The bad news is old schwarzenegger thinks he's too good to be bothered with animal issues:(
In Defense of Animals if a great group though, hope they go after him big time.

As I have mention before I just adopted a feral cat my neighbors left two years ago. I seldom noticed the cat. The reason is, my new cat was neutered, declawed and a female. She is a tuxedo weighing 7 .1 pounds and was forced to hide the majority of the time in fear for her life by other much larger strays. Anyone who imposes this cruel treatment on animals must have the first joint of all their fingers removed enabling them the ability to observe the effects. This is only a descriptive example to illustrate my feelings. We can only hope by setting good examples we can change the majority.

Hah! I Googled zip codes, and I discovered that US zip codes are made up by five digits, a hyphen and four more digits. US petitions will accept my signature now, because I just make up my own zip code according to the required format! Simple when you know how! (For the first line of the address I just type in the name of the house - any name, e.g., Oak Hill; The Pines; Rose Cottage.) I choose one of the states, and away we go!

Absolutely Robert, it's an amputation of a whole toe joint for cats, not just taking out the claw. When I volunteered for the Humane Society in Reno, Nevada, they regularly declawed and debarked dogs and cats. It is a despicable thing to do to an animal and the people who ask for this procedure to be done are utter morons!! The dogs were extremely confused at not being able to hear themselves barking and kept on and on trying to utter sounds. The little cats had such tightly bandaged feet and bled all the time. It makes me so mad when I think of it. What the hell's the matter with people and their ignorance????? Get a fricking teddybear why don't you?!
