BREAKING NEWS: Israel Bans Declawing

On November 28th Israel unanimously passed a resolution banning the declawing of cats except in rare cases of medical necessity. This comes with a punishment of up to $20,000 in fines plus a one year jail sentence for anyone caught in the act.

Israel joins the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe in banning this procedure as cruel and inhumane.

For this eminently civilized legal action, we give Israel two enthusiastic paws up....WAAAAY up!
