How do vets who routinely declaw cats, sleep at night? Do they go home to their families and family pets and forget about the cats they have deliberately mutilated that day?
Those cats they left to wake up in pain and shock from unnecessary cruel surgery, some crying and throwing themselves around, some hunching in the corner of their recovery cage in despair.
Those poor innocent cats whose lives those vets know they have ruined by the amputation of their toe ends. Ten (or even eighteen sometimes) amputations, not only to please clients who are too lazy to teach their cats to use a scratching post, but also to make money.
Are none of those vets religious? Do they not fear their ‘Judgement Day’ if Saint Peter is on duty at the Pearly Gates with their individual ‘book of life’ in his hands when they leave this world?
Surely every single one of those vets who declaw can’t think that only oblivion follows this life. But whether it does or it doesn’t, how can they live their lives whilst breaking their sworn oath to cause no animal to suffer? Declawing causes cats to suffer, there is no way anyone who has studied veterinary medicine can deny that.
What do those declaw vets think of their colleagues who refuse to declaw? Do they scorn them? Do they think they are foolish to pass up the opportunity to make easy dollars daily? When they instruct their staff to offer declawing when a client books their cat in for neutering, do they feel no remorse that they are encouraging that client to have their pet disabled?
What about when they ‘mistakenly’ declaw someone’s cat who didn’t agree to have it done along with neutering and yes it does happen, those vets are so desperate to declaw all cats that they simply apologise and convince the client it was better to have their cat declawed.
Why has no client ever taken their vet to court when this happens? I suppose they think the vet knows best and they don’t want to cause trouble and anyway the way the vet explained it, declawing was a good thing to do.
Some vets persuade clients by saying it’s better to have the neutering/declawing done under the same anaesthetic while the cat is young, than the cat to need declawing later.
NEED declawing? No cat NEEDS declawing!
I’m very glad to see The Paw Project is starting to have no declaw vets heading teams of anti declaw people in more cities now, education on this is steadily growing, the Paw Project video is being screened far and wide.
Let’s hope that the conscience of vets who are still declawing (and there are many) begins to prick and let’s hope they realise they only have one chance in life, there could be retribution for sinning on this earth.
Declawing cats is a sin. Saint Peter could be waiting with their ‘book of life’. I hope he is!
