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.

When cats’ claws are removed, this can change the way their feet meet the ground, resulting in the same painful feelings that human beings may feel when wearing uncomfortable footwear. In addition, improperly removed claws may begin to grow back.

Declawing also may contribute to nerve damage and result in the formation of potentially painful bone spurs. The HSUS also notes that some newly declawed cats begin to bite as a defense mechanism, putting themselves and anyone they encounter in danger.
