Declawing

What do you guys think about removing your cat's nails?

I have 3 cat's who were born with cerebellar hypoplasia, so they all have their nails and always will. I clip them every few weeks. But their balance is so much better, there's almost no detectable imbalance when they run or jump now.

But there are many people with leather furniture who refuse cats if they can't declaw.
