Ban Declawing in Washington, D.C. — 11 Comments

  1. It’s OK Michael, it said waiting to be moderated as it sometimes does, I know it’s not your fault and my comments will come on eventually.

    • It annoys me but computer software is not perfect. There are glitches. However, it is necessary because for every real comment I receive at least 10 are spam.

      • If I had a rant about spam there would be no more room left on this page – I’ll stick to lawns, it’s more practical 🙂

  2. Thanks for this article Michael, it’s already bringing in more signatures, names I recognise. Well done to the person who started the petition.
    If declawing gets banned in Washington DC it will be a huge step forward for the anti declaw movement and as you say it may have a domino effect.
    That man was rightly prosecuted for mangling those kittens toes, but many times vets leave cats toes in a dreadful state, they should be prosecuted too!
    We’ve heard awful stories, poor ‘Stella no feet’ for one who lost her paws because of a botched declaw op, stories all the time of cats developing deformed legs and feet years after the surgery, cats limping their entire lives from being declawed as kittens.
    How can it be right that vets MUST know what they are doing yet still legally do it?
    It’s just too HORRIBLE that it isn’t banned worldwide!

    • Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I love all petitions that have the goal of getting rid of declawing. By the way I have no idea why your comment was not published immediately. It appears to be a failure of the program that runs the comments.

  3. Some people left some dumbass comments on there about how it should be done by a pro so I gave them all apiece of my mind in the comments below.
