Question by Jeff S: What are alternatives to cat declawing?
I just got a cat from my Mom through my aunt whot had to get rid of her cat. My dog has a new play pal that he absolutely loves and they get along great. The problem is my cat is approximately 5 years old and is not declawed. I’ve read that declawing a cat (especially an adult cat) is not the most humane thing to do. Does anyone know any alternatives that I have? The cat is really scratching up some of my furniture and I’m at a crossroads as to whether to have her declawed or not.

They make little plastic nail caps you can superglue onto the cat’s nails. You can find them at pet stores or online. I guess you’d have to reapply them every so often as they wore out or came unglued.
