Dear David, How did you overcome Goliath? Love, City, the little orange kitty.

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?

Clear evidence of pain and postoperative complications with declawing.

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.

Declawing is NOT recommended to protect the health of humans

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.

The Declawing List That They Don’t Want You To See

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.

Cyber Sniveling

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?

The Victim Card Game

I’ve decided to start bringing attention to a pitiful new trend in veterinary medicine that revolves around our cause to end declawing.

New Facebook page- City the Kitty Advocate for Animals

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.
