|Declawing is actually illegal in most countries. I also show my cats, and in most associations, you cannot show a declawed cat. A declawed cat would be disqualified. Some associations allow declawed cats to show in the Household Pet class, but CFA will not allow any declawed cats to be shown.
I think most people don't research declawing. They don't realize what it all involves, how painful it is, and that it can sometimes lead to behavioral problems too. Too many vets also don't try to educate the owner, and ask if they want the cat declawed when they schedule the spay/neuter. Other people are too lazy to work with the cat on using a scratcher, and value their furniture more than the cat.
