    I don't have any alternate suggestion, but I would like to put my vote in against the declawing....I find it very inhumane also. Sorry, I hate giving an opinion against something and not having an alternative suggestion, but just had to put it out there. The cats that I've had just listened to me when I said no (most of the time)...apparently I had the rarest cats in the world....b/c cats will just do what they want. Kind of like when a Bulldog is hearing you tell him to do something and you can see him thinking about whether or not he wants to do it.

    When my children were small my daughter brought home a kitten.... said her friend couldn't keep it with their other cat so she offered to keep it til they found it a new home..... yeah right. Frosty finally died after seventeen years with us.... I loved that darn cat! We had him declawed as a kitten and he had a long, happy life. He loved to go out at night. Quite often he would bring home his nights 'catch'; usually a chipmunk which are thought of as pests here. RIP Frosty

    I don't really have anything to add that hasn't been said. My mom and I did add those cap/tip things Becky was talking about to my mom's cat (she is also known as devil kitty LOL). They don't stay on very long (maybe a month or 2) and OMG it's a nightmare putting them on!!!! Baby Kitty is 10 years old and still scratches the couches from time to time so that was my moms solution because she is against de-clawing.

    i'm against declawing but our cat, Meep, has a chair that she already destroyed. we call it meep's chair. once you get new furniture, keep a piece of the old stuff around for the cat to continue clawing

    The devil cat hates catnip, I have bought toys and the actual catnip, he could care less, he just walks past the catnip and goes on his way.

    In Britain there is no such thing as de-clawing a cat (or not that I've ever heard of) so to be honest I find the whole procedure quite shocking to even think of.

    I like the idea of putting up a claw post and the double sided tape to try and deter the cat!!!

    Is there anyway you can keep that room locked so he can't get in there to claw your couch when you're not there??
