The Power of the People Through Petitions: Saving Cats — 7 Comments

  1. So true, Michael.

    The more petitions out there the better. Even if it doesn’t make an impact on lawmakers, by repeating them over and over these petitions do help to bombard people with the truth about declawing.

  2. That is good news! 20,000 on a petition is amazing.
    I too sign and share as many as I can, it’s easy enough to do even if a bit time consuming when dozens pour in from various places.
    The anti declaw one I started but sadly lost when the petition site went down a few years back, only reached just over 4,000. I wonder how many would sign one now that so much more has come to light about declawing. But looking back it was a wasted effort anyway because the AVMA and declawing vets don’t take the slightest bit of notice of any protests against their cruelty.

    • 4,000 was an awesome result but…declawing is so totally entrenched and there is so much at stake in terms of money that it will take a lot of work to get rid of it. There are many more webpages on declawing and banning it today than there were 5 years ago. Good sign.

  3. Yay – some good news.

    I have always felt petitions are worth signing because its very easy to do. You may as well. Because somebody somewhere is going to know about it i the end and even if it doesn’t cause change it plants the seed – because it makes many people’s opinions known.

    And in quite a few cases, usually smaller things like this example, the petitions do work because they are very localized. The do illustrate the force of opposing opinion.

    Also – people used to joke about the internet. They would say sarcastically “oh well if it involves the internet then it must be so” – suggesting in other words that the internet is not serious and you can’t rely on it.

    Of course we know that it can be decieving – but next time somebody disses the internet like that I will suggest they have fun never using it.

    The internet is the new and powerful tool of the people. IT provides ALL information and it allows people to connect and learn from eachother. One day it will be unheard of to talk it down like that.

    I just love it when somebody comes out with an internet comment – in some kind of superior tone like they are better than it. It’s truly a pleasure to wind these people up a bit from time to time.

    The internet is everything and nothing. It is, and it always will be a vast resrource and reflection of our society and knowledge.

    Petitions take all of 2 minutes to sign.

    I say sign them all – unless you really haven’t got 2 minutes to spare in which case fair enough.

    I know of many that worked. I remember a similar one in spain – a town – they wanted to kill the ferals – but tons of people signed against it and it was stopped. Very much the same as this one.

    It’s worth signing every petition if just one of them works. In my view.

    • Exacly marc i sign as much as i can as just so disguested with how animals and some people are treated. If it creates a change then its easy to do. If u think one person, plus ur friends on facebook around the whole world does huge change.

  4. thats just down the road a wee bit from me well actually 5 hrs drive. Yea did petition against for the cats. 🙂 Theres alot of great and wonderful people in New Zealand we are caring people for the animals. 🙂
