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.
June 28, 2017 Over the last few years that we’ve been working on this cause to end declawing, we’ve been blocked by people and organizations for simply trying to help save kitties from having their toes and claws amputated. Here are the ones that blocked us on Twitter. Here are the reasons we […]
NOMV supporters are trying to destroy our important mission to protect innocent cats from this cruel, inhumane, and barbaric amputation procedure by harassing us and bullying us and by accusing us of being a bully.
We are all about educating and shining light on the injustice of declawing. That’s it. We always take the high road and ask our supporters to do the same.
So the facts are that NOMV supporters who are attacking us are the cyber bullies, not us.
On October 30, 2020, GoDaddy, City the Kitty nonprofit’s website hosting company, sent them a DMCA complaint alleging that copyright infringement is taking place on CitytheKitty.org.
The complaint was from the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) who alleged that the use of their declawing information and logo was an infringement of AAHA’s rights.
American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) Confirmed That Declawing Is Their Dirty Little Secret
Declawing is a dirty little secret to which the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) gives a nod and a wink.
AAFP doesn’t want you airing their dirty little secret because it shows how hypocritical they are.
AAFP thinks they’re authorities on what’s best for cats but when it comes to declawing, they’d rather throw cats under the bus than lose their precious membership fees.
“First, let us reflect on the fact that the US is one of the few remaining modern countries that still allows this practice. It has actually been outlawed in most other countries, because of the physical and psychological effects it has on the animal. In most European countries, and Australia, you would actually lose your license to practice vet medicine if you were to perform this surgery, where it is uniformly viewed as unethical and inhumane.
November 5, 2017 the Denver City Council unanimously passed the anti-declaw bill and then on November 13, 2017 the City Council unanimously approved the anti-declawing ordinance. Declawing is illegal in the city of Denver!
The Colorado Veterinary Medical Association is the only organization that fought to stop this bill so their vets can keep declawing cats.
My team of researchers did a survey of vet practices in the city of Denver after the Denver City Council voted 11-0 to ban declawing. I wanted to see how the vet practices in Denver address declawing and if word had gotten out that declawing was going to be illegal.
My researchers posed as cat owners who were checking on a price to get their cat declawed. This research was conducted from Nov. 7-9, 2017.
The researcher said they were concerned about reading things online about how declawing is bad so they asked the employee if their vets are skilled at them and is is ok long term for a cat. The employee at this AAFP CAT FRIENDLY practice said, “We do declaws at least a couple a week.” They said that the younger the cat the better and it’s best to do the declaw when they are a kitten.
The researcher asked why their declaw procedure is “humane.” The employee said because, “We do it the correct way, the way it is supposed to be done.” They use a scalpel to do the declaws.
Maybe all of you can help me inspire St Hubert’s to support this important cat protection bill (without any bad amendments), the way that North Shore Animal League did for the bill in NY, without any amendments:
Please let St Hubert’s know how much you appreciate all they’ve done to re-home so many cats and kittens, as well as TNR programs for community cats, and we know that they are against cat declawing (it’s in their Positions Statement) … so why won’t they support the anti-declaw bill that was passed by the NJ State Full Assembly?
Story published in 2017. Here is a sad story about a cat owner that was deceived by her declawing AVMA veterinarian at a cat clinic in Central Michigan. Our researchers looked into how this vet is currently addressing declawing and they found this. Their receptionist says that this vet uses the laser and says, “it […]
