We Lost A Big Battle Today But We Must Never Give Up

The NYSVMS, Long Island Veterinary Medical Association, and other NY veterinary associations successfully stopped our bill. Some of the Senators had some “concerns” about our cat protection bill and obviously believed the NYSVMS’s disgusting propaganda about declawing.

The Point of the Declawing Cartoon

(From Forbes) My friends, many of you are writing me about this cartoon that is circulating on the internet. Just to clear up any confusion, here is the rest of the story. I reached out to this cartoonist, Kirk Anderson, and asked him if I could get some insight from him about his cartoon.   Here is what he said, …

Imagine A World Where Declawing Doesn’t Exist

Who knew when I was born that I would spend my life trying to undo an egregious wrong?
Who knew that when I met my mom, that we would embark on a fight that would consume our lives protecting others’ lives?

Dear Beth Stern, We Are On The Same Side

Dear Beth,

I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings and made you think that I don’t appreciate what you do for cats.

Those who supported the NY bill to ban declawing and those who were silent

ALL HANDS ON DECK! Silence = Suffering

Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much. I need your help my friends. Share this post with your friends, family, and co-workers and ask them to help us help kitties from going through what these two had to. Many of you are writing me asking me why certain non-profit animal organizations that you donate …

NYSVMS 2015 – “We Scored a Direct Hit”, “We Scored A Major Win For The Profession.”

They’ve even spent a ton of money hiring lobbyists to propagate untruths. They must be spending over $10,000/ month to protect their right to mutilate cat paws! Imagine if they spent that money on helping cats through spay/neuter programs or adoptions!
