Several people wrote to my friend and co-journalist, telling us causes wasn’t counting or letting them sign. Which is a shame to say the least. Although, this puts us behind on our plans just a little. We have recreated the petition on Change.Org. Change doesn’t seem to have any issues when it comes to counting or letting people sign petitions. Therefore we will be sticking with them, until causes can rectify the issue they are having.
Moreover, this petition to have Pennsylvania outlaw cat declawing is very important to us and those who love their cats. This petition, if enough signatures obtained would change so many lives. Not just cats, yet for their guardians too.
I’m betting you are wondering how? Well first cats would no longer suffer excruciating pain or mental trauma. Second cat guardians will no longer have to watch their fur babies suffer from this barbaric act of cruelty. And third – cats will be able to be cats. (Just as nature intended)
Please sign, share or Retweet the petition, so we may obtain the signatures to get declawing outlawed.
Australia currently has an estimated six million stray cats. The Australian government is hoping to poison and kill TWO MILLION of these stray cats, by the year 2020!
The government’s cruel plan includes airdropping poisoned sausages for these cats to eat and painfully die from.
The Australian government has said the stray cats are a threat to native plants and farming. According to the scientists behind the poisoned sausages, the cats would die within 15 minutes of consumption.
Along with this, other Australians are often encouraged to trap and shoot the stray cats dead. In some areas of Australia, the government is offering money as a reward, per slain cat!
I urge you to demand Australia to think of a DIFFERENT and NON-LETHAL way, to stop the extinction of plant life!
If there are two million stray cats, why not implement a trap, neuter, release program instead! This method has been proven to work! Not only will it stop population growth, but it can also help adopt younger cats! Cats between the ages of newborn to 14 weeks old can be successfully adopted with minimal issues.
Other cats from six months to 2 years old can be adopted. It will just takes time to ease them into a domesticated lifestyle. The older cats could be placed in rescue/retirement sanctuaries. These sanctuaries offer a safe place for older cats to peacefully live out their lives. Much like any other animal sanctuary, caretakers are present to care for the animals. These cats would be neutered, vaccinated, fed, and given plenty of room to roam about.
The neuter-release, neuter-adopt, and neuter-sanctuary system, can and would work far better, than the planned murder of two millions cats. While murder is an instant solution for now, those population numbers will quickly rise again. Which will create an endless cycle of killing!
However, capture, neuter-release-adopt-or sanctuaries would permanently solve Australia’s current conundrum.
Please sign your name and urge the Australian government to adopt a non-lethal proposal instead!
Hunting: Cats are natural hunters. Their retractable claws provide them with traction while running and help them catch and hold onto their prey. If you watch the way your cat plays with its toys, you can see that while your indoor cat doesn’t need to hunt for its next meal, the practice of hunting and chasing is still an instinctual part of your cat’s behaviour.
Stretching: Being able to grip items, like your carpet, allows your cat to twist and stretch the full length of its body, which is not only a good form of exercise, but it’s also a great source of enjoyment for your cat.
Climbing: A cat’s claws are curved to help climb up trees and other surfaces to get to safety. For indoor cats, their claws allow them to grip items such as cat trees or furniture, so they don’t fall or slip.
Leaving their scent: When cats scratch an item, they leave behind a special scent produced from glands on their paws. This allows a cat to leave its signature behind as a message to other cats.
Protecting themselves: A cat’s claws act as a method of self-defence when faced with a predator. While indoor cats have little need to defend themselves, their claws still offer the security of knowing they have a form of protection. Cats also use their claws to communicate certain messages, for example swatting to communicate the need for distance.
Balance: When a cat is declawed, it’s not at all like clipping nails. Declawing is amputating the claw and related bone and muscle tissue. Without their claws, cats often have trouble balancing
Please help us end the barbaric declawing of cats. Outlaw the torture.
