Whatever you decide to do, DON'T DECLAW. It's now considered to be a very inhumane practice as it alters the cat's bone and muscle alignment causing multiple issues as they age, causes pain when they try to use the litter box so they associate the litter box with pain and eliminate outside of it instead, AND it's a very painful procedure to them. It's basically amputating the very tips of their paws. The likeness of which is having the tips of your fingers amputated where your finger nails are.

Please don't declaw.
