Declawing is an understatement, because in order to remove a cat's claws, the first joints of each toe are actually amputated. It is a very painful elective surgery that could take weeks of recovery and effects walking or scratching in their litter box.

SN&S!! It should be banned worldwide. It's sickening to see a cat recovering from this surgery. I'm so fortunate that no Vet I've ever worked with has performed this totally elective procedure.

People who don't know enough about cats to understand how vital a cat's claws are to it's well being, shouldn't be allowed to have a cat! If only that could be done!

I've attempted to note this link twice, but it hasn't worked. No indication of my noting it either on this page or my news page although I received 4 credits for it.

This is such a cruel and barbaric thing to do to a cat!! Declawing often causes behavioral problems,such as biting and litter box avoidance.Without claws,cats cannot climb, cannot defend thsemselves & are made to live a life unnatural to them. It becomes more horrific when they are abandoned and must try to survive on the streets declawed.Veterinarians are supposed to care for animals, not mutilate them for profit.This vile procedure should be banned worlwide!!!!
