    If you cut the ends of my fingers off, I wouldn't be too thrilled with you either.

    Declawing cats is cruel and completely unnecessary. I clip the tips - JUST the tips - of my cats' claws off every 3-4 weeks. That's enough to prevent them from damaging anything or getting claw snags, but they still have the claws they need to hold things and completely stretch out their backs. If you do that from an early age, it's easy to do. It would be a lot more challenging to start doing that when a cat is an adult.

    Why did your kitten pee on you? Maybe she was stressed out. Maybe she was in pain. Maybe you interrupted her on her way to the litter box. Maybe it just felt like the right thing to do at the time. There's really no way to know.

    Kathy it could be many things. We have three cats and they have decided that the house was much more fun to use than their litter box on occasion. Did you change the litter recently? She may not like the new litter. Any change in food/diet? Are there other cats around, either inside or out? Ours become territorial when they even sense another cat outside. Had it been a while since she went to the litter box or outside? She may have been ready to go when you interrupted her. If she keeps going inside or in different places than normal or is more consistent in going/more frequent, she may have a UTI or other problem that needs to be checked.

      Good suggestions. Some cats are sensitive to using a litter box that isn't clean, so it's important to scoop it at least once daily. We've always had one more litter box than cats, as well. When we had three cats, we had four litter boxes.

    How long ago was she fixed? Sometimes females under go stress and slight anxiety which will cause uncontrollable urinating after being fixed. She may also have a tract infection, which isn't likely because the vet should have spotted that.

    Also, she may be in pain and just couldn't hold it in. I used to work at a vet's office and assisted in spays and neuters and the females under go more stress, trust me.
