This question is very important because it can affect our decision on how we deal with this problem. If we do not know the cost of declawing a kitten, then we cannot make an intelligent judgment about whether or not this procedure is right for us and our kitten. The best thing to do in such a situation is to contact some cat rescue groups and ask them what they charge for declawing kittens (the answer may surprise you!).

So, you’ll have to call around until you find somebody who will help cut down your kitty’s claws without making him pay through the nose!
