19 Photos of ‘Dangerous’ Cats Revealing Their Main Weapon – Claws

Cats are known for their sharp claws, which are not only essential for hunting and self-defense, but also for climbing and marking their territory. While some cat owners choose to have their pets declawed, it’s important to remember that removing a cat’s claws can cause significant pain and may have long-term physical and psychological effects.

In the wild, cats rely on their claws as their main weapon. They use them to hunt prey, defend themselves against predators, and climb trees to escape danger. Domestic cats may not face the same life-and-death situations as their wild counterparts, but their instincts remain the same.

The 19 photos in this collection showcase cats in all their clawed glory.
