I had a cat that'd been fixed since he was a kitten, and he still marked his territory around the house. Confused
I dont think they spray urine...

Yup. It's not always males either, one of my female cats does it. My rabbit does it too. xD

Fixing an animal only lowers the chance for them to stop spraying, but you cannot gurantee that they won't do it ;)

What do people thing of declawing cats? I think it's cruel and painful.

I don't know. I mean, if the claws are obviously too long for the cat to walk comfortably, then I would consider it. Other than that, I don't think it's that big of a deal to keep them declawed.
I don't know if cat's claws get so long like that, though.

Declawing is a surgery where they remove the bone from the cat's front paws. (Such as removing the first part of your finger.) And it's said to hurt the cat alot during surgery and after surgery, and that the cat won't be able to walk properly.

(I'm not talking about cutting the claws, I'm talking about surgery and amputation.)

I just don't want anyone doing this to their pet :(

Our two cats have been declawed, and they're perfectly fine- I assure you. They do pull their front paws away when I touch them, but occasionally they allow me to pet them or rub them for a VERY short amount of time - though they prefer their back paws massaged. They do not walk funny, their balance is fine, their paws don't bleed because of being declawed... In all these years, at their greatest and worst times, they have shown absolutely no pain, no problems, no NOTHING.

They are perfectly fine. Because of it, I believe that, if it is done correctly and carefully, declawing isn't an issue.

Also - as for the "The cat is also deprived of its primary means of defense, leaving it prey to predators if it ever escapes to the outdoors." quote... There's always consequences for EVERYTHING. If you keep a cat outside, then you're putting them at greater risk than the cats that are indoors. Even if they have claws, they're more likely to be killed in general - cars, other animals, getting trapped... etc. So claws or no claws - I don't see this to be a fit excuse.
