Declawed Cats Do Not Stay In The Home-Facts & Figures

Declawed cats do not stay in the home, because they develop complications that are costly and unwanted such as litter box aversion, re-surgery, biting, and life-long medications.

Fact: A calculation based on the aforementioned studies suggests that as many as 2.1 to 3 million cats in the U.S. develop litter box aversion after declawing, and as many as 2.8 to 4 million may have increased biting. http://www.citythekitty.com/declawing-cats-myths-vs-facts/

This page https://www.facebook.com/pg/BetrayedDeclawedCats/photos/?tab=albums was started in June 2016 and there are 3,112+ unwanted declawed cats on Facebook alone. The American Veterinary Medical Association refuses to acknowledge the facts and figures because declawing is a billion dollar industry. Their journals and policies are not accurate and they refuse to ban this horrific procedure that many countries consider a felony crime.

DECLAWED CATS FOUND OUTSIDE-1,062
DECLAWED CATS UNWANTED BY PET PARENT(S)-1,187-Many do not give a reason, many use the ‘allergy excuse’
DECLAWED CATS IN SHELTERS/RESCUES-610
DECLAWED CATS WITH COMPLICATIONS-71-This does not include the sub-album of Paw Project cats who needed re-surgery on their paws. Litter box aversion is caused by cats who have bone pieces and/or claw re-growth inside their paw pads which takes years to grow.
DIABETIC DECLAWED CATS-72-A rescue’s veterinarian said declawing causes diabetes because of excess cortisol (a chemical in the cat’s body) because of constant pain. Too much cortisol has an effect on the pancreas. Diabetic cats need daily doses of insulin.
