I just re-watched The Paw Project (2013), a documentary against declawing. The documentary is pretty good. I watched it on Amazon. It is unfortunate that many cat owners do not realize the facts. Cat declawing is effectively cutting off the last bone of the cats "finger". And it is rarely effective, since subsequent behavior problems counteract the intent of the declaw procedure. Plus many cats (housecats and large cats like lions) have persistent pain the rest of their lives. Well, I didn't mean to get on the soapbox. The last part of the documentary shows they were able to ban cat declawing in some major cities in California. Then some vet group got a law passed in the capital to "ban the bans". What does it say about our society that such inhumane practices still persist?
