Do you work for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Federal Government, or another place of business that participates in workplace giving?

Things To Know When Deciding To Declaw

Declawing a cat is a controversial issue many people consider when looking to add a feline into the family fold. Of course the advantages up front are obvious. Furniture, carpeting, household textiles, walls, doors, and yes, even humans will escape marring or hurtful scratches. However, there is a flip side to declawing which should be considered before making a decision whether or not to proceed with such a procedure.  Please read this article for more information.
