Hi Glenda thank you for checking out Crashs.I first of all want to say that I too am not one for declawing!! As some of our rescue cats do come in already declawed and yes they are declawed if they are not too old.As much as I hate to say it,people (unlike you and I) would prefer to adopt cats already declawed. :( Also think about over 100 cats living under the same roof.Most get along but there could be many bad wounds from fights. Like I said I believe as does Jen the lady that runs the places that ALOT of cats are discarded out into the streets because they claw the furniture and etc. And they don't take the time to try and train them to do differently.I clip all my cats claws myself.I personally don't like it.But I can't tell her how to run her shelter :( I respect ALL that Jen does for the over 200 cats that she takes in and can't say anything bad about what she does.I am sorry if it hurts you and I respect your opinion.Thanks for your good wishes on our sweet Brian.Oh,also all 4 of my boys came from Sids and they are beautiful and healthy!!! If you go back and look up Mystique at Sids,she is probably my next baby to bring home since I lost my beautiful Genevieve.Also in the tabbies at Crashs check out Honeysuckle.I rescued her and her 5 kittens from my backyard.My boyfriend has the kittens at his house,we are trying to get homes for them.

I see he started out with ear mites, so he is apparently just having a terrible time getting his ears cleared up, infections,etc. After reading the introduction to Crashlanding, of course it was so beautiful, it made me cry...I went next to Tabbies, my weakness and clicked on a few of your guys there, like Bennie and Brut...love those guys...I see Brut is FIV...Well then I realized everyone had been declawed , everyone that was not FeLV+. My heart just sank! Is that their policy? If it is my heart is as broken for the guys that are FeLV- as for the guys that are FeLV+. Please let me know what is going on there with the declawing or please tell me it was a computer glitch. Thank you Sherry. I do appreciate seeing where you are helping our poor little guys and my first impression is it is a first rate outfit...I am however, one of those people that is every bit as mortified of declawing as any cat might be...I hope they can someday realize that declawing is not a good thing to do to a cat... God bless little Brian and you too, for all you do.
