Stray Mongrel (野犬) is discussing:

New York might become the first US state to ban cat declawing - but it's been illegal in Europe for years.

As an American: I do not know, nor have I ever known, anyone who has declawed their cat.

I certainly would not do this to a cat, and don't know anyone that would.

It should be illegal.

Don't fuck up a perfectly good cat like this. This is just selfish and immoral.

And I don't even like cats.
