Since the claws didn't hurt me when she just attacked, she decided to bite harder.

This bitch is crazy.

You can also try getting her some scratching post-- any old cheap one. Then find some fresh catnip and rub it all over the post; really grind it in. I say fresh not dried because the fresh stuff is much more potent. I guess good dried catnip is better than none. Anyways, she'll divert all her clawing attention to the post until the catnip wears off. Then reapply.

I say declaw....only if kittah will stay indoors at all time for the rest of it's life. I have two that are declawed and they're fine. Even with no front claws (rears are still there) they still drift on the hardwoods. If you really want to see a driftin kittah.....wet their back feet really good and chase them

This seems to have gotten the job done to stop the human blood shed, she can't climb the drapes, nor can she propel herself around by stabbing the cloth furniture at my GF's house. Maybe its time to move her into my place with the nice furniture.
I did that to a cat we had. Problem is that it will last only a few days to a week or so. Can't recall exactly how long it lasts, but those claws grow back super fast.

Enjoy every day you don't have this bitch:



Sure, she doesn't look too sinister but I have scars on my feet which prove otherwise. She's taken down countless lizards, rats, a couple snakes and a raccoon (which she kept cornered until I shot it). I've also found dead opossums which were shredded beyond all recognition (looked more like a dog's handiwork). Baby birds are her favorite, she climbs all the trees in our backyard and raids the nests at night. While outside, she's always flanked by three or more screaming Mockingbirds. Our 130 lb. Labrador is scared shitless of her and flinches if she walks into the room.

Finding a lizard corpse with a single slit down its throat every other day is enough of a warning to make sure she gets fed.

I wouldn't declaw a cat unless I could 100 percent guarantee he/she would never be outside.

They work well if you don't mind the continual replacement of one or two of them each week or so. I think you can get them at softpaws.com
