A few weeks ago we rescued a pair of 2-3 week old kittens whose mother was run over. they are both males,tame and loving.our older cats accepted them and things are great except for their claws. how young can kittens have them removed and loose their jewels? i've never declawed cats before but these boys need it.

our vet said the best time to spay a cat is when they are at least 4mo. old. as for the claws i clip our kittens with pet clippers. just the tips.

Kittens are not supposed to wean til around 4 weeks, so give these little guys a little break here. I would ask a Vet about how soon to nip the particulars, but PLEASE don't have them declawed unless you are absolutely committed to having them as total INSIDE cats forever. If they are outside cats at all, being declawed is a death sentance for them.

You can trim their claws some with nail clippers, just don't cut too close into the quick. Hold the paw firmly and clip the ends of the claws off blount.

we never declawed ours , it can be a problem but they grow out of scratching, ours are outdoor farm cats they need their claws so i left them alone, i think 6 months s and they can be fixed , we just did ours.
