Hi,

I am so sorry that Ra is getting worse instead of better.

Placing Ra in another home or trying to, may be the best thing, but I believe that first other options need to be considered.
I do not recommend declawing Ra, as he would be likely to bite even more after the surgery. Declawed cats often bite as they no longer have claws to defend themselves. However, you might consider Soft Paws, which are plastic nail caps that are applied with glue and last at least a month. Please find out if your vet offers this option. If not, I believe that you can get these nail caps at some petstores.

You should also consider talking to your vet about medication for Ra. There are several drugs for behavior modification used in cats these days. I have a cat on the drug Clomicalm, and he is doing very well. I personally an leary of animal behaviorists. I have no doubt that there are good ones out there, but there are also some just out to make money. Perhaps your vet can recommend a good one.

Take care, and please let us know how things go.

Regards,
PHKitkat
