TICA’s guide to the Ragdoll breed explains “They are gentle cats, and usually play without extending their claws.”

Here’s a video taken just minutes ago of Colby enjoying his scratching post.

This video is in response to a self-described cat expert who insisted in a comment that because a video of mine showed Colby sliding all over a leather ottoman as a kitten, that he MUST have been declawed. I would never mutilate a cat by declawing (especially this expensive, sweet, docile, purebred cat.)

My video was posted on the Cheezburger channel here:

and more recently on the icanhascheezburger site:

The following are the offensive YouTube comments I’m referring to:

If it’s not declawed, why isn’t it holding on the ottoman when it’s jumping on it? With all due respect, I don’t believe you. I’ve had cats all my life and I know very well what they do when they play, including kittens – grabbing with their claws onto that expensive looking? furniture is the first thing they would do.

ukevergil- I share your disgust for declawing, but as I’ve mentioned previously, this? cat is NOT declawed. He is simply young, energetic and clumsy. It’s a shame you can’t enjoy the antics of a cute kitten without assuming the worst.

Looks like it’s declawed. What a barbaric, disgusting practice. Not funny video? at all.
