This is an outdated, cruel barbaric practice that shouldn't still even be happening! It is not only a horrible procedure, but leaves a cat defenseless and if someone wants to own a cat but doesn't like the claws, they shouldn't have a cat. Period! Please stop this! If the cats could speak they would beg for your help!

It is PURE MUTATION. We rescued Mina Murray Harker love of Dracula and she was butchered when we got her. We searched many litters to find 1 she would use. U can c the way she walks that she is in pain. Can't jump down from lap to floor, uses a staggered step we have set up for her. BUTCHERS do this to innocent animals. Horrible human MONSTERS

Declawing is a horrifying, cruel form of torture to cats. It has been statistically proven to have long-term negative, horrible effects on the poor victims.

These beautiful animals were made with claws for a reason. Don’t like cat claws, don’t get a cat

I'm signing because it's beyond disgusting that you can acknowledge any Vet practice that declaws cats. It is a totally unnecessary procedure that cats should never go through. I live in a city that it is illegal to declaw but if I wasn't in a city that doesn't allow declawing, I would NEVER go to a Vet that declaws.
