Welcome back to another Getting To Know You post!
The blogger we are going to meet today has a heart of gold!
She has, on many occasions made my day with her thoughtfulness and kindness. I am blessed to call her friend.
Anna is currently married and has 2 step kids.
The blog is her work and she loves it.
She also loves reading, learning, writing, warm weather and vacations in beautiful places even though she rarely gets to go.
She also loves sports like hockey, baseball, and soccer.
Her blog should help with other things that you might want to know.
The post I share with you today shows what a kind heart Anna has towards all things!
Do stop in and show her some love!
When you hear what the effects are, you will think twice about declawing yourcat. This post is what you would hear if you did this. Please read before making your decision!!
Here is a list (straight from the magazine article in Modern Cat ) of problems that could happen to your cat or kitten when they are declawed:
- It is an amputation; it is not merely the removal of the claws. To declaw a cat, the veterinarian cuts off the last knuckles of a cats paw-cutting through bones, tendons, and nerves. In a person, it is equivalent to amputating each finger or toe at the last joint.
- Declaw surgery can be extremely painful procedure with associated health risks and complications such as infection.
- Declaw surgery can produce permanent lameness, pain, or arthritis.
- Declawing is the same mutilating procedure for house cats or big cats.
In the magazine they speak about a movie The Paw Project by veterinarian Jennifer Conrad. She also started a movement called pawproject.org. If you want to join the campaign just go to that site.
The movie is to open your eyes and tell and show people the crippling and painful effects of feline declawing. They want to abolish this all together and use other methods . The vet can clip their nails, there are nail covers if they are scratching furniture, and getting a scratching post will work. Also a cool trick I learned, putdouble sided tape on the areas you do not want to scratch. They do not like sticky things.
Please read up on this and do a thorough investigation into what will be happening with your cat. There are other options out there. You can also join the movement by going to pawproject.org.
Has you done this and had complications? Have you decided that that route was no good? Please let me hear your stories about your cats…. It doesn’t necessarily have to be about declawing….
