Not everyone has a big enough place that they can give a rabbit it's own room. I don't care for the idea of declawing cats either, but if I had to make a choice between getting rid of my rabbits or getting rid of my cat, I would consider declawing my cat. There are new procedures now where they use a laser, and it is not nearly so bad. I have two cats, one is fine with it's claws, and one destroys everything he can with his claws. I can't even open up windows because he destroys the screens. I see declawing as a last resort, but I would not rule it out. I gave my kid's grandpa a cat I got from the shelter that was already declawed. I don't know what it was like for the cat to have the procedure done, but he has no problems now and is fine without his front claws.
