Twitter Thread: People Are Giving The Best Alternatives To Delaw Cats And This Is Awesome

Cats have claws as their mysterious weapons, and they inherit this from their ancestors. Nowadays, domesticated or pet felines don’t necessarily need their claws, but they are part of their anatomy. As cats’ claws continue growing, it can somehow impact their daily behaviors. Cats will need to scratch things to keep their claws not too long, otherwise, they’ll have to move and walk with difficulties.

Some cat owners decide not to keep these claws because they don’t want their cats to scratch other animals or destroy their furniture. For some people, the reason is much simpler. When they bathe their cats, they get scratched, feel painful, and therefore, they want to do something to protect their flesh.

Declawing cats, however, doesn’t receive a lot of support. The American Veterinary Medical Association has recently shown their disagreement with people having their cats declawed because it makes these felines have problems while walking, and the recovery takes a long time.

Therefore, people are finding an alternative way to declaw their cats without harming them. This Twitter user comes up with creative and practical alternatives and shares them with the whole Internet. Her posts make a useful Twitter thread from which other owners can learn and apply to their cats as well. Scroll down to read the full thread.
