My dog says that if you love cats, or animals in general, he hopes you'll sign the petition to stop the practice of declawing cats.
Declawing is a terribly cruel, and unnecessary, surgical procedure where the vet amputates the last joint on each of a cat's toes. It is not a toenail that is being plucked, it is a bone that is being cut into and the last digit of a cat's toe that is cut off. Each and every toe has the tip cut off—bones, flesh, and all. Does this sound painless to you? It sure doesn't to me!
There are plenty of alternatives to having your cat declawed, which simply require a little effort on your part. Declawing may seem like the easy solution to stop an overzealous scratcher, but it is quite simply the cruel solution.
