You asked about claw covers.........they are pretty cool and I wear them sometimes. But, the best is to learn to use a scatching post. I love the Ultimate Scatching Post from SmartCat or Drs. Foster and Smith.
My human had a declawed cat years ago. She was a love and had no behavior issues. She had perfect litter box manners and lived to be 17 years old.
Good luck finding the right kitty match!
applauseThanks for looking at the shelter and rescue kitties!

Concats Missy & Rufus! I like the claw covers, too. And, yes, the colored ones are the most fun & easier to keep track of!

If chewing them off is a problem....hhhmmmm....my issue is more the opposite...they REALLY stay on! My human has to trim them off. I think it might be choosing the right size & right amount of glue.

Still, they are a great tool for keeping my claws out of the window screens!

red faceOh Harley! That is embarrassing! I have to agree with the others - get the anal sacs checked out. You can guess why one of my nicknames is "Scooter" - I am very clever to locate comfy things to rub against. I have to visit the vet every few months to have them expressed. Sounds like yours are expressing a bit too much! MOL! Good luck. Just remember, the vet has seen everything - he/she won't embarrass you or your human.kitty

kitty I like EVO & my fur is bunny soft and plush as can be! Yes, smaller, darker poops - and I drink lots of water (I love to have my human turn on the tap for me!)
big grin Echoing the rest of the posts, changing diets has to be gradual or you will definitely have issues at one end or the other. I also have access to (Hill's) Prescription Diet TD & like that. The chunks are big and help keep my teeth and gums free of tartar.
Every kitty has their likes and dislikes and some special issues, so one food for the whole family is not our human's goal. I have my favorite (EVO) but, enjoy nibbling the TD set out for my sisters, too.
Good luck, have patience.....sounds like you are getting good choices. OH! and a little laxatone is a tasty treat if hairballs are an issue - or just to help the poop pass.... way to go

waveCheck out my Soft Paw claw covers! But, as other kitties have stated, not all of us are prone to scratch in the wrong places.

Nabi, my foster brother, scatches his scatching post really hard - but when he scratches the funiture he really doesn't extend his claws! He just wants to mark it with his own scent.

My sister, Muffin, is a big scratcher, but keeping her claws trimmed solves the problem.

Every kitty is different! dancing

Tell Dad to relax - MOL! Good luck!

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > So California Scottish Fold Rescue - urgent

Tara- Midnight- Moon

I'm in the sink - turn on the tap!
 
 
Purred: Thu Jul 19, '07 8:39am PST 
Hello!
I am a social worker for Ramona VNA and Hospice in Hemet, CA (inland
southern California). One of my hospice patients has two beautiful adult
male Scottish Fold cats named Tom and Jerry who are neutered, declawed,
house broken (use litter box). I believe they are 3-5 years old and they
have great temperments. The owner of these cats has moved into a residential
care facility and has to give up her cats by THIS Friday, July 20...(I
apologize for the short notice, I found out yesterday afternoon and have
been trying to find alternatives). Does your organization know of anyone
willing to foster or adopt these cats? Any input would be greatly
appreciated as this matter is time sensitive.Please call my office at
951-658-9288 ext. 3593. I've spoken with my coworkers and the staff at the
facility and there are no takers yet. Thanks very much!
Amy Arndt
