Subject: RE: BS: Buttje is in heaven now
Folks, I am sorry I responded to one particular part of Leadbelly's initial post. Bekka, you know I agree with you. This is the last I will post about it in this thread.

Over here, cats are considered a "domestic" animal. The following guide, for cat lovers in the military, lists some reasons why they do not need to be let to roam free: Don't let your cat go AWOL.

Oh, and NO, we do not declaw our cats. I consider it inhumane. I trim them, they have scratching boxes, and, if someone is really worried, there are clear plastic panels for affixing to the corners of furniture or pretty plastic caps one may put on their cats' claws. (I don't do that, either.)
