Legislators in New York are reported to be considering a ban on the common practice of declawing kittens.
Yup, we’re talking about the same erudite officials in Albany who gave themselves a standing ovation when they not only reaffirmed midterm abortion of unborn babies by dismemberment, but also approved of even more grisly abortions performed up to the moment of birth.
Off with their toes?
As cat lovers, we see a lot to like in a cat declawing ban. After all, while “declawing” may sound like a really good nail trimming, it is in reality elective amputation. Almost all cats come through the painful procedure ok, but there can be complications.
Declawing a cat is absolutely good for your furniture. You will have to decide whether having an important element of your kitty’s defenses removed is good for the cat…or have it decided for you by politicians.
An alternative point of view may sound familiar: Declawing is feline health care and should be left between cats and their veterinarians. In other words, humans should keep their grimy paws off of cats’ paws and get on with adding to the body count of 50 million since Roe v. Wade.
Abortion? Nobody asked me!
