She is a very cute cat. Declawing is something to be taken very seriously. It is not just removing a fingernail but is amputation of the first digit of the pets toes. It is painful and I imagine would be hard for an older cat to adjust too. It should only be done when all other options have been tried and have failed and the choice is either declaw or give the pet up...well, I would rather a pet have a home and no claws than no home and claws but again remember it will cause the cat pain and you can try trimming the claws or putting the soft paws on her.
