We have a cat who was declawed in her front paws before we adopted her. Last year we got a leather couch & well, she has put lots of scratches in it. Grrrr. I just can't keep her from jumping on it & putting her back claws in it. She stays indoors so she wouldn't need them for protection from other cats & animals, but I didn't know if they can be safely removed liked front ones can. It won't do anything for the existing scratches of course, but I was hoping to avoid further damage.

Removing cats claws is comparable to having our fingers removed to the first joint. The older the cat is, the worse it is for them. I've always clipped and filed their claws and don't have any problems.
