Evangeline has been adopted ... and she will keep her toes intact!
Evangeline was returned to us because we were too contrary to waive our strict "no declawing" policy. She is not a particularly destructive cat but she was not given a scratching post or taught to play with a cat charmer or turbo-scratcher. We don't like for anyone have to give up their cat but we never bend on this issue. Most owners who are not willing to work with scratch-training are not going to be able to cope with the problems often associated with declawing (biting and urinating on furniture). So she is back with us ... and she is already using our scratching posts. Cats learn fast.
Evangeline just turned one year old.
