Petition: Ban Cat Declawing (Amputation) In the United States

Petition: Ban Cat Declawing (Amputation) In the United States

by Finn Frode, Denmark

Here’s another petition in need of your signature. I think the following very clearly explains, why declawing is animal cruelty.

Most people do not recognize that Declawing is an extremely painful procedure which eliminates the claws by amputating part of the toes. To understand the procedure better it is identical to cutting all of your fingers off at the top knuckle.

This cruel procedure creates weeks of painful healing and ultimately effects the cat’s behavior permanently. In addition, should the cat ever leave the home it renders them absolutely defenseless.

Thank you Finn, I’ve signed and shared the petition.
I hope it has better luck than the one I started, we had over 4,000 signatures and I was devastated to lose some and the comments too when the site closed down and although I sent what we could salvage of it to someone over there who said she could use it, I heard no more.
