Claws are an integral part of a cat's life. It is not our right to take them away. Declawing involves amputating the last joint in a cat's digit. The claw grows out of the bone and in order to remove the claw, the bone has to be amputated.

Look at your own finger. Imagine amputating the tip at the last joint. That is how declawing is performed. They call it onchyectomy (removing the nail) but the correct term should be phalangectomy (amputating the phalanges or "fingertips").

IF YOU THINK DECLAWING DOESN'T HURT...THINK AGAIN!!

Cats in the wild are meant to hide their pain. Showing pain makes them vulnerable to predators. Declawing is a very painful procedure.
After surgery, these cats are in excruciating pain. As soon as they learn to manage the pain they hide it. Don't be fooled if someone tells you their cat didn't feel any pain after being declawed.

DECLAWING IS AMPUTATION.

And, since it's an amputation of a digit, it can have long term repercussions. Yet many people don't think of it like this because they don't really know the entirety of what declawing entails.

Let's help to educate - not amputate. Please help us get the word out about declawing. Our cats give us unconditional love. And they need us to protect them. Help the world realize that declawing is inhumane. It is not an option!
