And how did your cat express that it wasn't in pain? You do know that animals hide their pain very well to mask weakness from their predators, right?

Have you tried cutting off your fingers at the first joint to see if you are not in pain after 24 or 48 hours? What do you honestly think? Do you think cutting any limbs off an animal is not painful to them? Do you think animals don't have nerve endings or pain receptors?

Have you ever talked to an amputee about their phantom pain?

"Declawing is actually an amputation of the last joint of your cat's 'toes'. When you envision that, it becomes clear why declawing is not a humane act. It is a painful surgery, with a painful recovery period. And remember that during the time of recuperation from the surgery your cat would still have to use its feet to walk, jump, and scratch in its litter box regardless of the pain it is experiencing."
Give your head a shake and start thinking in reality to what you have done to your cat and remember that cats experience pain no different than you do. Close your eyes and try to imagine the pain of somebody cutting your finger tips off.
