de-clawing in Canada

 

What is declawing? Take a look at your hands. See your knuckles? Well imagine losing from the knuckle up.  How well would you be able to function?  Imagine having to walk on the stubs of your fingers. Does this sound humane? 38 countries do not agree but why does Canada still allow this animal cruelty?

 

Declawing Ruins a cat’s life and it can lead to behavioral problems such as peeing/pooping outside the litter box, phantom pains, misery/depression and so much more. Clickhere to hear why Jackson Galaxy, cat behaviorist, is emphatically against de-clawing.

Why spay and neuter your cat?

The problem of cat overpopulation is a global one and requires a solution on a global scale. Did you know that in seven years, an unspayed female and unneutered male cat (and their offspring, if none are spayed or neutered) can result in the births of the staggering number of 781,250 kittens? And the inevitable outcome? Hundreds of thousands of cats being euthanized each year through no fault of their own.

Despite some owners’ fears, spaying and neutering will not alter their cat’s basic personality – except many males will be less aggressive and more docile. Their playfulness, general activity levels, excitement, and vocalization will remain the same. Although neutered males and spayed females may gain weight due to decreased roaming and other sexual behavior outdoors, keeping them active indoors and managing their weight through diet will keep this potential problem under control.

Spaying and neutering cats before the age of six months is growing in popularity. Early spaying and neutering may also prevent problem behaviors before they occur and may either eliminate or reduce certain behaviors in older cats.
