Signed! Thanks dear Lenicka

Signed everything. Hope everyone's well - as well as one can be when fighting These atrocities all over the world. I'm really quite sure that the only way to really combat all of this is to eliminate man. Definitely the source of all evil.
Guten Morgen ihr Lieben
UPDATE on petition
It was brought to my attention that we need to pick a target group such as a president of a particular country or the veterinarians, etc.
Please target all of your local, state, providential, and federal politicians as well as your local veterinarians and the AVMA.

Agree with you Barb !!
There are so much petitions against declawing that never got enough signature to make any impact.
In a desperate attempt to promote a US petition a made a C2NN but the petition is closing tomorrow and there are only 1044 signatures.
I think that declawing is so embedded in the mind of the US vets and citizens that it will be a long way to remove that.
Furniture and small children are the magic words in the most of the comments pro declawing.
Grazie Monika e Lenicka, purtroppo molte petizioni sono state chiuse, sono riuscita comunque a firmarne molte e ho notato che alcune hanno raggiunto un numero considerevole di firme. Io purtroppo non sono capace a condividerle se non tramite la mail di care 2, se qualcuno mi aiuta provo a condividerle con le mie amicizie. Grazie
Hi Monika, thanks for the friendly welcome. I haven't really been gone but I seem to get caught up with the list of Sau's petitions and a lot of others that come directly into my in-basket and in the evening I go to bed Feeling I haven't achieved much. But believe me, I'm in there somewhere, fighting away and opening my big mouth in protest. Still waiting to be banned for Insubordination.
Dear Monika I am glad to see you back!
Signed and shared all and sundry. I've been so busy with other petitions that I seem to have missed out on the ones here. So sorry that we've been out of touch. But, I assure you all, not out of mind. I do sign a lot of the same petitions on the PETA sites which land in my in-basket though.
Thank you Lenicka for bringing this topic back! I posted some declawing petitions lately on Sauwah's Cat thread...
took a while but i singed all petitions on this page., thank-you everyone for posting them.
Signed all that I could, dear Lenicka !!
This is SO WRONG !! Thank you for sharing the video
danke Lenicka für das so süsse Video
I see with sadness that the declawing petitions get so few signatures.
Declawing is one of my 'heart' subjects.
To coordinate this subject a bit more , I got the ownership of an declawing information and petition group.
I would be very pleased as you place there the declawing petitions and information also !!!
We must finally end this retarded surgery that take place in the US , Canada and other countries !!!

She hasn't changed the target yet anyway Lenicka!!!
Well , maybe for me the same Monika , to busy with other petitions .
Lets say , I missed you !
I know what you mean Monika , I hate it when I fill a petition field and on the end I see thats it's only US or UK or I already signed it.
It's a waste of time and the energy of the typing.
Hi Lenicka, Thanks for the info. I suppose it's only a few minutes we waste. But quite honestly I spend such a lot of time signing petitions that I always feel I don't want to waste any time but rather get on with it.
Actually I haven't been away but I was so inundated with other petitions that These seem to have fallen by the wayside. But not forgotten, believe me
Hi Monika K , nice to see you back !!!
You are right Monika , Care2 , Change.org , Avaaz and a few others let you know if you have signed already , but ForceChange and Animal petitions do not.
I once looked in the history of FC and saw that I signed 4 times one petition.
I contacted them and asked why they do not have the option what others have for double signing. They never answered ........
Keep signing and sharing These petitions. Unfortunately I'm not always sure which ones I've signed and I fill out the whole form only to get the info - at the very finish - that I've already signed this onw. The Care petitions are better there, they let me know at once that I've already been there.
I see every day a lot of stupid petitions but
is till now on top.
Making yourself the target of an anti declawing petition...
For the case that she made a mistake , I contacted her and give suggestions.
But I doubt , you must see that you forget the name and address of your target before sending , it's the most important part of a petition.
Make Declawing cats illegal in South Africa
Thank you Monika.
Yes Monika , you mention a very interesting question.
What moron came up first with this ridiculous idea and why.
I'm going search for that.
People who let this do , are the lowest of the lowest.
But vets who do this are criminals and I don't understand why the US and Canadian vets persist on it.
2 years ago the US vets voted against a ban on it. In spite of the disgust that vets in the rest of the world have for them.
And the more than hundred petitions that are going on.
Signed the latest and up-to-date. Who came up with this ridiculous idea anyway? I've never heard anything like it. Whoever it was Needs to get a taste of his own medicine.

Thank you Jan and Monika.

