I’m just wondering: Why hasn’t the U.S. banned declawing cats? The inhumane practice was once common and even accepted, but times are starting to change. There’s been a national debate on the subject, and most of us now understand what declawing really means—and how traumatic and barbaric it is for the cat. Thankfully, the once-popular practice is now on the decline. Many vets now even refuse to perform the unethical procedure.
But we need to do better. The U.S. needs to protect our nation’s cats and kittens and outright ban declawing, just like Brazil, England, France, Germany, New Zealand, Sweden and other progressive countries have done.
