I have one cat who is declawed....she scratched my face while I was pregnant with DS 1, and it was either that or find her another home....she is totally fine now, and we aren't afraid of her. I have another cat, who is VERY destructive, and has become even more so since DS 2 is due soon. There are holes in our new curtains, places where the carpet has been ruined, seems like we can't get anything without her destroying it. I've tried water guns, tape, you name it. I'm wondering if any of you ladies have had both of your cats declawed, and after the fact, were you able to preserve some of your furniture?
Please don't lecture me about the inhumanity...I am very aware of both arguments regarding declawing. I fully support it.
