I'm so sorry to hear about your situation. Cancer is a horrible thing to have to go through. Best of luck to you in your fight.

There is no need to put the kitty through something so horrible as declawing. It truly is a form of mutilation. I think with the kind of suffering you are going through, you surely must not want to put your loved ones through more suffering...

You can teach the cat to scratch only appropriate surfaces, and trim its claws. It is true, declawing could cause litter box aversion, and because it eliminates cats' first line of defense, they become more likely to bite. It can cause lifelong pain, and postural/bone issues in the future.

Good for you. take care.
