Declawing and CAT FRIENDLY Practices- A Study

2018 City the Kitty’s American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) CAT FRIENDLY Practice Declawing Study
Of the 156 Cat Friendly Practices in this study in Alabama, Ohio, Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Oklahoma, and Texas, 133 perform declaws and 23 don’t.
85% of the 156 Cat Friendly Practices in my study declaw cats.

A Declawing Survey of Michigan Veterinary Practices in West Michigan

I reached out to these 36 veterinary practices in Michigan to ask them if they were interested in helping us educate the public and their clients in their area about declawing and about the humane alternatives.
I received only 4 replies and none of them were interested in helping us.

I Stand Corrected

I made a mistake.

It was an honest mistake and wasn’t meant to deceive anyone.

A supporter that I trust, who has sent me many things over the years, sent me a video of a kitty who appeared to be declawed and was laying in a chair with a towel around his head and his feet in a bowl of water. His paws were wrapped in what appeared to be bandages but the cat wasn’t declawed. He was just sedated so that it could have its matted hair trimmed.
