- Unfortunately, my parents are going to get him declawed. I tried to talk to them that I think it's cruel, and they just called me weird. I don't want my kitten to suffer. I was asking though, because Koa is going to be an indoor cat(Ragdolls are too docile for the outside, but you most likely know that anyways) Opinions? (2/2)embreeon
I would say help educate them on the effects of declawing. Show them the infographic and other articles about declawing or the Paw Project documentary. The effects of declawing are pretty extensively documented / most shelters won’t let someone adopt a cat if they plan on declawing.
