successful outcome for Raven.



Raven - a rescue cat nobody wanted to keep. Antisocial, would bite you when she was hungry, attacked other cats, did not run or play. 7 years old at the time of the declaw salvage surgery. Now lives in home where she can run and play again. She still bites when she gets scared but is much better with humans.
