These are photos of cats taken at a veterinary hospital on the morning following declaw surgeries.
The small photos are thumbnails. Please click on them for larger images and captions.
In the second picture, particularly, it is clear from the cat's fearful posture that the cat is suffering badly.
The calico in the bloody cage was declawed because her owner's condo required it, and even though she had seen her older cat go through this and didn't want to do it, she chose to do it anyway rather than adopting an already declawed cat.