Nobody is listening.
Yes Carol, it must be banned!! In Europe its forbidden
Petition signed Jan
all signed this practise is so cruel, these poor cats do not have any form of defence, to protect themselves
Done, such brutality.
I'm up-to-date and spitting vengeance as I do every time I think about the cruel Treatment of These pets by so-called pet Lovers. If they don't want a cat to be a cat, they shouldn't have one. What do they do to their husbands or wives if they feel there's something about them they don't like. What do they have amputed there I ask myself.
Thanks Lenicka for the interesting facts in your comment !
If I am afraid that a cat ruins my furniture I am not a cat lover and renounce on having it as a companian animal. Declawing is animals cruelty .
'Make cat declawing illegal in New Jersey
Signed ~ thank you
The veterinary knowledge n the US is very high. A lot of vets I knows , go to congresses in the US and always they tell that they learned a lot.
18 years ago I was on a US forum for diabetic cats for information and knowledge because vets in Europe even didn't knows that cats could have diabetic too.
Then , how is it possible that the US is so backwards on the item declawing ?
The list of countries that prohibit this is long , the petitions we signed here many years now , are enormous.
So , where is the problem that it persist ?
I have 120 cats in my sanctuary. My less problem is that they ruin the furnitures. But they have a lots of scratch things.
When someone ask a vet for declawing , the vet first must say NO and then he must teach that person on what declawing really means and give advice about scratch furnitures for cats.
A vet knows the best that declawing = animal abuse.
Declawing is the inhumane procedure of removing the toes of domestic cats to stop them scratching around the house. This common operation is illegal in many cities across the U.S. and numerous countries around the world. Petition the government to ban this cruel procedure entirely.
Signed! Thanks Lenicka and Sauwah

We never declawed our two cats after adopting them.
Not a good idea
Thanks Monika, signed.
No Jan, I certainly wouldn't. That's what they have the home checks for to make sure that the cat - or dog - will not be maltreated. And declawing cats is cruelty at its utmost.
Signed the most recent one. Thanks for sharing.
Signed with anger. Post a comment.
"In my country , you and the vet would be sued for animal abuse. The vet would loose his license. I have a tip for you. If people ask for declawing , first let them see a video of such an operation and then sent them to a store to buy a cat from stone. They never loose hair and never scratch the furniture.
I have a cats shelter for more than 20 years and never , never someone ask for declawing.
People that ask for that are animal haters and you , who let this do , you are nothing less than criminals.
I hope America will wake up quick and will be the 26th country where it will be illegal.
Shame on you that you did not be the first country where it is illegal !!!
You should have fight against declawing as a rescue center , instead to promote declawing."
Declawing is NOT only remove the nails. It is cut of all the toes.
Would you adopt out a cat to people who will only adopt if the cat is declawed???????????????
I think, believe and hope that I've signed everything possible. What the hell do These People think they're on about "Declawing Cats", I mean what the hell is the purpose of such cruelty?

I'll never understand how this is legal
Up to date, great thanks.
This is a long battle indeed. I wonder how many of the declawing advocates would like to have their finger and toe nails pulled out.
Signed. My cat, Miss Kitty, was rescued from the streets. She had been declawed on her front claws. She had very little chance to defend herself. A friend found her hiding under her steps, and I gave her my home, literally. She's a dear. We have conversations, I have no idea what we're saying but she enjoys it. That's all the matters. She hasn't been outside since she adopted me over 4 years ago.

Bruce Tanski, Chief Executive Officer
Bruce Tanski Construction & Development, LLC
Dear Chief Executive Officer Tanski,
I am writing to ask that you please discontinue your requirement for tenants to declaw cats homed in any of your properties. This is a cruel, archaic procedure that causes suffering and pain, undesirable patterns and behaviour and has been recognized as such internationally. Declawing is illegal or restricted in over 20 countries, including the United Kingdom and Canada. Cities such as San Francisco, West Hollywood, and Norfolk, VA ban declawing — while Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Berkeley, Malibu and Santa Monica are evaluating similar legislation. The Humane Society of the U.S. and ASPCA oppose declawing. The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons rejects the operation, describing it as "mutilation."
Overwhelming evidence demonstrates declawing causes severe behavioral problems that often lead guardians to abandon their animals in overcrowded shelters; 33% of declawed cats begin post-procedure, according to a 2001 study in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medicine Association (JAVMA). National shelter surveys reveal that 70-80% of cats surrendered for offensive behavior are declawed. Declawed felines enter shelters with behavioral issues like biting or not using the litter box, claims shelter director William Lombardi of Gloucester County, New Jersey. For the estimated 70% of declawed cats who are euthanized, the surgery is a death sentence.
Moreover, declawing generates suffering and permanent disability. The invasive procedure amputates not only the claw, but also the entire last "knuckle" of a cat's toes. Veterinary experts recognize laser or scalpel declawing as among the most painful surgeries routinely performed.

Please reconsider this cruel policy and ban the declawing requirement for tenants' cats in your properties.
Thank you for taking the time to read this urgent appeal.

Declawing is not like a manicure. It's a serious surgery that involves 10 individual amputations—not just of the cats' nails but of the last digit of each toe as well.
Cats often experience extreme pain when they awaken from the surgery and often have difficulty walking. Declawing results in a gradual weakening of leg, shoulder, and back muscles. Because of impaired balance caused by the procedure, declawed cats have to relearn how to walk, much as a person would after losing his or her toes. After the surgery, the nails can grow back inside the paw, causing extreme pain unbeknownst to the cat's guardian.
Without claws, even house-trained cats might start to urinate and defecate outside the litterbox in an attempt to mark their territory. Declawed cats might become morose, reclusive, withdrawn, irritable, aggressive, and unpredictable. Many people think that declawed cats are safer around babies, but, in fact, the lack of claws (a cat's first line of defense) makes many cats feel so insecure that they tend to bite more often as a means of self-protection.
