Declawing is like Infant Genital Mutilation (circumcision)

by Poochu (India)

Declawing is equivalent to Infant Genital Mutilation a.k.a “circumcision” without medical sanction.

If there was a valid reason for every declawing, then there would be a valid reason for every religious endorsed infant genital mutilation.

Humans never agree or support declawing, only self centred Men and Women who care more about their carpets and furnitures agree for such feline limb mutilation.

If an Infant was to be compulsorily circumcised just to please a prepuce loving God or Goddess without a medical necessity, then I denounce such inhuman practices.

And I similarly denounce Declawing as an inhuman way to enslave a free born living feline into a cripple and an inhuman’s dependent.

“Prepuce” = technical term for foreskin.

May 12, 2011 Circumcision and Declawing are both Traumatic and Unnecessary.
by: Poochu

I must mention, that when people can understand a condition like tonsilitis is seen repeatedly in a person, then upon medical opinion, tonsilectomy can be the solution, and not otherwise.

When appendicitis is to be treated, the only solution is “appendectomy”, if thats the word, else the patient’s mortality is at risk due to rupture.

Circumcision is to be performed upon certain conditions like phimosis or paraphimosis or as the concerned Surgeon diagnoses and opts that it is the only and best solution for certain medical conditions affecting the male’s you know what and not to be equated with cosmetic surgery or religious necessity.

Infant Female Circumcision is nothing but paedophilia.

Why not…stop keeping a kitten and cat as a pet, if a person cannot regularly clip and trim its claw and prefers “Declawing”.

Declawing and Circumcision are nothing but a sadistic and demonic way of inflicting permanent trauma on a Kitten/Cat and Child respectively.

May 09, 2011 …Why…?
by: Poochu

I do agree that declawing cripples the kitten or cat for life, and I strongly protest such demonic means towards having a scratch-free pet.

I am born natural, and have seen my childhood friends suffer as were unnecessarily circumcised by their ignorant parents just because of a religious sanction and compulsion, without any medical need.

I have even witnessed that Obs&Gynecs, have performed caesarean operations on women, who never really required this and could have delivered their patients the natural way.


To make more money.

May 07, 2011 Circumcision is not quite the same as Declawing
by: Anonymous Amputees

While both circumcision and declawing can be considered mutilation, I have never heard of any male or female trying to pick up and hole things with their genitals. Cats on the other hand, have to walk on the hands that were mutilated. They have to use bloody finger stumps in the litterbox immediately after surgery. They also have to use their stumps for play.

Circumcision is not crippling whereas declawing is. Granted, they both hurt, but the circumcision wound heals, and the pain goes away. Just ask a circumcised man.

Declawing causes a lifetime of pain and deformity to the cat, both his feet and the rest of his body. He has to walk on his wrists instead of his toes, because 1/3 of them are gone. This causes arthritic, stress, pain, and more.

I don’t think there is very much comparison between the two.

Medical literature indicates that brushing your teeth after every meal reduces the risk of oral diseases as well as being the most favoured person for Osculation” in town. Chewing on Tobbacco products leads to “oral cancer”.

Good that you were not de-teethed or de-tongued during infancy, based on this medical literature’s facts.

compulsory Circumcision is definetly not recommended to any infants of either sex or race or species and neither is “Declawing” of Kittens.

Never heard of Cats and Dogs being circumcised, did you??

circumcision(without medical sanction) is a permanent surgical procedure to mutilate a healthy infant’s genitals, who would naturally learn to maintain his personal hygiene, like you learnt to wash and wipe your behind after the poo-poo.

Medical literature indicates that circumcision reduces risk of disease transmission, as well as the risk of some cancer. This evidence is clear and not difficult to obtain.

Aug 22, 2010 Declawing is Sanctioned Violence
by: Anonymous

Thanks for posting this. I recently read an interview with Sister Helen Prejean (whose story is told in the film “Dead Man Walking”) which made me realize that declawing also has certain things in common with the death penalty. Both use violence as the purported “best” or “only” solution to a problem, and both are carried out shrouded in secrecy and hidden well away from the public.

