So, Charlie is YOUR cat, Simon? I can't quite tell. Is he a longhair gray tabby or is he gray and white?
Felix (neighbour's cat who lives on the corner of the alley & has lots of friends)
Also, a cat without any claws is at a severe disadvantage in terms of (a) defending itself or (b) catching prey, should the cat have to fend for itself for whatever reason.
@Jorita Declawing at least the front claws of cats is very common in the U.S. I don't know about elsewhere. It involves taking not just the claw but the first knuckle of their paw off. This is the part of the foot cats normally walk on. When I look at that lovely little being who depends upon me for everything, who curls up on my lap when I sit down and sleeps on my bed at night, I can't imagine how anyone could do that to a cat. I certainly couldn't do it to her, and especially not to protect a couch or chair from being used as a scratching post.
This is my beast, which has been catnapped by my sister:
He's not an outside cat... by choice. He's thrown out from time to time, but hurries back in, especially if it's cold or wet outside, which in Norway means 97% of all days.
You talk about your cats having claws? Do people realy remove their cats claws as I have never had a cat that did not have claws,
I love my cat Diago she is a female found her in a farm shed, snow white with blue eyes. My son gave the name.
One hears many cat lovers saying it's wrong to let cats out because the outdoor cat lives a shorter life generally, dying under the wheels of a car or being killed by a dog or other predator, or picking up a disease from one of their prey items.
On the other hand, cats weren't born to live in a house or apartment. They get bored. I will only let Squeaky out supervised, so I do spend a fair amount of time giving her attention or playing with her.
They other argument I hear is the adverse impact of cats on natives species (house cats are basically a North African desert cat), so they are an introduced species everywhere else. There is a lot of debate over how adverse cats are on native species, especially birds:
But I've seen other studies that claim to show that (as one might expect, because they can fly) birds are only a small part of an outdoor cat's take. Mostly they kill rabbits and small rodents as well as snakes, lizards, and amphibians.
