This post has made me really sad. I would never, ever consider declawing and as it is illegal in my country, it isn’t an opportunity for anyone.
OP: If you think that you may still do this, please rehome your cat now instead. It will make it a lot easier for your cat in the long run. I agree with the PP who said you were looking for permission, not opinions, so IMO, rehoming is the better option all round.
I am the owner of a bitey, scratchy cat and I love her more than anything. I would never amputate parts of her to make my life easier.

You’re not understanding – it’s not a logic fail, as you so eloquently state because what you described is illegal treatment of a baby. Declawing is not illegal. Feel free to look at others who have posted their disagreement with declawing in a mature way to get an idea of how to effectively argue.
ETA – if you think I will make my decision based on nasty attacks from strangers instead of well-reasoned, informative discourse, that’s truly illogical, but thank you for weighing in.

Please see my OP. You’re right, I.didn’t ask for opinions, but I didn’t ask for permission either. I asked to hear from those who had done it.

I’m closing this thread at the request of the OP.
