It’s been a while, but I wanted to update on the kitties and their neuter & declaw.  Yes, we decided on the declaw even though we had some long discussions.  We want these kitties to be part of our family for many  years.  If a scratching problem develops, we understand it will be even more unpleasant to have it done later.  So, they are minus a few superfluous body parts now. 

They seemed happy to be home.  Treat really let me know that he was happy to be back by coming up on my chest and rubbing all over me while he was switching his tail back and forth vigorously.  It seemed like a bit of conflict.  Happy in the front & agitated in the back.  Odd…

We switched to Feline Fresh litter before the declaw and we just love it!  It’s pine pellets and it very clean and easy to use.  We are both surprised by how much nicer and easier to use it is than the clay litter.  Of course, it’s hard to find…

Smudgie has taken on the job of “kitty nanny” and he takes it very seriously.  He cleans their heads all the time and they really seem to like it, particularly Treat, who seeks him out.
