Once again, it's a case of a lazy owner, not a bad cat, lol. Cats can be trained NOT to claw the furniture, crawl up the drapes, etc. it just takes time and persistence. I've never (nor would I) declaw a cat and I've never had a cat that has ruined anything of mine and I've lived with lots of cats over the years.
