Declawing Hippo

Hippo the kitty, is getting declawed today. So sad. Yes, for Christmas, she's getting her toes amputated.

Why declaw her?

Well, for one thing, she's terrified of the outdoors so she never goes out. Furthermore, aside from batting lazily at pieces of paper while lying on her back, she doesn't have much of a hunting instinct either. However, she still feels the need to sharpen her claws and I'm afraid our couch has really suffered due to this.

So...I'm having a hard time concentrating at work because I'm worried she won't wake up after the surgery. That's a risk with kitties going under.
