. My Little Lily Bud: Caturday!

Tike Jumping for Joy.
It's that time of the week again!  And I'm SO excited because Animal Planet had Cats 101 on earlier.  I love that show!

So, time for today's cat fact!

"Having a cat declawed is a major surgery known as onychectomy, performed under anesthesia, that removes the tip of each digit (from the first knuckle out) of the cat's forepaws. There is a slight chance of death in the surgery, and a declawed cat may have an increased risk of infection and life-long discomfort in its paws. This surgery is not recommended for an adult animal and is considered an act of animal cruelty in some countries. "

So please refrain from declawing your cats.  You can instead clip them carefully with a claw-clipper, or get kitty claw covers.  If you clip the nails, make sure you do so very carefully and only cut the tip because the claws have a vein in them and it could really hurt or even kill your cat if cut too deep.
