To DeClaw or Not To DeClaw – The Humane Society of the United States opposes declawing cats except in rare cases when it is necessary for medical purposes, such as the removal of cancerous tumors from cats’ nail beds.
Tame nail-trimming fears – Pet owners may be more apprehensive about cutting dark-colored nails because it’s more difficult to see the blood vessel in the center of the nail. Patience, the right tools and practice can make nail grooming easier
What to do when your cat needs a bath – According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, indoor cats rarely need baths. That’s because indoor cats use their tongues and teeth to stay relatively clean. While cats can benefit from routine brushing, which can reduce shedding and cut back on hairballs, the bath tub is a place cats need not visit regularly.
