Declawed Cats Dumped By Unthinking Owner

I feel any mutilation to any animal is in fact inhumane. It saddens me to know Corrupt America allows such mutilations on any human or animals for the sake of money.
What would happen should this be reversed and a doctor did this to their child? But we need to look at the bigger picture, what is or does the government teach these so called vets.doctors? any type clergymen?
Every thing that happens has been taught via the gov. (schools & church etc.) then our parents. The Christians fear the devil. In all honesty the devil comes from within not out side sources. If we have evil thoughts of doing harm to another human being(?) - that's the devil within us not the devil himself.
If we live with constant fear of dying then sooner rather than later we die; that's our own making not the devil's. In other words there is no such thing as a devil, our minds/thoughts are the devil & we create hell on earth via our thoughts & actions. If Christians so strongly believe in God then how can you also believe in the devil? The two just don't go together. It's like trying to mix oil & water....
I found two stray beautiful long haired cats dumped on the side of the road, both were males and they fought constantly.
I captured one and hoped to catch the other later on. I caught & kept the timid one. He had been declawed. This cat was such a poor sight. He looked so sad - like he was ready to give up.
By some tacky luck I ran into a little boy that saw me holding one of the cats. He said there was two of them. I said how did you know this? He said they used to be his & his mom's cats. I said so why did you two just dump them off where there was no where to keep warm or even find food?
Plus the fact they had been declawed where they can never fend for them selves or catch food to survive. The boy said that they too were homeless. I said there are many homes that would have taken your cats in forever or until you & mom get another place. He said they didn't know what to do. I said local & long distance news papers have all kinds of information concerning animals, there is always so many options to choose from rather then leave them out here with no where to go & absolutely no way to fend for themselves.
Death would have been an option rather than lengthy pain & suffering. Eventually I never did find the other cat (both declawed) & the one I kept ended up very sick & dying. I could tell many, many stories of people I have come in contact with not knowing any real information on taking care of animals. Some choose to learn, others don't have time or care to take the time. etc.
Here is a great but sad story:
