I’m so excited because my friends at Alley Cat Allies just sent me their letters of support for the bill in NY that would BAN the inhumane procedure of amputating cat’s toes and claws, called declawing.
Alley Cat Allies is using their voice to be part of the solution to help end this cruel torture and unnecessary amputations that is done to 25-40% of cats in America. That’s around 2 million cats a year who are sentenced to this evil and horrific procedure. They are doing the right thing.
Please give them a big thank you on their facebook page [button href=”https://www.facebook.com/AlleyCatAllies/?fref=ts” color=”orange” newwindow=”yes”] Alley Cat Allies FB page[/button] and social media and send them donations! Remember Rhoda Hogan? Some of her bequest money is even being used to help cats in so many ways at Alley Cat Allies. Mrs Hogan wanted her money to help save cats and she wanted to end declawing and give it to organizations that support legislation to end declawing. I’m sure if she was still with us she would be so very proud of Alley Cat Allies! <3
Here is the very sad Rhoda Hogan story about her bequest to Cornell, if you haven’t read it. Mrs Hogan is my hero and I won’t give up on trying to help her [button href=”http://citythekitty.org/a-true-hero/” color=”pink” newwindow=”yes”] Rhoda Hogan’s Story[/button]
Here is Alley Cat Allies Call to Action too so if you live in New York, please help out ASAP! Time is running out and we must convince the legislators that this unnecessary cruelty to cats must end now!

Also, please send this story to Cornell Veterinary College, ASPCA [button href=”http://citythekitty.org/aspca-wont-support-a-bill-that-is-good-for-cats-but-bad-for-the-pocketbooks-of-vets-who-declaw-cats/” color=”red” newwindow=”yes”] ASPCA Declawing Position[/button] , and North Shore Animal League since they all are sitting on the sidelines in silence and aren’t supporting this important Cat Protection Bill. As you know the NYSVMS is working hard to stop our bill so we need ALL the support we can get and these 3 organizations that are ALL about ending animal cruelty and protecting the welfare of cats, aren’t giving their support for the bill.
Here is a story about all the shelters/rescues who ARE supporting our Cat Protection Bill [button href=”http://citythekitty.org/organizations-who-are-supporting-the-ny-cat-protection-bill/” color=”green” newwindow=”yes”] Supporters for the Cat Protection Bill[/button]
Here are Alley Cat Allies letters of support for the Cat Protection Bill!
Let’s get this bill passed and make sure no cat or kitten has to go through this inhumane and very cruel procedure anymore! Then we can start banning it in other states!
