OK, that age means your vet is probably adding in additional painkillers and antibiotics. Does this also include any pre-surgical testing? If so, look into it and decide whether you really want to pay for that. If that price includes extra drugs for your cat's comfort and potential infection...that's not a bad price. Of course - you'll need to decide how you feel about prophylactic antibiotics. Ask for a line by line accounting of that price tag and see if they are adding in unnecessary test/drugs etc. Research research research. And then, if you still can't decide - PM me and I'll hook you up with my friend, the vet. She's not a fan of bill padding...

Declawing is illegal in South Australia it is considered animal cruelty, but you're not here so do whatever.

I do realized that but its unnatural and I feel like Iím robbing the cat of his manhood. I understand the reasons its necessary. My cat is my baby, and I think of it like this would I do the same to my son. I know its stupid but it just how I feel (shrug)

Grapist has a point - after all, if you castrate your son, he might grow up to sing like an angel, you cat - not so much.

If you don't wanna get him declawed, go to your local garden center and get a 97 cent spray bottle. Fill it with water,and set it to spray a stream. Whenever the cat does anything you don't want it to, light him up from across the room with it. The cat doesn't associate the stream with you and won't end up hating you. A squirt gun will work too but the bottle can sit next to your remote/computer/nightstand for weeks on end without leaking. My wife has 2 cats (with claws)and I've trained both this way and they haven't ever messed up anything since they were kittens. That being said I like dogs (works on them too).

yeah, but this method would actually require some effort and discipline on the pet owners part...

My kitty only needs to see the bottle to get him to stop. If he sees you reaching for it he looks at you and goes "How did you know I was going to be evil???"
If the cat doesn't respond to plain water you can put a bit of lemon juice or vinegar in the water. They get a bad taste when they lick it off.

His name is Bruce, he is frightened of birds.
