The Paw Project Treats Cats Injured By Declawing


Offbeat  (tags: animals, environment, protection, suffering )

Declawing is an amputation of the last bone in the cat's paw; not just a fancy manicure.

This hideous procedure should be outlawed! I'm happy to say that I have steadfastly refused to ever nurse in attendence at one of these surgeries. Fortunately, all my vets have agreed.

If you want to declaw your cat, first you declaw your own knuckles to see how that feels!

One of the worst things you can do to a cat is this. Disgusting and despicable.

Such stupid malice show buy humans. If you are more concerned about you stuff than your cat you have a problem and should seek help immediately

It is horrible and should never be an option. Anyone that does not know about this procedure needs to be educated.

Declawing should be totally illegal! Sad that it's still being done :(

In Germany, it is illegal.
But I am surprised that people are against declawing, yet it is totally OK to cut off your catīs testicles/rip out her uterus instead of just cutting his spermatic cords/ her fallopian tubes.

Out of all the cats I have owned, I did this to my first two in ignorance of what it entailed. The second declawing was terrible -blood, the inability to walk afterwards, popped stitched. I will NEVER do that to any cat cat I ever own again.

I cant imagine what a painful thing this must be for a cat Its bad enough if you split your nail too far down
If people dont want cats to climb and scratch which is their natural behaviour then dont have one Its taking away their natural defences

Noted thanks

This should be totally illegal throughout the U.S.. Any vet that would do this to an animal is just plain abusive.

Declawing should be outlawed in all 50 states.

Declawing should be banned. Anyone who wants to mutilate a cat should not have one.

I agree with most. Don't declaw your cat. That is abuse to the max. Walk away from any Vet who declaws cats, because that vet is in the business for the money and not for the love of animals.
