Cat owners! KEEP YOUR CAT'S TOES AND CLAWS ON THEIR PAWS! (Photo is of amputated cat toes and claws which is how declawing is performed)😾😾😾 Please tag a friend or two on this post so that we get more people to help with this important cat cause and so they will see this important, game changing study that came out yesterday and shows how declawing harms cats for their lifetime.😿
The link to the study is on my instagram bio! Let me know what you think!
Here are some of the findings in the study, "declawing increases the risk of long-term or persistent pain, manifesting as unwanted behaviors such as inappropriate elimination (soiling/urinating outside of the litter box) and aggression/biting. This is not only detrimental to the cat (pain is a major welfare issue and these behaviors are common reasons for relinquishment of cats to shelters), but also has health implications for their human companions, as cat bites can be serious."
"A declawed cat was also almost 3 times more likely to be diagnosed with back pain than a non-declawed cat (potentially due to shortening of the declawed limb and altered gait, and/or chronic pain at the site of the surgery causing compensatory weight shift to the pelvic limbs)."
Stop this cruelty, abuse, and torture that's done to 5000 cats a day in America. 😾😾😾#Pawsneedclaws
Any vet that declaws a cat is unethical, inhumane, and is harming a cat for life. They are a complete shame to the vet profession!!! 😾 #greed #unethical #veterinary
