We await the declawing bans from New Jersey and New York State — 2 Comments

  1. We have to fight the idea that declawing encourages adoptions or keeps a cat in their home. It’s a 5 dollar nail clipper that solves the problem folks. I mean you can spend a lot more but you don’t really have to unless you like gadgets. Someone who dumps their pet because it snags the furniture or gave the kid or them a scratch is going to get rid of them for soiling or even less obnoxious behavior. My almost 12 week old babies ( they’re so sweet) use a scratching post like champs and it took so little time to teach them.
    Education on scratching surfaces. Most of them are not tall enough or sturdy enough. Some cats horizontal ones some prefer carpet, or sisal or cardboard.
    Debunking the myth that cats are reclusive or anti social and do not bond with their owners. Getting rid of the myth that you can’t train a cat. Yes you can if you understand their needs and use natural behaviors to get there.
    The need to declaw is built on myth and misunderstanding.

      I completely agree with this, ME. It is the false and tired argument that the vets wheel out in defence of their mass mutilations. It would make my life much better if one of these states banned declawing. It would restore my faith (to a certain extent) in the human race.
