Declawing Cats, No BUENO!
Co-Author: Nicole Lauren
What might sound like a small procedure to a new cat parent , like getting your nails trimmed, it’s alarming to know it’s actually the opposite. Declawing involves removing your cats bones at the top of their toes. The procedure has long term risks and problems for your fur baby. Cats that have been declawed are likely to have difficulty walking because they are forced to walk on their soft cartilage which is painful. The discomfort can lead them to naw or chew on their paws. They can also become more aggressive after this procedure.
Many states have banned declawing cats. Supporting that it is inhuman and unnecessary. N.Y was actually the first state to implement the law in the US. Majority of other countries have outlawed this procedure as well.
