4th kitty update question

Still considering our 4th kitty, Sven. Talked with the person and it sounds like it would be a nice fit. Sven is the same age as Lewis, is a neutured male, is used to other cats and a dog and they said he's very sweet and cuddly. He's a strictly indoor cat which is another plus in our household and he's all up to date on his shots. The only concern or question I have is this. All my cats have all their claws and poor Sven is declawed in both the front and back. Does anyone see a problem with this? Will this affect the relationship between the cats at all? Your thoughts and advice are very appreciated. He sounds so cute and sweet. He's a flame point siamese mix. I've always wanted a Siamese. I love interactive talkative cats.

4th Kitty

I, personally, don't see that there would be a problem with adopting Sven. His being declawed shouldn't be an issue with your other cats. When you bring him home, there will be an adjustment period as he settles in, but usually cats don't get past the hissing and growling stage as they define their "pecking" order -- so they shouldn't be fighting with their claws. And, since he's going to be an indoor cat, he won't have to defend himself outside.

He sounds like a beautiful cat. You posted a while back and didn't get any replies; so I hope you went ahead and made him part of your family.

Yay, she did adopt him, and his new name is Winston, which is wonderful. An update can be found here.

I'll close this thread so there's no confusion.

Thank you for your response. We did go ahead and adopt him about a week ago. We changed his name though to Winston. He is a good kitty, for sure. And it is as you say, not a problem. I didn't think it would be but I was curious as to what others' experiences were. Actually, Winston was the only one to have hissed and growled the first couple of days. There wasn't one hiss or growl from the other cats. I wrote several updates on another post. Thanks again.
