do what I can to relieve his pain, which is what any GOOD pet owner would do. De-clawing is a surgical procedure...not a barbaric act. Geez people, get a grip!

Declaw or Get Rid of Her
Amount: $0.00
Posted by: Lyzzi in Florence, IN.Posted: May 26th, 2013 08:05PM
Breed: BlackType of Procedure:
I have two choices with my cat. Either I get her declawed or get rid of her. I live with my family. I am the oldest of 7 with one the way, and a child of my own on the way. My cat is not sociable. She fought with my mother's cat. She tried to attack the new puppy without it doing anything to her. She has attacked my siblings and I'm afraid she will hurt my newborn. If I take her to a pound she will be put down for sure. What do I do...?

Breed: Any CatType of Procedure: Declaw- Don\'t
Don't do it. It is cruel. Please look up behaviorist Jackson Galaxy and view his video about it. I worked at a shelter for 2 yrs, most of the cats that were surrendered were because they had inappropriate urination brought on by declawing! It also causes arthritis later in life. I'm currently a vet tech, and nothing makes me more angry than vets not informing people of the consequences or ignorant people thinking they know everything and doing it anyway. Please please please research this before traumatizing your friend.

Breed: MoronsType of Procedure: Need to be slapped
This is a site for people to find out the cost for something WE WANT DONE ! We will in fact get the procedure done regardless of what your negative comments are . I have seen the surgery performed , and as grotesque as it was . It was better then not taking in my cat , and her living a short life on the streets . As for the debate on making it illegal in the US . Did you people see the five hundred dogs rescued on there way to be slaughtered recently in China ? Many of them were already dead . The cats in other country's are beaten alive so their meat will be more tender to EAT ! You really wanna make us feel bad ! Go on with that , and go gave puppy mills , or kitty mills if you want a cause .
