cat nail ingrown?

We trim our cats nails every other month or so. They hate getting them trimmed and it is so hard
for us to hold them still. Yesterday we were looking at the cats nail and it looks like it is ingrown(middle nail)
I am not sure what to do, she is walking around, jumping, ect. I figured i would post this note to see
what other people might think. I am going to call this morning when the vet opens too.

Also is declawing a older cat a bad idea ??

Declawing an older cat is an awful idea...bad bad unless there is a medical condition like the one you mentioned above. I am the proud owner of a declawed cat; but this procedure was done when Abby was 4 months and I had the vet neuter him at the same time to avoid so much stress. I guess what I'm trying to say is that unless the older cat starts growing the claw into the skin, declawing isn't a good idea at all.

As to the ingrowth, it is very painful for a kitty to live like this.  When this happens the claw must be removed. In other words, the cat needs to be declawed but just that one claw.  Trust me, the only solution is to operate on the kitty and remove the claw. Poor thing, it must be in pain. Take her to the vet. I almost forgot. You're going to have to keep a close watch on her from now on as this may happen again with other claws.  According to what the vet says you might need to get her declaw completely to avoid this from reoccurring; but then you now the cat must never go outside in case they're outdoor.
