Here you have a very heartbreaking story about someone who is a true hero. This vet tech tried to do the right thing and she was fired.
I am a medium sized orange tabby who’s had a rough couple of months.
I was canned from my job at Friskies and then I got really sick with some sort of dizzying vestibular problem.
Then my mom was picked on by the very big and powerful veterinary organization, the AVMA, who accused us of cyber bullying them in the America’s Favorite Veterinarian contest.
I’m just trying to keep kitty paws healthy and happy by ending declawing. Why do they call me such horrible names and want to shun me?
What has the world come to when a kitty can’t use his fame to protect other kitties?
Here is a MAJOR study just published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA) You can read the whole thing but basically, in a nutshell, it shows that most veterinarians see debarking and earcropping as unnecessary procedures in veterinary medicine and NOW, finally, this study says that declawing should be looked at in the same way! It also says that there is clear evidence of pain
and postoperative complications with declawing.
Some unethical pro-declaw veterinarians promote amputating kitties toes to stop cat scratch fever or disease. These are the simple facts about this disease and according to all the modern thinking, educated, and humane veterinarians and human health experts, declawing should NEVER be done for any reason, including this cat scratch fever disease.
Here are many examples of those in the veterinary profession and some outside of it, who could truly help to end the inhumane procedure of declawing, but aren’t.
I am City the Kitty and I’m 100% against declawing. I’m here to announce that I do NOT condone REAL cyber bullying, harassing, threatening, or attacking anyone, not even veterinarians who declaw or who declaw kitties on ALL 4 paws. Of course I don’t, so why am I bringing this up?
I’ve decided to start bringing attention to a pitiful new trend in veterinary medicine that revolves around our cause to end declawing.
This is a horrific story about 3 kitties named Teeger, Abby, and Ryder, whose lives have been tragically ruined because of being declawed.
About a year ago I took up this important cause to help end declawing. Together, with the Paw Project and other devoted people and groups who care about the welfare of kitties, we have made great strides in educating others and creating a lot of awareness.
