The College of Veterinarians of British Columbia has become the second province in Canada to ban its members from declawing cats for non-therapeutic reasons.

While the college acknowledged their may be medical issues that may necessitate partial or full digit amputation, it says elective declawing, also known as onychectomy, is not an appropriate means of dealing with feline behaviour issues like scratching furniture.

“No medical conditions or environmental circumstances of the cat owner justify the declawing of domestic cats,” the CVBC said.

"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog." Edward Hoagland
"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."
