I've had people tell me they're afraid the cat might claw their child's face. Well, so could a dog and no one declaws them.

Needs banned everywhere.
My new little one who found her way to me was already declawed.

Maybe that's why she ran away from the declaw human ? Paws hurt but feel better around empathic people who trust feline feelings naturally

This has been coming a long time. It's already law in many other countries.

The only time it should be available is if there is a congenital deformity that causes an ingrown claw. (And you'd be surprised how you can manage that). I do with one of mine with a Syndactyl.

And before that with a Polydactyl cat. (That's a lot of nails to clip - but it's very doable if you learn how). (Her Vet was all set to remove all her claws - I refused).

I've seen kitties develop terrible arthritis and biting habits from declaw procedures. Others seem to survive with almost no issue.
But I know I prefer my hands and feet with all the digits intact.
And it doesn't require much to teach a cat not to claw.

In Myrtle Beach only 2 of ten veterinary hospitals would declaw AND ONLY one would do it to any age cat

Good. It should be outlawed everywhere. Claws are a cats defenses.

That also is a common surgical restriction....front paw only declaws preserving a cat last defense from a mawler....powerful hind claws to dig deep painfully into a beast and jumping free during the shock to an attacker
