|I was declawed, on all four paws, and I was very shy too, in the beginning, after my former owner had to give me up, and I was adopted, not from a shelter, but from a foster home. I didn't have any behavior issues, unless you count being picky about my litterbox and chosing to go somewhere else. I was very sweet.
I can't purromise that that would happen with every declawed shelter cat. It's not necessarily the declawing that makes their behavior the way it is, it's how the cats are raised, how much human contact they've had, health issues, etc.
In fact, right now, Mistress is looking for a declawed shelter cat to adopt. She would prefur not to declaw, but unfortunately it's a rule in he building she lives in So she wants to give a declawed shelter cat another chance. Fortunately for the cats (unfortunate for Mistress) they are few and far between, the nearest adoptable declawed cat is many, many miles from her home.
