To Ban Declawing in Canada

Hello Everyone,

I kindly ask where ever you are, who ever you are to please sign this petition & help end declawing in Canada.

Declawing is banned in 38 countries.

The first thing I want you to do is look at your hand. Take a look at your knuckles & imagine if you had from the knuckle up amputated ( cut off ) and imagine how your life would change.

So let me give you a break down of the procedure. Most owners only have the front claws removed. A lot of breeders have all four ( front/back) removed.

Take a look at your hands. See your knuckles? Well imagine losing from the knuckle up. How well would you be able to function? Imagine having to walk on the stubs of your fingers.

Most cats appear to be happy when you pick them up from the vet because they are on pain killers for days. Don’t believe those youtube videos of a cat who has recovered from a declaw surgery and is jumping around for joy.

The surgery is usually performed with an instrument, which looks like nail clippers. Some clinics do have lasers in which are used but really there is no difference. Perhaps less bleeding with lasers but that’s about it.

So you are paying to disable your cat. How can you do this to someone you love?

I know this article is long but it gives you an insight to the reality behind this act of cruelty.

Canada needs to be the 39th country who bans this horrific procedure.
