Video Transcript

All right fine Jackson fine you told me all about declawing and how terrible it is and fine fine I won’t declare my cat my cat is still wrecking my house my cat is scratching on my furniture my cat is scratching me I don’t want my cat to scratch now what do I do well calm down sleepless and scratch Orville it’s time to get catified if you watch my episode about declawing you know exactly where I fall on the matter I mean I made myself pretty clear right don’t do it don’t do it it’s inhumane it’s cruel it’s unusual it’s unnecessary and it rarely works in solving behavioral problems it usually makes other ones crop up and did I tell you it hurts you said fine and you said it in loud loud ways I mean thank you by the way people the way you’re coming out teamcatmojo in force right how do you live with a cat and her claws well I’m going to tell you there’s a few things that we have to bear in mind: scratching is a necessity for cats it’s not a luxury cats need to first of all exercise the top part of their body it’s a nice way to grab something and pull down and get that exercise also it’s a really important part of marking territory now remember cat mojo 101 cats need to own places they don’t own places they become very very insecure and anxious and they act out in other ways if it is a necessary thing if cats do need to scratch well then what are we gonna do about that the first thing that we do is trim their nails you take either a nail trimmer or a human nail clipper or the ones that they sell in the store that are more like scissors whatever suits your fancy you press on the cat’s pad and boink out comes a nail all you got to do is take off a tip you don’t have to take off that part where the red meets the white you don’t have to worry about hurting them that way you don’t have to worry about what we call quicking them which is he that blood supply and making everyone unhappy just been and it’s done it’s also the approach folks just act as if you’re just walking up and saying hi and things will get much much easier also catch him napping anyway your cat sleeping or just waking up you’re having a lazy moment together you can have Clippers by the side of your bed all you’re doing is getting the nail out and clipping if every time you touch your cat’s paws they’re going to get clipped then they’re not going to let you do it so associated with positive things a nice quiet time and then maybe you only get one nail while you’re sitting there that’s fine because over the course of a couple days you’ll get them all the next thing that we want to start thinking about is where they’re scratching remember its territory important there’s two human scent soakers your couch in your bed where do you spend the most part of your time when you get home from work your couch and your bed and that’s where your scent is strong it’s a scent Soaker and because of that your cat is going to want to compliment your scent with theirs in the show you’ve seen this I’m sure a million times I get redundant yes in the know behind every note there has to be a yes if we don’t want them scratching on the arm of the chair we have to say well this location is still important let’s say you use a product like sticky paws sticky paws is double-sided sticky tape that is actually designed not to actually stick to your couch but when your cat touches it kind of tacky and they don’t like it okay we’ll say no and put sticky paws down the arm of the couch but right next door there has to be a scratching post there has to be a scratching post that works for them so that they can complement your scent with them and leave a visual and scent marker in a territory crucial area what makes a good scratching post all right let’s talk about that the first thing is a nice wide base because if your cat goes to scratch down and the thing wobbles well then the couch wins that’s your cat prefer corrugated cardboard or sisal rope or carpeting or natural wood what is it that your cat likes their there are a lot of nice scratches out of the market there but you gotta sometimes look in different places you know you don’t want to just go for the first one you see and then get mad when it doesn’t work in a situation where you have young children or if your immune compromised things like that which which in the past were kind of gimme reasons to declawed cat you can think of something like soft paws and soft paws is a brand name but there are other ones out there they’re basically just vinyl nail tips they go on they don’t hurt nothing like that and the only downside is that after a month or so they’re just going to pop off as the nail grows and then you trim the nails and do it again it is a way that there’s no way that the nails can do any damage I like that to be sort of a last resort because why do it why go through all the aggravation if you don’t have to plus I like accommodating the raw cat we want cats to be confident in the areas that they scratch we want them to assert themselves territorially we just want them to do it in the place that we want them to do it not the place we don’t want them to do it don’t forget you can start this when they’re young I mean seriously if you are clipping your cat’s claws and giving them the yes and the no in they’re young kittens you will not have a problem as they grow up and you know there’s a lot of people out there who are like why would I compromise for my cat you know you’ve got children you’ve got spouses and partners and let me tell you something the compromise can help with those guys dwarfs the needs of your cats so listen if you got to go out there and get a scratching post you got to put some sticky tape on your couch you gotta go put soft paws on you got to clip your cat’s nails that’s the cost of having a beautiful relationship with your cat it is an invaluable relationship and beautiful in every single way now you know everything that you need to know the basics anyway on making sure that your furniture and the people in your house stays safe while keeping your cat’s claws intact now in the meantime folks you can find me anywhere right anywhere and everywhere find me on Twitter Facebook Instagram Google+ there is no excuse I am all over the place be sure to join me on Wednesday February 5th I’ll answer your questions and we’re going to talk more about

humble opinion inhumane barbaric for the most part cosmetic and it is unnecessary what is decline decline is actually D knuckling do you think that all you’re doing is pulling out the claws of a cat to make your belongings safer or your kids or you but it’s not it is the amputation of the first joint of every knuckle on a cat’s paws I’m here to talk for the cats and the cats say of course I wouldn’t want my knuckles amputated and for what reason where we’re removing the initial line of defense for a cat when a cat tries to get your attention because they don’t like what’s going on then they’re going to pat pat at you and if you don’t get that message then the claws come out hey I’m trying to tell you something the third line of defense is their teeth that’s when they bite so when a cat gets their claws taken away because you think you’re going to be safer I’m telling you what you’re going to get bit more often than not cats who are declawed or more likely to get surrendered to shelters why is that usually because secondary symptoms attack goes in the litter box for the first time after surgery it hurts a cat doesn’t say wow my paws hurt what they say when they step in the

formation of their paws but they sink down please think about it later on in life are they more susceptible to arthritis for instance of course they are because we’ve changed the way nature made them now do cats who suffer decline have problems defending themselves sure they do declawed cats have a hard time climbing trees to get away from predators even though vets are still performing decline to a large degree they’ll still say keep your cat indoors because they have trouble defending themselves outdoors is decline with a laser better it’s less messy sure but there have been papers published that say that there is absolutely no correlation between laser decline and a decrease in the amount of chronic pain and discomfort that a cat will experience none whatsoever decline is so predictably painful that pharmaceuticals actually use it as a measure to test pain medication guys 22 countries on record and I’m sure more at this point have banned decline whole countries now we’ve been fighting in the states to ban it city by city because of some arcane laws that prevent us from going after the states at least in California but entire countries 22 of them well the one thing I don’t

How to Protect Furniture from Cats

Cats scratch to stretch muscles, remove old claw sheaths, and communicate with one another. To a cat, furniture may seem like a natural place to scratch. Instead of declawing your cat, there are a few things you can do to protect the furniture while you also train your cat. Teach your cat not to scratch the furniture by offering scratching posts, rewarding good behaviour, and being consistent with training. Your cat will soon prefer its scratching post and rewards over scratching the furniture.
