Please reconsider having your cat declawed. It can make a cat very aggressive, and they will sometimes bite. They realize they have lost their defence and it changes their personality. It is also an excruciatingly painful operation for the cat. It consists of amputating what on your hand would be the finger up to the 1st knuckle.
The cats claws are so intertwined in the cats paw that this is the only way to do it. They walk the rest of their lives on feet with no toes. Declawed cats often give up using the litter box because of the pain they have following the procedure. It just isnt worth it, even to you, not to mention the cat. If it is ever lost it is helpless. Why not try learning to clip the cats nails.
It is easy and you can usually get them to cooperate. Get some good scratching toys for the cat. Many Vets will clip nails for free. I do my own cats when my daughter visits. She holds the cats and I clip. Do look into some websites that describe this procedure, and think hard before you do it.
Go to the ASPCA website and you'll find all of the information you need including their 800# and the schedules of the truck for your area. From what I remember they don't do declawing on their truck.
