What if people, who perform legal cruelty to animals, were able to stop and silence respectful and educational campaigns and petitions that shine light on that cruelty?
What if good people were silenced and stopped from doing educational and respectful campaigns to end unlicensed animal breeding, end breeding orcas in captivity, end the cruel treatment of animals in zoos or circuses, end the practice of unclaimed pets being sold for use in laboratories, end horses being used in bullfighting, end the Yulin dog meat festival, end the slaughtering of whales and dolphins by the people who were doing all these terrible things to animals. What if I was stopped from shining light on the cruel and inhumane practice of amputating cats and kitten’s toe bones and claws?

Sometimes I wonder what I'm doing with my nine lives.
My mom and I worked on this story for days.
The @avmavets ‘s journal, JAVMA, ran a letter to the editor about a painless declaw that a Hawaiian vet claims to have invented.
JAVMA edited this vet's letter and took out the fact that he claims it is painless and has been doing thousands of these partial toe bone amputations with NO PAIN MEDS! #wtf
I posted about my story today on my fb page with 250k followers and got only two shares, 8 comments, and only 54 signatures on my petition to the AVMA.
Am I wasting my time?
This is a big story in my opinion but it seems like no one cares.
I'm tired of this fight.
My mom and I work our every waking hour as a volunteer for this cause. We need your help.
Please sign my petitions, go to my website www.citythekitty.com and help support our work.
It takes 20 seconds to sign one of my petitions and your voice does make a difference.
You helped Inspire Texas Coalition for Animal Protection to stop declawing a few months ago. Anything is possible!
My story is on the link on my Instagram bio or on my website, blog, citythekitty.com and the petition is on it too.

Many of you sent me a heads up about a vet in Hawaii who claims he does a painless declaw.
I looked into this and did an in-depth story. Also, the @avmavets ‘s peer-reviewed, general scientific journal, JAVMA, posted a Letter to the Editor, from this long time AVMA vet, Dr Kerry Yoon, and renamed his Letter to the Editor, "A different approach to declawing." This vet has been doing a partial amputation procedure with a Rescoe guillotine clipper, for over 40 years to cats and kittens and uses electro-cautery to burn away the nail tissue and claims that it is a revolutionary and completely painless procedure.
He has never used any pain meds for all those kitties!
JAVMA edited his original letter to the editor and took out the fact that he claims it is painless and never uses pain meds.
This is unconscionable in my opinion!
My in-depth story involved over 100 emails from this vet. He did not like that I questioned him about the details and how could it be painless. He was condescending, demeaning, and insulting in his comments towards me and was the same towards the veterinarians who I was using as expert advisors for information.
My story, with JAVMA's edited letter to the editor is on the link on my Instagram bio or on my blog at citythekitty.com
Please sign and share my petition to the AVMA that’s in my story.
How can JAVMA give such a HUGE platform to a vet who has been doing thousands of partial toe amputations with ZERO pain meds?
Remember to always take the high road and be respectful. When you are rude or threaten anyone, it is wrong and plus it hurts the cause. #PawsNeedClaws
IN THE 11TH HOUR OF WORKING ON THIS STORY, DR YOON EMAILED ME LATE LAST NIGHT AND SAID, "After conversing with Dr Nicole, I’ve decided it wouldn’t hurt to add postoperative pain medication to my protocol . You can print this too." #avma #cruelty #platform #bethechange #voiceforthevoiceless #makeadifference
Dear @aspca , You keep mailing these letters to us. We will donate to you again when you support the anti-declawing legislation. You do wonderful things to help end cruelty to animals. So why do you keep changing your reasons for wanting to keep the inhumane, mutilating, and CRUEL procedure of declawing legal?
There are ALWAYS humane alternatives to amputating a cat's and kitten's toe bones and claws and you know it! whose side are you on? The Cats or declawing vets?
There are thousands of declawed cats who are thrown away and around 80% are euthanized BECAUSE of their behavioral issues from their declaws. Don't you care about those cats?
Friends, please use your voice and let's inspire ASPCA to support the declawing legislation in NY and NJ!
It takes 20 seconds to sign my petition. Let's get to 10,000 signatures by next week! Petition is on the link on my Instagram bio or at citythekitty.com
Also let the aspca respectfully know how you feel. Aspca Email contacts are in the petition. #bethechange #makeadifference
I will always stand for what is right and will never be silenced.
Please stand with me and use your voice to help us end declawing!
Please sign my petition that’s on the link on my Instagram bio to the American Association of Feline Practitioners #catvet
A vet practice that calls itself CAT FRIENDLY should NEVER be able to do such a harmful and inhumane procedure to cats and kittens. It takes 30 seconds to sign and we are almost at 10,000 signatures!

This is disturbing, this is sad, and this is cruelty.
And guess what.
It is being done to around 30,000 cat$ and kittens$ a day in America by around 75% of all vet$ who took an oath to EASE the suffering in animals. #greed

