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. I want to let you all know how much I appreciate you. You all are family to me.
There is a post from a veterinarian on the AVMA’s facebook page that is causing a big uproar and it’s all about standards, ethics, and poor medical care.
The topic is non-anesthesia dental cleaning.
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!
He was a great man. A humanitarian, a civil rights activist, and an inspiring leader with integrity and honor.
I received this note from Leah and her spokescat Sartain. She is my hero.
I received this awesome note and wanted to share it with all of you.
My friends. Tomorrow is CATurday and I seriously need to just have some fun.
I am City the Kitty,
I am the enemy of evil. I am the ally of all cats.
I am the enemy because I protect kitties’ toes. I am the protector of paws.
