Getting My Mojo Back

Back in mid-July, in an outrage worthy of being the lead story in Cat Fancy magazine (though I am not the least bit fancy), I was deprived of numerous little mouth-weapons (i.e., teefs). 

Now, as if that wasn't bad enough, while I was anesthetized, my claws--my beautiful, long, shimmering swords of doom--were efficiently and summarily clipped right down to their nubs, Kitties, to their little nubs!

It was Not Right.

But unlike teefs, the claws--well, the claws can be coaxed back from oblivion by regular and intensive workouts on the sisal scratcher.

I confess I was a tiny bit distracted by an interesting noise in the street, but I assure you I got right back to my regular workout.

If I scratch it, they will grow.

  1. Woot! Good to hear those talons are making a return.
    Just don't show them to your mom.
    You don't want any "trimming" !

  4. At least you still have your claws! Before I came to live with my current humans, somebody had me DECLAWED! So I have stumpy half-front-feet. I do my best to still do damage with my back claws, but it is not the same.

  10. *shudder* claw cutting is becoming more common here and some of us (in particular a brown burmese tart) just lie back and let it happen Not me thought, King Spitty, not me. I am like you and savour my scissorpaws.

  11. You've had your weapons of mass destruction for so long, I'm sure it was quite a shock to have them butchered down to dullness. But I bet your weaponry will be in full force in another month or so.

  14. I am glad you have your claws back Spitty. I had never had my claws clipped until I went to the vet to have my teeth cleaned a few years back. They brought me back out and mum took me home. I went to sharpen my claws on the carpet as I usually do and my feet just slid along the top. My mum was mad because she hadn't asked and they hadn't told her.
    She knew I needed them for my outdoor tall tree climbing. She rang up and asked what they were playing at, and a nurse said she thought they looked too sharp! My mum gave her a big piece of her mind!

  16. We are all indoor cats and get our claws trimmed almost every week. We are quite used to it and ALMOST enjoy it. At least we enjoy the attention from mom.

  23. Spitty, that is quite a stealth figure you cut in that sexy photo. We may have to blow up the photo to poster size so we can better gaze at your furry six pack & that muscular floofy tail. It is outrageous that that vet stole your teef while you were knocked out, but then to chop off your magnificent talons without even asking is a crime against a feline. Don't they l know that they willy-nilly clipped away your most valuable weapon & human attention-getters? Well the teef may be gone forever, but the claws will return even sharper than they were prior to being whacked off. Keep up your ripping rehab. Spitty and soon you will be able to test their sharpness by sticking one or two needle fine claws into a select part of your human's anatomy. If she shrieks, then the claws are back to 100% & your hard work paid off.

Leave me a meow or a hiss; I don't mind a hiss or two. . . or even a bitey.