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends--- MLK

Please read the new Sandusky Register story that’s on the link on my Instagram bio.
I respectfully reached out to the executive director of the Humane Society of Erie County in Ohio, who is doing great things for the welfare of animals in her area. I tried to inspire her to at least educate the public about the facts about declawing and have a no declaw clause in their adoption contract.
We had a respectful dialogue but she said, “My staff are trained to tell people when asked, that we NEVER declaw and do not give advice about it whatsoever. They need to contact their Veterinarian who provides routine care for their pets about this and have that discussion with them.”
My question to her is what would it hurt if she educated the public about the awful truth about declawing so that they possibly wouldn’t want to do such a harmful and inhumane procedure to the cats and kittens they adopt.
Unfortunately the local vets don’t seem to think there’s anything wrong with this mutilating procedure and they all perform them routinely.
This comment from one of the local vets is probably the most ignorant and shocking comments I’ve ever heard about declawing from a vet.
“The local veterinarian said comparisons between human anatomy and cat anatomy are misleading. Cats are declawed because they have little feeling in the tips of their paws, and corrective surgery can avoid much of the pain of the procedure, the veterinarian said.”
This is a perfect example of why we must ban declawing and protect cats from these vey unethical people who call themselves doctors. Shameful and unbelievable that any vet would say such a false statement.
Please make sure you leave respectful and educational comments on the story. It’s obvious that we need to educate the public in this area about the facts about declawing because the local vets clearly aren’t.
I’m also shocked that the newspaper would withhold the name of the vet who said those comments. #truth #pawsneedclaws #ignorance #informed #public #sandusky #ohio

When humans are ignorant, cats and kittens alway pay the price. #stopdeclawing
I must be slacking in my sales pitches for my awesome hardcover photo book. I did three posts this week and only two people picked one up.
That’s a pretty dismal sales record out of around 360,000 followers! I don’t want to lose my job as the sales rep for my book so can you offer me some tips.
Thanks to those two people this week and many of you who have picked one up over the last year.
My mom and I worked for around six months on it and it was a labor of love.
I’ve let people know that it’s getting rave reviews, that it has only funny and happy photos of me in it, that It’s a way people can help us continue working on this important cause full-time, that it is a great way to get out the word for our cause, and that it can inspire kids and adults to believe they can truly make a positive difference in our world.
It’s only $14.99. Is that price too high?
Maybe it’s that time of the year or maybe my posts aren’t going out to that many people.
My book is available at www.citythekitty.com
Any advice you can offer is welcome. Thank you so much! #PawsNeedClaws #catbook #catlovers #booklovers #goodcause
There are days that I feel like giving up on this cause because it is so difficult and frustrating.
No matter how the pro-declaw side tries to stop me or makes my life difficult, I won't give up fighting the good fight to save kitties from having their toe bones and claws amputated.
I really need your help . I need ONE person who had their cat declawed at this vet practice in Albion, Illinois to come forward and file a report about how this vet isn't using any pain meds after he declaws cats. (This vet practice in Illinois does NOT have a facebook page fyi)
About 6 months ago I reached out to the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to alert them about this American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) @avmavets vet. (He's a 40 year member)
They said I could file a complaint. So I did and attached all the info and my story. (Story is on my fb post or google “city the kitty declawed with no pain meds”)
Well, I waited and waited and tried to follow up and the nice man in charge said there is one investigator for 300 cases. Today he told me that he needs evidence and needs a pet owner whose cat was declawed by this vet without pain meds to come forward. He said that owner will have to agree to signing a release for me to obtain records.
After ALL this waiting, why didn't he tell me this in the first place, that they can't do anything unless they have a cat owner file the report!!!! I mean, isn't there enough evidence in my story to AT LEAST look into this situation for goodness sake!
If you live in this area, please ask your family and friends to help asap! #TakeTheHighRoad #BeRespectful

Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. There’s a lot going on in my life and I’m not able to tell you about it...yet.
But I promise you, behind the scenes and though the wee hours of the night, my mom and I are still fighting this good fight and working on this cause to protect all cats from having their toes and claws amputated.
We know that if we need your help, you will be there for us.
This hasn’t been easy, in fact it’s one of the most difficult things we’ve been through, but I will never give up being a voice for my fellow kitties and will never stop shining light on this inhumane procedure of declawing that is being done to around 30,000 cats and kittens a day in America.
It’s insane to think that this cat cruelty and abuse is being done by vet$ who took an oath to EASE the suffering in animals. And it’s just so sad that there are people who are trying to stop me from my mission to save cats from the pain, suffering, and harm from this barbaric amputation procedure.

Please take 30 seconds and sign my important petition to the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) the Cat Friendly folks that’s on the link on my bio or website, and let’s try to inspire them to stop allowing declawing at their CAT FRIENDLY practices! #pawsneedclaws #stopdeclawing #catfriendly #aafp #catvets #BeTheDifference #bethechange
I’m so sad that American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) would block me.
The only thing that I’m doing is shining light on the fact that they allow their CAT FRIENDLY declawing vets to lie about how declawing is performed, they allow their declawing vets to promote this inhumane procedure on their social media pages, and they allow them to even put out coupons for it.
Why wouldn’t the leaders at this feline practitioners organization do the right thing and not allow this barbaric and mutilating procedure at their CAT FRIENDLY vet practices?
Maybe you can give me some answers because the only one makes sense is that they are afraid to lose the membership$ of these declawing vet$ so they put the welfare of their pocketbooks over the welfare of cats.
That’s pretty sad coming from an organization that says they are all about the welfare of cats isn’t it?
Please take 30 seconds and sign my petition to the president of this organization that’s on the link on my Instagram bio or website, citythekitty.com #voiceforthevoiceless

You aren’t going to believe how the pro-declaw side is trying to stop me. Someday I’m going to write a book about all this!
I’m real tired of being accused of things that I’m not doing and people lying about me and my mom.
I’m just a little orange kitty with thumbs who’s trying to protect kittens and cats from barbarically having their toe bones and claws amputated and having their health and well-being harmed for life.
Will you please take 20 Seconds of your time and sign the petition to the American Association of Feline Practitioners that’s on the link on my bio or on my website citythekitty.com.
Declawing should NEVER be performed at a CAT FRIENDLY practice. It’s false and deceptive advertising to call a vet practice CAT FRIENDLY if they do such and inhumane and harmful procedure to cats!!!! #falseadvertising #not #catfriendly #stopdeclawing #greed #pawsneedclaws #accountability
