Also please send a polite email to ISFM/ and ask them to not license their CAT FRIENDLY name to AAFP as long as AAFP continues to accredit declawing practices as CAT FRIENDLY.

Dear American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP),

We, the undersigned, ask you (AAFP) to no longer allow declawing in your "Cat Friendly" Practices. How can you call a practice "cat friendly" if that practice engages in an inhumane, painful and punitive surgery that has absolutely no benefit to the cats?

Isn't that the opposite of "CAT FRIENDLY?"

Also why are you trying to hide the awful truth about declawing by hiding and deleting educational declawing comments on your facebook and Instagram pages? More about how declawing is AAFP's dirty little secret in this story.

AAFP's Dirty Little Secret And More


Declawing is the amputation of a cat's last toe bone. It is performed routinely in the majority of AAFP Cat Friendly Practices across the country despite your position statement against it and despite it having absolutely no benefit to the cat.

Declawing is below the standard of care.

Cats deserve better.

It's time for you to be strong. We will celebrate your bravery in leading the way to a better world for cats.

Here is our 2018 survey of 156 CAT FRIENDLY Practices including the CAT FRIENDLY PRACTICE where the 2018 President works. The results of our survey showed that 85% of the CFP's declaw cats. It also showed how many of their CFP's suggested a declaw with a spay/neuter procedure and many declaw cats on all four paws.

Also please stop allowing your Cat Friendly declawing vets to lie about how declawing is performed and stop allowing them to promote declawing! Here is one of the many sad examples -

 More about the 2017 President of AAFP and how the practice she works at addresses declawing-
