I had some of those plastic things for my cat...I still have the thousand yard stare. If op's cat is that much of a bitch anyway, he should avoid those things like a plague.

The caps worked for my oldest cat but he scratched while playing, not out of meanness. I'm pretty sure a cat this mean wont hold still to get her claws clipped, but maybe a vet or groomer can do it for you. I'm not sure what the policy is for aggressive cats. On a related note, maybe you should try to find the cause of the aggression. a friend of mine had a cat that turned super agressive. I thought maybe she was hurting somehow and I was right. she had an awful ear infection. perhaps t

Because an animal is aggressive, you turn it to a shelter? No. If an animal suddenly turns aggressive, there a cause to the aggression and it can be fixed. Many animals that enter shelters, even no kill shelters, are often sent to their doom to provide more room for other soon to come animals or because its been months and no one has adopted them.

All I was trying to say was that if he doesn't like the cat and no one will adopt him outright from him, then a shelter is the best option. I volunteer at a very respectable shelter that has plenty of cats adopted. We walk the dogs every hour or so, have play time with puppies, and have a bonding room for cats and kittens to be social with humans. So a shelter is not so bad, folks. Preconceived notions aside, I fully support shelters.

Honey. I did not say that. Quit assuming my thoughts. Also, I don't *work* at the animal shelter, I *volunteer*. I just don't damn every shelter in the entire world because there are some less than par ones out there. If you are so dissatisfied with the animal conditions in your local shelter, go volunteer and help them in the right direction; or go to your city council and make a complaint.

Bottom line: lots of animal shelters suck, and chances are that OPs local one does, too. So placing the cat (which is used to human interaction and most likely a comfortable home) in a less than nice shelter where it will probably die is not actually the best option.

If you would ever suggest declawing you clearly don't know the first thing about it. It's already been banned completely in several countries due to how cruel it is.

It's actually amputating the ends of the fingers. After the last knuckle. Many cats that are declawed won't go in their litter boxes because it hurts them. They become angry a lot of the time. And it IS illegal almost everywhere EXCEPT the United States. That should tell you something. Don't declaw. Cats come with claws. If you can't accept that, don't have a cat.

Well thanks for the information. But that's still a lot more than I assumed they ^ meant by "not as many as you think." That's still a lot, to me. It may only be against the law in 22 countries, but it's frowned upon in a lot of places I guess. That's why people I've talked to from other places say nobody does it. And if you think about it, America is supposed to be highly civilized, and we still do it here. Supposed to be…

And also, I meant almost every cat-keeping place in the world has it banned. So THAT is what I meant by "almost everywhere." 22 countries may not seem like a lot in relation to how many there are in the world, but it does in relation to how many of them keep cats as pets!

regardless of how frowned upon it really is, we've just been told the horrible effects it can have on cats. im pretty sure we can draw our own moral conclusion from that without needing reassurance from however many countries.

156 so rip off the cat's fingers? Oh no, something in my life is misbehaving, better mutilate it! Durr hurr. How about actually trying to see what is causing the problem, cats aren't fucking idiots and it's probably acting out because of a stress-related thing or something.

actually it's more humane they do not chop their fingers off. It's done with a lazer and they are asleep. the healing process is very fast. for all animal lovers here you should worry about what other countries do to "pets" because it's far from humane. I do a lot of animal rights and this is far from crul.

My cat likes me. He's a Siamese though and they tend to form close bonds with their humans. I'm willing to bet OPs cat has had some kind of traumatic experience or they're in pain. Cats don't just attack things bigger than them for the hell of it.

You'd never need to buy a cat anyway. There are thousands upon thousands in shelters. The best cat I've ever had in my whole life, I got from a shelter about 6 months ago. They know when you save them. They're grateful.

I had four cats! all of them are loving and caring. my female didnt like being around other cats so we ended up having to find a new home for her, with my parents thankfully. the rest are all fixed males. all four came off the streets. They always manager to make me stop crying when they come to me purring. I love cats!!
