    Control your cat

    Holy smokers, one of the rules of Instructables states to be nice. Some folks are behaving pretty catty. Lol! Weirdo62 is obviously not a very good authority controling a cat. The author is only giving ideas as to how to control a cat and well, good luck with that. This thread comes to the point where a few people are tearing into Weirdo62, who wrote this item 7 years ago, regarding his spelling and grammatical errors and therefore makes me feel that this thread should be deleted. The author, who I'm guessing is not a veterinarian, making the suggestion as an option to declaw a cat, could very well be read by someone who is willing to carry out the heinous deed in the mutilation of their cat. Declawing is comparable to having all your fingers and toes removed up to the first knuckle. St...see more »Holy smokers, one of the rules of Instructables states to be nice.

The author, who I'm guessing is not a veterinarian, making the suggestion as an option to declaw a cat, could very well be read by someone who is willing to carry out the heinous deed in the mutilation of their cat. Declawing is comparable to having all your fingers and toes removed up to the first knuckle. Stating his cat felt better, or so he believes, makes his cat then a very special example. Hurting your cat to save materialistic things is just wrong. Its my feeling the author wants to be just that, an author. I would have liked to have seen footnotes from where all the steps were derived. Bearing in mind that this is all about different options, perhaps the step regarding declawing should be erased, if not the whole article. Weirdo62 please write other things but not about what you truly don't have a clue about. Declawing is extremely cruel. Hate the spray bottle because I tried it after a friend's suggestion and I may be highly empathetic but I believe it really hurt my cat's feelings because of the look I saw on his face. It felt like I was aiming a gun at him and for awhile after, using any spray bottle for whatever use causedhim to runaway from me. I honestly felt that I really hurt my best friend's feelings. Ended up trying green painter's tape with the lowest tack possible and I was never suspected. It worked with him and then I'd take him to his scratching post that I rubbed catnip on in order to give him something of a positive reinforcement. Helping him remove the tape, which didn't pull his fur at all, brought him back closer to me. The Lion and Mouse fable. Bottomline, please use your best judgement and as well ask a veterinarian what to do. I hope all of you blessed with the honour of caring for a pet will be loved by your furball for all its days.
