Declawing a Oriental Shorthair is an intense operation known as onychectomy, performed using anesthesia, that removes the claw from each finger (from the first knuckle out) of the Oriental Shorthair’s forepaws. There’s a remote chance of death in the surgery, and a declawed Oriental Shorthair might have a slight risk of infection and long-term pain in his paws. This operation is not recommended for an adult Oriental Shorthair and is labeled an act of animal cruelty in some regions (as shown below).
