Hello, everyone!
My name is Archibald and I turned three yesterday! I just found my forever home with a first timer. I had a rough start to life leaving me with scars from fighting, an ear infection, and a full declawing. I am lucky to be so loved now, but she's the lucky one. She gets to cuddle with me all day every day! As a first timer, I'm sure she'd love some advice.
Love,
Archibald:cat:

Hi Archibald! It is great to meet you. I am so happy you have found a safe, comfortable and loving home. I am sorry you are declawed on all four corners. My Vito is too and fortunately there are no issues relating to that.

Good on you for doing the toilet training. It didn't work for us. I do have a suggestion. It looks like clay litter in the bowl. You migh want to consider switching to worlds best it something safer for the drains incase some gets in the toilet.

I look forward to many more stories and pics.

Thanks a lot! Do you have any other cats that aren't declawed? In considering another cat, I've been wondering if this would be a disadvantage to Arch.

Yes, my kitten Odin is 5 months tomorrow and he is not declawed. I have not had any problems. No scratches on Vito, but there have been bite marks. You could always try nail covers or of course keeping nails trimmed short. I would not avoid a clawed cat because of Archie. I would imagine you would pick the new cat based on personality which is the important thing regardless of claw status.

Welcome! How wonderful your momma found you, the loving forever Archibald! If she hangs at the Lair she will better learn how to spoil and serve you in the customary sphynx fashion!
