Can you imagine having your fingernails removed from the ends of your fingers? How incredibly painful this must be and how difficult it would be to do anything with your finges without these... not to mention they are there for protection. How is a cat to protect itself, or find food if, heaven forbid, it is left, abandonded or lost from its home once it has been declawed! It is nothing short of cruely to make humans lives easier.... if you don't want to cut nails, or have your furniture...

Declawing is amputating at the knuckle and cats walk on their toes so it is very painful.
Removal of their testicles is not painful and not used in everyday function. Try amputating the ball of your feet and heel and see how much you enjoy walking and running. Then get your tubes tied and see if that impacts your activities.

It's an atrocity that human beings can do this sort of thing to an animal! Unbelievable!

I just don't believe in it. I think it is wrong and should be stopped. Who gave these people the right to decide it was okay to do something like this? Obviously, people that only care about themselves for whatever warped reason that think this is okay. What is happening to this world... what's happening to compassion for ALL living things? JUST STOP THESE DEPLORABLE INHUMANE ACTS... WHO GIVES YOU THE RIGHT?

I think it is just really cruel, it DOES hurt them a lot! And it's against nature...Poor little animals! Did we not, do enough to hurt them already! Thank you for this opportunity! xO! Goodday;)

AS a cat person with 7 cats and more my whole life through, Why declaw? Cats are`t stupid, they only scratch when they know no better, or feel threatened1 or need to sharpen their claws... Normal behaviour we file and cut our naiils! train your cat! Spend time with your cat, and you will have no problems, handle your cat correctly and your cat will not scratch! or use it`s nails for any other reason than to climb a tree or play! Melindi Charle

I have a cat and I love her as if she was a human child. We share a bond like most pet owners share with their pets. Why put them so much pain? When there are MANY MANY MANY other ways to prevent them from scratching. Ways that are humane! Check out this site for "Kitty Caps" they are humane and wonderful and yeah, maybe Hershey (my cat) doesn't enjoy having me put them on her. But, she is in no pain what so ever during the "procedure".. All you do is put a bit of adhesive in the cap and put...

But, she is in no pain what so ever during the "procedure".. All you do is put a bit of adhesive in the cap and put the cap on her individual nail and VOLIA.. a safe and painless way to stop clawing or scratching. Cats don't even realize they are on. They act as normal as they do everyday but, with the exception that they can't claw anything! :)
