UPDATE on petition

Ban the Cruel, Inhumane and Torturous Declawing of Cats Worldwide

'

Update #1 October 24, 2014

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Subject: Please ban the declawing requirement for tenants' cats in your properties

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.
http://www.squidoo.com/anti-declaw : Why Declawing Cats Is a Bad Idea

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
5 years ago
| info/news/petitions

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.
