I believe declawing is inhumane and an unnecessary mutilation. This act is Illegal in many countries but not here in South Africa.
This is what you need to know:
Declawing is a serious surgery and is not like having a manicure done. A cat’s claw is close to a cats bone so in order to remove its claw, the whole last bone of your cats bone needs to be removed. Declawing is actually an amputation of the last joint of your cat's "toes".
Declawing cats is not harmless and they feel the pain long after the surgery. It can cause pain in the paw and back and also cause infection.
Stop Declawing in South Africa.
We call on the Parliament of South Africa to ban these inhumane acts and make it illegal for Vets to perform declawing on cats.
The Make Declawing cats illegal in South Africa petition to Parliament of the Republic of South Africa was written by Jayd Edwards and is in the category Animal Rights at GoPetition.
