Yeah because some kind people adopted him. I'm glad he has a good life now.

I just get mad at the type of people who abandon pets.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Youre welcome. Also declawed house cats tend to be cranky and irritable since they cant satisfy their clawing instinct.

It depends on the individual, at the shelter we've had some that try to like eat you but others that are love muffins :3
I have noticed that a lot of the declaws bite though :(

I get if you're anti declawing, but it saves many cat's lives yearly. Better than being put down.
I was told (when working at the vet's office) that those soft paws things can mess up a cat's feet, because they keep the claws from retracting, and we did several declaws, and a couple cats had them on and they were pretty messed up. So, I think declawing is better than those plastic nail covers. >_<

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Personally I believe in working with the cat to reward good behavior in scratching the scratching post.

I'm glad my vet's office refuses to declaw because they care about animal welfare more than money, and I admire that.
