SEBASTIAN GOES TO SEE SANTA CLAUS
Hi folks…My mom and dad took me to see Santa Claus because it’s almost Christmas. I thought I would like to share the picture of that happy day, with you all. You may remember I wrote my diary a while back:
…because I hoped it might stop some cats from being declawed like I was.
I was pleased to hear that it did. Some people read it who didn’t know how cruel declawing is and how badly it affects us cats and they said they will never do it again.
My story has a happy ending in a way because although I can never get my toe ends and claws put back on I still live with the kind mom who rescued me from the Shelter when the vet who looked after us cats there said I should be killed because no one would ever give me a home.
I have a nice vet now who comes out to see me and gives me a jab to make sure the pain in my joints is kept bearable. He said he never declaws cats, he tells people about scratching posts and trimming claws instead of crippling us.
I don’t understand why some vets pretend declawing doesn’t hurt cats for their whole lives and why they keep on doing it. Mom says it’s because it makes them a lot of money and she wishes it was banned like it is in a lot of other countries.
My mom and dad love me very much and I love them back and they say no matter what happens, my forever home is with them.
My mom doesn’t work in the Rescue Shelter any more as it broke her heart to see so many homeless cats there and even more when they had lived with people who had them declawed like me and then didn’t want them.
I am lucky she was there to save me.
Please everyone keep up the good work of telling people the truth about how cruel declawing is and saving as many cats claws as you can until the wonderful day when declawing is banned in the whole world.
Happy Christmas and a peaceful 2011.
