He was an orange and white splotched kitty with a huge personality matched only by his massive purr. A love bug to everyone who came in and playful. He tolerated having ears and tail tugged by special needs children that came to visit and would purr and snuggle despite it all. He understood they just didn’t understand and that they just wanted love the same as he did. He was the heart of the shelter and the staff and we all had a special place for Magic.
Any veterinarian who does this (declawing) should be stripped of their doctorate, their practices should be shut down, massive fines need to be applied. Named and shamed, the owners especially, should be fined as well massive amounts of money and banned from ever owning another animal as long as they live .
They are disgraceful and pathetic and should be disgusted in themselves, the price these poor cats pay for the aesthetic pleasure that these owners apparently get is beyond unbalanced and completely unnecessary.
