This is a nice video of an interview with the lady who leads the battle against the declawing of cats in the USA. The image quality is poor but you don’t need great image quality. The words are all you need. They are revealing and all cat owners should see this video but very few have.
Dr Conrad has an insight into the problems. When I listened to it, four things stuck in my mind:
- Many vets mislead clients as to what declawing entails and
- Many clients regret that they declawed their cat when they find out what they have done.
- Twice and many declawed cats are relinquished than non-declawed cats.
- One vet said that Dr Conrad could not be a vet because she fought against declawing. He justified declawing by saying a cat’s claw could poke a child’s eye out! Yes, but how many eyes have been poked out by a cat’s claw and whose fault would it be anyway? He is the one who does not sound like a vet. He sounds like an idiot.