Aug 15, 2010 Poochu I agree
by: Ruth

If we still lived by the laws of the Bible ‘an eye for an eye,a tooth for a tooth,a life for a life’ we could add ‘ten painful amputations for ten painful amputations’
If we still had those laws we wouldn’t have the evil,cruelty and corruption we have in this world now would we !
I do think some people are becoming so much more cruel, power and money crazy and selfish that one day they will do so much harm they will wipe out the human race and the world will return as it started, populated only by animals.

Aug 14, 2010 Female Genital Mutilation is Paedophilia.
by: Poochu

Dear Leah,
I must clarify that Female Genital Mutilation is Paedophilia, and must be condemned globally.

Declawing is Man’s Cruelty exhibited on innocent Cats and such offenders must be Jailed with an exorbitant fine.

The arresting officer(a cat lover) must be given exclusive permission to use special multiple finger cuffs on the “declawer” and dragging him to his solitary confining cell wringing his ligaments and tendons in the process.

Aug 11, 2010 Lovely to hear from you again
by: Leah

Hi Poochu

I’m so glad you have joined us I totally agree with you however far worse is female genital mutilation (I don’t know to which you refer; male or female)

Whichever de-clawing is equally abhorrent.

I look forward to reading your comments again.

Aug 11, 2010 Good
by: Rose

Poochu that is a really good comparison in that surgery should not be forced on any living creature who doesn’t agree to it.
Either babies or cats,only neccesary procedures should be done or ones that are to enhance their quality of life and keep them healthy,such as neutering(cats not babies)
I too love your sayings and look forward to hearing more from you.

Poochu, you are enlightened and one of us. It is nice to know that we have friends in India. Thanks for the comment and article.

Aug 11, 2010 Thank you Poochu
by: Ruth

A brilliant article thank you Poochu.
I don’t know much about circumcision and don’t agree with it unless it’s for medical reasons, but I don’t think it causes lifelong pain or mar the ability to use the part it’s taken from.
Oh dear, no ladylike way of saying that is there lol
So to me declawing is worse than circumcision as it amputates essential parts which the cat needs for many things such as walking, grooming, exercise, self defence etc.
I do love your quotes, today’s is wonderful
‘Keep the flame of goodness ever burning bright to ward of the darkness of evil surrounding us’
I hope it inspires me or someone else to write another article.

Aug 11, 2010 Comparisons
by: Barbara

Declawing and Circumcision are alike in that they are both surgical interferences, and frankly I can’t see any reason for either unless of dire medical necessity. Tradition or religion should not be allowed to dictate that either of these procedures are inflicted on innocent creatures for convenience.
Having said that, I think that human circumcision is probably carried out in a more controlled way than declawing which seems to be a matter of pure choice to the keeper of the cat, profit for whichever veterinarian is chosen to perform the amputation and sheer bloody bad luck for the cat, being born in a country so outdated in it’s animal welfare laws and having the misfortune to end up in the home of a cat abuser.

Poochu I just love this comment “Claws are not Birth Defect and neither are Prepuce”

Aug 11, 2010 Declawing is not like cutting Umbilical cord.
by: Poochu

Dear Michael,
My views may have sounded a bit obscene to the “Ladies”, I am sorry for that.

But to compare declawing with cutting the umbilical cord is not logical.

To compare “declawing” with infant genital mutilation(without a medical reason) a.k.a
“compulsory circumcision” is proper and valid.

To maime a Cat for a pet caretaker’s selfish reasons is to be abhorred with the strongest phrase word available, and I will never be ashamed for such.

Only when enlightened souls like yourself with a mission to educate and eradicate illogical customs and rituals are available will this planet survive.

Keep the flame of goodness ever burning bright to ward of the darkness of evil surrounding us.

Aug 10, 2010 Interesting
by: Michael

Hi Poochu, this is a really interesting comparison and I am sure you will get some comments! There are indeed similarities. Both circumcision and declawing are usually done for the benefit of the adult parent or cat caretaker and not for the benefit of the child or cat.

I think though that declawing is worse than cicrumcision as there is no medical reason for declawing but there may, arguably be some benefit to circumcision.

Wikipedia says that “prepuce” is foreskin. Sorry ladies this is getting a bit near the….
