Apparently, that was just the 'committee'.  It still has to pass city council.

Final vote - November 13.

What's really encouraging is kids are growing up to understand how horrific this is. But we really don't want to have to wait that long...too many cats still being mutilated on a daily basis.

Here is the entire hearing at Denver City Council.  At 58 minutes the CVMA is questioned by a council member, and pretty much squirms bluffs and stumbles through the whole thing.

Dr Jennifer Conrad's testimony in the beginning is compelling.

I haven't finished watching it yet, got to get ready for work.

It's official!  Denver Colorado has banned the declawing of cats with the exception of when it may be medically necessary (for the CAT)
