My name is City the Kitty

I’m part manx and bengal with BIG polydactyl paws and a short tail. I’ve appeared on Animal Planet’s shows My Cat from Hell, 2010, (2nd season, Mad Max episode),  Bad Dog, 2011, and the KittenBowl 2015.

Together we can spread awareness that declawing cats should never be an option. Declawing is amputating the last bone of a cat’s paw and cutting through bone, tendons, skin and nerves. In a person, it is the same as amputating each finger at the last joint.

Declawing is one of the most painful and inhumane, routinely performed procedures in all of veterinary medicine, with many associated health risks and disabling consequences.

As for my personal life, well here it is in a nutshell. In 2009 I was out wandering the mean streets of the suburbs, when I was guided by some sort of divine intervention to this house with these girls who kept feeding me and giving me all the love I deserve. One of them started taking pictures of me, so I posed for her.  She obviously likes my style, because she hasn’t put the camera down.  I decided to stay since I’d been looking for a professional photographer to document my life and help make this world a better place in any way I can. And after all, she had just been laid off at her job as a photographer at the Latimes for 25 years, and she needed the work! 20,000 photos and videos later, here we are.

If you’re following me now, you’re family to me. I was made aware of the PawProject.org in 2014 and the cause to end the horrific procedure called declawing.  I was inspired by Dr Jennifer Conrad, the veterinarian who started the Paw Project and this important cause, and wanted to use my”fame” to give it my all and help end this inhumane thing.

I also want to someday help my local animal shelters and cat rescues and help cats and dogs find their forever homes.I have big things planned and with your help we can accomplish them, without a doubt!  So join me on this fun ride and be part of a bigger picture to help make our world a better place and be on the right side of cat history.

Love,

City the Kitty

Two Declawed Cats, Zachary and Maximilian

A frequent justification for declawing is that the cat would otherwise be banished from the home and that the procedure is a small price to pay for the kitty to live out its life in a safe and nurturing environment.
Sounds good, but it’s complete BUNK! Anyone who would subject their cat to the pain, disfigurement, and lifetime of misery resulting from a declaw procedure would discard them without a second thought.

4 Myths to Debunk Before You Consider Declawing Your Cat

As one of the many veterinarians who refuses to perform declawing surgery, I feel that I’ve heard all the excuses under the sun as to why cats should be declawed. Or, at least, what people thought they knew about declawing. Many people are shocked to learn how awful declawing actually is, and wonder why it was the norm for so long.

West Virginia, Please Ban Declawing And Save Cats From This Cruelty

Quote from West Virginia pro-declaw veterinarians, “You are right when you state there are those who would like to make declawing illegal. Many of those opinions have been formed by misinformation and what I call “internet-hype.” When performed properly, the declaw procedure results in no harmful side effects. In our experience, the cats have no higher incidence of any behavioral problems, which is in direct contrast to some of the fabrications that are now circulating. “

“I’m so against declawing that I’ve lost all desire to work in vet medicine.
I worked at ….. Animal Hospital for about a year and half. After the Paw Project came out, Dr ….. and I were thrilled to finally have a tool to help curb the desire to declaw. It worked great! We nearly stopped all declaws.

Buddy The Declawed Cat

The cat’s paws were scarred deeply in the back, with declawed stumps in the front. Affectionately known as “Buddy”, the cat pees outside the litter box, and is a powerful biter. It’s obvious why his owners threw him out of the house. How he survived outdoors was truly a miracle.
