I live in a country, where toe amputation aka “declawing” was never thinkable or a part of our culture. When I was confronted the first time with this procedure, I really got shocked. What? They do this, although they are donating thousands of dollars to save a burned kitten? How is that possible?
Today is Flashback Friday and I’m in quite a reflective mood. That’s me in the middle with the cone of shame on. It’s from my overnight stay at the Emergency Veterinary Hospital when I came down with that scary vestibular disease.

My friends. Tomorrow is CATurday and I seriously need to just have some fun.
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’ve decided to start bringing attention to a pitiful new trend in veterinary medicine that revolves around our cause to end declawing.
