Nail regrowth after declaw under the skin
You'll have to have a strong stomach if you love cats (or even like them) and decide to watch this horror video.
This is a declawed cat whose claws have regrown under the skin. This can happen. Also bone fragments can be left behind after the crude operation, and often are. All of it is unseen but the cat has to live with this without complaining. Cats don't.
The video maker calls the claw regrowth: "sequestered nail regrowth under skin years after declaw" - "sequestered" means hidden away out of sight but it not out of the mind of the cat.
How many declawed domestic cats suffer like this? What percentage live with this burden. Is it painful? If we add claw regrowth to bone fragments within the toe and remember that cats walk on their toes; common sense dictates that it is painful, quite possibly very painful. Sometimes it shows in a modified gait; a crippled cat if you like.
