There are two main reasons cat owners declaw their cats:
1.) Clawing items in the house.
Now although this will definately stop the problem of the cat destroying your belongings there are a number of behavior management and modification techniques that must be done before turning to declawing. All of which will cost you less then the actual declawing procedure it's self.
2.) Scratching people.
Cats who are declawed for this reason are often forced to resort to biting quicker due to their lack of claws. If your cat is scratching it is best for both of you to work with a trainer to figure out why and properly resolve the issue without declawing.
