Support Ending the Cruel Practice of Cat “Declawing”

Target: Lidna Rosencrans, President of One by One Cat Rescue

Goal: Praise cat rescue organization for aiding in the criminalization of declawing.

The One by One Cat Rescue in Pennsylvania requires potential adopters to agree to their anti-declawing policy before they commit to adopting a cat from the organization. This is a smaller part of a bigger endeavor to criminalize cat declawing in Pennsylvania, coming on the heels of New Jersey approving a bill to do the same and New York considering similar legislation.

This is excellent news and a big step towards outlawing the practice in even more states, possibly the entire country. Declawing is an extremely cruel and inhumane practice that not only hurts cats, but leads to toilet problems; chipped bone fragments from the surgery lead to tenderness in the paws, making cats avoid the litter box. Additionally, if the cat’s paws do not heal properly after the procedure, they can become badly infected.

One by One and Pennsylvania must be praised for their efforts in criminalizing this barbaric practice, protecting cats from amputation and encouraging more humane methods of keeping a cat’s scratching behavior in check. Sign this petition to thank the organization for helping to make declawing a crime.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Rosencrans,

Thank you for helping to aid in the criminalization of declawing cats. Your organization’s stipulation that adopters do not declaw is a step that sorely needs to be taken. While some states have been outlawing the practice or considering such measures, it has been disheartening to know that some places still allow the barbaric practice despite all scientific evidence proving its detriment to the well-being of cats.

Thank you for not only ensuring that potential owners do not subject their cats to this amputation, but for helping to get the practice outlawed. The future of cats everywhere is looking brighter thanks to this step.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    IF YOU CANNOT COPE WITH A CAT CLAWING YOUR FURNITURE THEN DONT GET A CAT, IF A CAT IS DECLAWED IT CANNOT SCATCH WHEN IT GOES TO THE TOILET, DECLAWING IS AN EVIL PAINFUL BARBARIC PRACTICE AND HAS TO BE BANNED, IF YOU LOVE YOUR CAT YOU WOULD NEVER TO SUCH EVIL AND VETS HAVE TO REFUSE TO DECLAW CATS.

  2. cats cannot scratch themselves when it itches – that is as important to animals as to humans!

  3. Veterinarians who perform this cruel procedure should have their licence removed!

    Declawing causes litter box issues later on in life.i foster cats, including diabetic cats and have read many instances on what declawing has done to cats.
