Black Sabbath’s Geezer Butler Speaks Against Declawing Cats

Declawing is literally ripping the nail out at the root.
An indoor cat might get out.
An indoor cat might become an outdoor cat (it happened to my precious Fluffy).
Cat scratching furniture? Try giving them something else to claw. No need to buy an expensive version, you can make one with rug scraps (make sure theyre cat safe!) and wood, or buy a cardboard version at the dollar store. A little cat nip sprinkled on it will get your cat where you want him/her. Be sure to praise them when you see them clawing the scratching post!
Another technique is a water spritzer, like the kind used for watering plants or doing hair, also available at dollar stores. Fill with clean water. When you see kitty scratching, sternly say, “no”, and give them a light misting (not the direct spray). Then direct them over to what you do want them to scratch.
It’s also important to keep your cats nails trimmed — not cut. Have the vet show you how. This will help keep them from scratching, too.
Above all, DO NOT DECLAW!
I am proud to live in what might be the first state to ban declawing. Yay New York!
