This kitty was declawed ON ALL 4 paws and thrown away by the owner because he started biting.😿
Recently a Canadian 🇨🇦 vet, who actually stopped declawing at his practice, said that it is "pure bull%@&*" when I say that thousands of declawed cats are thrown away because of the behavioral issues they develop from their toe and claw amputations and many are euthanized.😿💔
He also said, "I know you find it upsetting that your well intentioned viewpoint is based on shoddy, anecdotal evidence and wishful thinking" and that this is about as accurate as flat earther evidence. WTH? Flat earth? Wishful thinking? #RUDE

I stand by my statement and I know it is 100% factual. Declawing causes thousands of cats to be thrown away and many euthanized. #WAKEup

Mutual baffing... I love these sweet babies... Their vet appointment is on January 30th at 430p... I am working on getting a gofundme page up to cover the cost of the presumed diagnostics they're going to want to run on both Quill & Nebula. As ya'll know, with Yondu's passing we've kept a particularly close eye on her siblings... Rocket is 100% fine (likely has a different daddy), Groot has a very mild version of megacolon (he's fine and gaining weight as long as he's on a specific diet & regiment)... Quill has a *suspected* heart murmur but besides that doesn't seem to have GI issues other than certain foods upset his stomach... Nebula is a mystery... I have my theories about what's wrong with her but I'm going to spare the speculation & rely on the vet/tests and what we find... She likely has a moderate form of megacolon & some malabsorptive issues like Yondu. Nebbie has not weighed more than 2.5# (other than just after a meal) while Quill (for reference) weighs over 4#... They've been treated for every kind of parasite & worm multiple times so I'm confident that is not the cause (plus she was gaining weight until she hit 2.5#). I don't know if her condition is time limited (fatal) or if it's something totally treatable ... but with Yondu's health problems I really believe we need to rule everything else out before we come to that conclusion... therefore, this is likely to be an expensive vet visit ... but, she is worth it. We did learn about Yondu's condition which can help us tailor some of the tests but again, she could be her own independent hot mess not related to Yondu ... I will of course keep ya'll updated as always & i will let you know when I have the gofundme up! Thank you 💖

Hi furiends, AB here with Pearl and Mommy.

Meet Magnum! He used to live at @felinerescue's Saint Paul Adoption Center, but he has unexplained rear leg weakness that needs evaluating in a foster home. He is the most mellow, loving guy! He was beloved at the shelter, and he's already got a following here...my daughter is smitten! And, yes, apparently all I foster are black cats now! 😝

Alright Kelly here. I would like to give a little info on cat's claws. This is due to a recent video that @cats_of_instagram posted of a nail trim, that got a ton of Hate. Thanks to @3leggedwhitaker for making me aware. While I know most of you already know what I am going to say, I feel like there may be people who don't and might be confused. .

1. Declawing is a terrible practice and should be against the law. Unfortunately in the US it's not. It's cruel, painful, can cause behavior issues, and balance problems. If you look up the procedure you will see just how barbaric declawing is. Imagine your fingers being cut off at the first knuckle. Now think how hard it would be to do average things. How frustrating it would be. Why would you want to do that to your best friend? Check out @pawproject for more info. .

2. Clipping a cats claws if done correctly (watch an instructional video on YouTube) is PAINLESS. If your cat likes to tear up furniture or you, this is the best way to prevent that. This is how I learned. Cat's claws can grow into the pads, they can get stuck on fabric which can cause harm if they are fighting to get loose. (Elvira fell once from the cat tree because of this and her nail was hurt and bleeding) it's best to try and get into a routine early on. If you have any questions I would be happy to help.

This photo is older. I was actually taking a video and Poe did this. I was not hurt while this was happening. Do you see how long and sharp his claws are? I have a very hard time clipping his nails. He's a scared cat and though he has gotten better in the almost two years we've had him he's still scared of everything. We don't know what happened to him before we got him but we don't think he was treated well. Poe fights me but I have to do it. 😻About every two weeks or so I try and clip all three cats nails, one after the other. That way they know it's not a big deal and they can get treats at the same time. If you got this far thanks for reading. #pawsneedclaws #nohumanswereharmedinthemakingofthisphoto
