Hey Taylor

Welcome to the boards. I would also echo about the neutering whether indoors or outdoors.for sure.

With regards to declawing I think it's illegal over here in the UK so it's never an option. I have however found a brilliant alternative. If you buy one of those multi level scratch posts (cat trees as they are sometimes called) they are brilliant.

What you need to remember is that if your cat is bigger than a kitten then a small scratch post just wont allure your cat to it. It must be more than tall enough for the cat to fully stretch their entire upper body and to also not move whilst they are doing it. You will be wasting money on buying cheaper small posts believe me. I have 2 that went totally unused until I got my kitten recently and even he is starting to prefer using the bigger multi post cat tree (ours is about 5 foot tall with about 3 posts at the base and various levels).

Oh also to discourage cats scratching say a dining table or chair leg you can but Sticky paws which you attach to places most likely to be scratched. Cats hate to have sticky on their feet so that, with also moving the cat to a post when it tries anything , should see you just fine.

Any other way I can help, please let me know.
