I encourage kitten owners to schedule front-claw removal when the animals are spayed or neutered. And I recommend the same procedure, which is done under general anesthesia, for older cats if they are creating problems. Young cats usually recover in two or three days. Recovery is a little longer for cats more than 2 years old. Interested cat owners should talk with their veterinarians. Declawing cats can enhance the relationship between cats and their people.

I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings and made you think that I don’t appreciate what you do for cats. Nothing in my comments on the photo of the sad, declawed cat on your instagram page conveyed that you or your rescue condone declawing. I know that you and Animal League believe declawing is bad and wrong and that’s why I asked if you would use your voices for support instead of staying silent on this Cat Protection Bill.
You will be a BIG part of cat history if you help me with this important research and statistical study.
As you know, the Cat Protection Bill is on the table in New York so that’s the state I’m starting with now.
Listen folks. I know that most of you are on board with me with this cause and appreciate what I do and how I run things. But I also know that there are some you who think I could do things better or differently. And guess what. I’m all ears and open to any suggestions if it means saving …
“If declawing was animal abuse, veterinarians wouldn’t do it,” said a cat owner who just took the advise of her vet and declawed her 12 yr old cat because she had a baby on the way.
Declawing IS animal abuse and veterinarians in most of the world don’t do it because of that reason.

New York. May 4, 2016 President Obama has finally appointed a strong leader to the Supreme Court. “City the Kitty, although relatively small in stature, standing only about 16 inches tall, and very young, I believe he is the youngest Justice ever at only 7 years of age, is the most qualified candidate I have ever known,” said the President at the Confirmation Hearing. “He is extremely knowledgeable about our most pressing and important issue in North America today, cat toes.”
The unenlightened vets of the New York State Veterinary Medical Society (NYSVMS) have declared war on innocent cats. I found a memo that has officially started the battle over the bill in NY to ban declawing.
The NYSVMS isn’t hiding the fact that they don’t care about the welfare of ducks or cats. They are currently working hard to kill the bill in NY that would ban declawing and in 2013 they were the leader in killing a bill that would have stopped the inhumane force feeding of ducks for foie gras.
The same NY veterinary association that is trying to kill our NY bill to ban the inhumane procedure of declawing is having a tasting and tour of the Hudson Valley Foie Gras Farm.
I thought that veterinarians and vet techs cared about ALL animals and are supposed to be all about helping and healing them.
