Perfect and happy kittens
The definition of cruelty is 'an act done to cause pain or suffering'. Declawing is certainly that as it causes both. How can anyone take a perfect little kitten like our boyz Walter and Jozef innocently playing with their friend Tamuri in the photo above, and have them deliberately disabled?
Yet people in the USA and Canada regularly take kittens for just that, without a second thought.
To starve a kitten overnight ready to hand him over to strangers to be given an anesthetic to enable them to perform the amputation of their last toe joints, is beyond my comprehension.
To go back and collect their mutilated kittens and to pay for the abuse done to them is incredible to those of us who truly love cats and care about their welfare and happiness.
This supposed to be last resort procedure isn't that at all, it's a convenience procedure done by unfeeling vets on behalf of people who should be allowed nowhere near any cat, let alone have the pleasure and privilege of them sharing their home.
