I spent a considerable amount of time today on petfinder looking at senior kitties, and I ranted about this on twitter a couple hours ago, but I am just shocked and appalled how many cats up for rescue have been declawed. It’s mind boggling to me.
I think there should be a firm rule- if you want your cat declawed, first, you have to have every finger on your left hand amputated at the first knuckle and live with it for a couple months before you declaw your cat. If you don’t find it a problem, then you can declaw your god damned cat.
And what makes it all worse about these cats on petfinder is that they were mauled like this, and it still wasn’t good enough and they are living in a cage because they didn’t live up to your expectations or your new girlfriend/boyfriend has allergies or you had to move and just couldn’t find an apartment that would let you have your cat. You fucking assholes.
If you can’t handle claws on your cat, get a fucking stuffed animal, you ghoulish bastards. Tunch shredded three corners of two couches, and I would give anything to have him here shredding another one, you inhumane, insensitive, louts. How are they supposed to defend themselves? Or climb away from danger?
And spare me the bullshit about people needing to have cats in an apartment so this is better than not adopting or having a cat turned out in a shelter. Here’s a choice for you idiots. Which would you rather be? Would you rather be homeless or have your fucking fingers and toes cut off? I know my choice, you degenerate losers.
Do vets not have a hippocratic oath? Who does this to cats and sleeps at night. Or “debarks” a dog by surgically ripping out their voice box? You Mengele like assholes.
Get a fucking fish tank, assholes. These are animals, and just like us they have feelings, emotions, needs, they understand pain and can be vessels to provide unlimited love to good owners, and they don’t need some dickhead adopting them lopping off their god damned fingers to fit your fucking lifestyle.
If you think your couch is more important than your fucking pet, you don’t need a pet. You need a soul transplant and a lot of lithium and self evaluation. Assholes.
