International Cat Care comes out against declawing
« on: May 26, 2017, 05:06:19 PM »
International Cat Cat has issued a statement taking the position that declawing is unethical mutilation

https://icatcare.org/declawing-cats

Quote
International Cat Care (iCatCare) and its veterinary division the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) consider the declawing of cats for anything other than genuine therapeutic medical reasons to be an act of mutilation, and to be unethical.

iCatCare and ISFM support the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) Code of Conduct in calling for legislation to be passed wherever possible to prohibit the performance of non-therapeutic surgical procedures, including declawing.

I wonder if I should have kept all these links to one thread?

I can't make up my mind about that.  I could gather them together all in one....or are they better left as individual threads?

For my Tweeting, it's better in separate ones.
