I think letting the cat outside is the worst. I hate that our neighbors allows their kitties to run our street. We are bird watchers, and those damn cats chase off out birds, and attack the nests before they're able to learn how to fly. Damn cats! Keep them indoors!

Well I'm asked by my fiance to declaw my cat and I'm mad, I feel bad but she does ruin things. We just moved into a beautiful 3,000 sqft house so my fiance wins, I got the house hehe.

Didn't the declawing debate go on for a couple of weeks? It Definitely brought out some strong opinions. I still say anyone that isn't willing to deal with claws shouldn't have a cat in the first place.

declawing, 100% people were very divided, but sometimes not in a good way... go kitties with clawses!

If you won't train the cat to not claw your furniture or just learn to deal with it, then do not have a cat! How would feel if all your fingers were cut off just below your nail? So, yah....declawing.

Declawing is always a hot-button topic for me. I will go from understanding and kind to judgmental and hateful in 60 seconds. I can't help but feel righteous indignation when people brutally, barbarically, and stupidly disfigure a living creature.

declawing is something that really affects all cat owners and brings up the issue of whats cruel and what isn't.

Ellen vs. Mutts and Moms was certainly dramatic, but I guess "Did Heather Mills Kill a Dog" was the most controversial. It really was a heated year of pet news!
