Our little Piccolo has claws
that can be meaner then any shark's jaws.
My husband is very tall and took the brunt of most of her attacks
She would climb up his legs and back so she could sit on his shoulder.

It was time for her to go to the animal hospital
She was now almost six months old, time to be fixed
My husband and I decided to have her declawed as well.
Second thoughts troubled me, declawing seemed much too painful.

The spaying surgery went well, she got all her shots there that day.
But the claws YES, they did stay, they just clipped them way way down.
She is back home, playing like kittens do -- but much to her surprise,
the grip is not there and my husband's back is now safe from those nasty
