Paw Project Receives Five More Relinquished Declawed Cats Who Have Litter Box Issues-Bone Pieces Removed

Today we took in 5 cats from the Humane Society of Hamilton County, all declawed and relinquished to the shelter for litterbox problems. Two of them are 15 years old. Three of the cats need surgery to remove bone fragments. Stay tuned to see the radiographs and photos of the fragments removed.

Tobias (the beautiful orange guy in the kennel second from right in yesterday’s photo) was in lots of pain. His paw x-rays showed that he had very large bone fragments in four of his five toes on his left front paw (the red arrows). When the surgery was done, the fragments were found to be around 1/2 cm (about 1/4 inch) long! We are hoping that this surgery will give him comfort and help this 15-year-old boy find a new home.
