Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I wouldn't listen to anything this woman named jacqueline Neilson has to say. Any woman that endorses cat mutilation (de-clawing) as a result to protect a couch needs to have her head examined. Let me ask you this jacqueline: Why don't you do it? Why don't you have your fingernails removed. It's certainly not dangerous or harmful in anyway. You said that about cats. Why don't you spend the rest of your life without fingernails and then tell us it doesn't bother you. What right do you have to tell people de-clawing is" okay be considered after other avenues to minimize property damage have been tried". Let me tell you this Jacqueline: De-clawing should NEVER be considered. Please find a different occupation that doesn't involve animals. Anyone should know that a woman with your ethics is not qualified to write a book about animals let alone give advice of any kind.
