You are concerned about the bleeding? What about the excruciating pain it has just experienced, and will continue to experience? That is probably one of the most inhumane procedures you a can perform on a pet .. bar none!
Declawing is not just trimming the nail .. Nor is declawing only the removal of a portion of a claw. Instead, it is the surgical amputation of the first joint of the cat's toes. Whether this procedure is accomplished with a scalpel, a guillotine-type cutter or a laser, it is major surgery, and not to be undertaken lightly.
If you have ever talked to an amputee .. THEY can fully exclaim that an amputation for no other reason than to preserve life, is just plain cruel.
That would be like removing all the your fingers at the knuckle. This just plainly disgusts me.
If you can get to a TSC store, you can purchase a product called Blood Stop. It is a powder that helps the blood to clot. If not, you can put a little dab of flour on each bleeding spot. It will help with the clotting. Be sure to bandage it in place to keep kitty from getting it off her paws. Don't wrap too tightly: you don't want to risk cutting off the circulation entirely, and cats have fragile bones in their toes that you wouldn't want to fracture.

If the claws still bleeding Monday, please call the vet. De clawing a cat is like having YOUR fingers amputated at the 1st joint. The cat is bleeding and in pain for what-your precious furniture? We have 6 cats-none is declawed-we just buy decent 2nd hand furniture and cover the couch & chair with colorful blankets to protect them from the cats. What you did to your cat is cruel and inhumane, & the least you could do is to get off the internet for now and 1st thing Monday, call your vet. Oh, that poor poor cat! There are lots of cats minus their claws in shelters just waiting for homes. Instead of mutilating your poor, suffering cat, why didn't you care enuff for it to either keep it and allow it to remain as your god created it, claws and all, or had the decency to find it another home instead of torturing it by having its claws amputated for no GOOD reason & adopting a cat who was already clawless! Please, don't ever torture another cat like you did to this one!

De-clawing a cat is a terrible thing to do. It doesn't take off the cat's nails, it takes off the whole end of the toe. I'm surprised that there are still vets who will do this. It's not a normal thing to do. It's just like cutting off each of your fingers at the first knuckle. It messes up the cat's balance and has to hurt horribly. Get vet attention for your cat. He should be on painkillers.
