    Default OT: For Gregory, Tuxedo kitty

    She belongs to Anna, a buddy of mine in Arizona.
    Her name is "Hotrod":

    She is wearing "pretty paws" claw caps in this pic:

    http://tinypic.com/?t=postupload

    IMHO she has the most interesting coloring. :-)

    She was a bottle raised stray, Anna got her when her eyes were still
    closed...

    Me either - there is no photo attached to that tinypic. I'd love to
    see her colors and does she really have claw caps? Please post the
    photo again. Thanks.

    Re-posted here, sorry about that! Pretty paws are a good alternative to
    declawing. I just claw trim here. ;-)

    Much better... declawing is a serious amputation... how'd any of yoose lke
    to have the first joint of all your fingers and toes hacked off. Declawing
    makes it a non cat physically and causes serious psychological damge to
    felines. Anyone who would declaw a cat enjoys pulling wings off butterflies
    and worse. Declawing is indicative of severe mental illness:
    http://community-2.webtv.net/zuzu22/stopdeclawtemporary

    With a proper scratching post the clawing problem is completely resolved and
    all are happier. The posts sold at pet shops are ridiculously short,
    unsturdy, and covered with the worst of all possible materials (carpeting -
    the best way to teach cats to claw rugs and other fabrics), it's no wonder
    they don't use them exclusively. A proper post needs to be at least 42"
    tall and sturdy enough not to wobble in use. I use a section of 4" X 4"
    cedar fence post wrapped with sisal and mounted on a double thickness of
    3/4" plywood 30" square, with a strong plywood perching shelf on top. In my
    basement I put up a couple of white birch logs for scratching and climbing.
    I have six cats and they damage nothing, only reason they're banned from the
    living room is to keep that one large room fur free, saves me a lot of extra
    vacuuming.

    Anyone feels ambitious this is a great scratching post project:

    That's neat and doable! Saved. One occasionally sees a wooden
    ladder on freecycle.

    I was VERY glad that I read up on declawing before I got my first
    cat and was prepared when my vet so casually suggested he be
    declawed when he was neutered.

    If you have pets don't own any reclining furniture either... in many
    civilized countries recliner furniture is illegal in the home... as are
    motorized hospital beds... they're death traps for children and pets.

    Heh! Me too. She had a neighbor do it for her.

    Hotrod is one lucky kitty. First kitten Anna ever hand raised. She was
    constantly e-mailing me for advice as mom and I had done a couple of
    litters that way. I was more than happy to help. :-)

    Trick is getting them thru digestive problems.

    Declawing is pretty drastic.
    Rule here is "use 'em you lose them". I keep toenail clippers handy
    and all are trained to tolerate trimming.

    Lasts a good 2 weeks usually.

    I trim too, but they grow quickly. I'd never heard of claw caps
    before. What do they cost and how long do they last? I'll get some
    for my kitty. He has scratched the leather furniture (playing with
    his toys) and hubby is in a dither over it. I'm more annoyed by him
    clawing the oriental rugs and my computer chair when he wakes up in
    the morning.
