I posted this before but it got lost with the server outage. I didn't hear about the possible declaw ban until recently and I wasn't expecting this news. New York State may become the first state ever to have a state wide ban on declawing. The bill is waiting for the governor's signature or veto. A cat owner could, however, just bring their cat to another state to have their cat declawed. I don't see every single state banning the procedure anytime soon and I haven't seen a word about declawing in my home state. The declawing of cats isn't the most humane, IMO, and I did convince a friend not to have their cats declawed a while back.
