Claws :O

My older cat, Scout, is declawed, but my newer cat Oscar does have his claws. He has two cardboard scratchers and he does scratch on them, but his nails are still really sharp. When he walks around his nails sometimes get stuck in the carpet, the screen door, and the couch...and I think it hurts. We asked a lady at the animal rescue foundation if we could get a wooden tall post for him to scratch on and she told us not to, that it will only make his nails sharper. Should we just go get them clipped or try a wooden scratching post?

I wouldn't put sand paper on the post because it might hurt the pads on their feet. Just keep his nails cut.

You can learn about cutting and trimming the claws and do it yourself.
