Cat Declawing in England, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland — 3 Comments

  1. The British penchant for worrying more about animals than about each other continues to amaze. My partner has a fully-clawed cat which never goes outdoors because of his illness, but I was shocked beyond words to see that this politically irrelevant issue has reached the level of NATIONAL LAW in the UK. What some soft-hearted flat-worlders call “mutilation” more sensible people call “protecting children, visitors, and furnishings.” A cat that is in no danger of fighting other cats and does not have to kill its own food does not need front claws, which simply enable it to attack people, climb all over the place, and destroy stuff. I suppose this is the bargain cat owners must make: the trade-off between safety and having a pet. In a country obsessed with “health and safety” regulations, it’s amazing that people are allowed to have pets at all.

      Sorry, but you have that wrong. We, Brits don’t worry more about animals than humans. We just like to treat animals in the same way we treat the human animal: us. What is wrong with that? It is less arrogant and more tolerant and decent. Also, it is not just the Brits who do this. Take any European country and millions of Americans too. We are all of the same opinion.

      Sorry, OMG, we are just on a completely different plane of thinking. People who hate declawing are way in advance of people who think declawing is alright. Someone like you won’t exist in 50 years. You will be a dinosaur. You are a dinosaur living in the modern world and you are out of place. And you are arrogant and personally, I despise you.

      We are talking about little furry domestic pets aren’t we and not wild tigers? My cats and other peoples cats I know, don’t attack people, destroy stuff etc….
      You are a very ignorant person OMG, had you bothered to do even the slightest research on cats claws you would see why they are essential to their health and fulfilment. Are you one of those thick idiots who think declawing means removing the claw as you would a person’s nail? If so you are completely wrong, the entire last toe joint is amputated, so declawing means TEN amputations which is extremely painful to the cat and disables him for life! A declawed cat can’t walk as a cat walks, can’t exercise, has difficulty balancing when jumping, he faces a lifetime of physical and mental problems from the cruel surgery. If you already knew that and still think declawing is acceptable then you are a cruel cold hearted excuse for a human being.
      Either way I agree with Michael, I despise you!
      As for worrying more about animals than each other, some of us have brains larger than the pea brain you obviously have, because we can and do care about other people as well as animals, we are not self important fools like you OMG…..why don’t you go and do something to help others rather than come here blathering on a subject you know nothing about.
      Declawing will soon be banned worldwide as the animal abuse it is!
