There Is No New Way To Declaw Cats — 17 Comments

    • Thanks Jo, just needed to squash the story about the ‘new’ way of declawing, this article and the poster are doing the rounds now to stop it thank goodness

  1. Declawing is illegal in Australia. Why anyone would abuse a cat like this is beyond me. If you cannot cope with a but of scratching of your precious furniture, then do not get a cat.

      • A dreadful and cruel part of their culture. Hunting with packs of dogs was part of our culture but we got it banned and we will get declawing banned one day too, no matter how long it takes.

    • Declawing is illegal or considered extremely inhumane and rarely done in 39 countries now, I think Australia is like our England and your vets never declawed even when it was legal.
      It’s good to have you here Susan to help educate the Americans who think declawing is acceptable.

    • Hi Susan I’m in New Zealand. I dont think its totally illegal in Australia. They sometimes can still do it. Thats what I herald today. Thankfully Its illegal today, Well at least I think it is. Most of my Animals havent been declawed and Never will allow it to happen. It sickens me that this Happens in US & Canada & in other bits in the world. Nice to meet a fellow Neighbor in POC COmmunity 🙂

  2. Where do these cruel lies come from? Is it vets or techs spreading their poison trying to get more business by pretending to have discovered a new way to rob cats of their toe ends, or is it “owners” trying to convince themselves and others that they’re not subjecting their cat to a devastating unnecessary procedure? There will be those all too eager to believe, or make themselves believe, just so they can get their cat to the vet and have her declawed, then later they can shout loudly that they were misled, how could they possibly have known that their kitty’s toes would be hewn off when Mrs So and so down the block told them there is a new way that only “takes the nails and nail bed” – but they like the result anyway.
    I’m sick of all this cr*p, it’s legalised cruelty which people actually pay the perpetrator to commit I feel so sorry for the many people in the US who hate declawing, I wish their fellow countrymen and women would get the rose tinted glasses off and realise cats should NEVER have this disgusting procedure foisted on them in any way, shape or form. Loved the poster, it tells the story in pictures as always, another valuable one to share.

    • Its sick and stupid how people i.e Vets and whoever is gaining from declawing. I really wish and Hope in Canada and United states, and wherever else are still doing it. Its just Cruel and its just as bad as that situation happening with this Cats and kittens in US. I think it is anyway. I just feel so sick and angry over the whole thing. How would they like it, if we cut their hands and feet and not care?

    • Yes it smells of desperation to me, it seems that someone has started this rumour again just when the Paw Project vets are gathering more evidence to show what the outcome of declawing is, the greedy heartless vets don’t want to stop, they will do anything to convince people declawing isn’t cruel.

  3. Well lovely Article as always Ruth. I just still think its wrong to declaw/ or clip Nails. I take it like this. How would we like it if we did this to ourselves? We wouldn’t, like it as it would hurt it would be painful. We need our nails, especially if we are being attacked especially women. So I’m in agreement with you, and most people who visit here. I will continue to support that there needs a ban on all Declawing Worldwide. Its wrong, and its Cruelty. It doesn’t worry me if they Scratch on furniture, it is a worry if they do on Wallpaper etc, as being in a Rental Home, but i usually just fix it up by painting over it or putting Plaster on walls. I’m going to soon get some more Cat Scratchers. I just think its just greed to hurt all animals whether they a big or small. I say Shame on all that do this.

    • Thanks Kylee, you are so right, furniture and wallpaper can be replaced, cats toe ends can’t. Good idea to get some more cat scratchers, we have scratching posts and pads in every room for our cats.
