Don’t declaw your cat

Seriously tho, declawing your cat is basically mutilation, and its is a procedure that it never done for the sake of the animal. 

(tl;dr: at the bottom)

Declawing is a serious surgical amputation that some vets even opt out of offering and many counties/states/countries have bans on because of how terrible it is for the cat. It causes long lasting problems that end up permanently crippling the cat. 

First declawing isn’t just the removal of the cats nail, it’s the amputation of the last joint in each cat’s toe (that’s 10 separate amputations) in order to remove the nail and accompanying cartilage; all of which which are important to help a cat balance properly, climb, and defend themselves, and serve other functions.

The surgery causes long lasting pain. There is always the possibly that the nails may grow back inside of the paw, which is impossible for anyone to see. Soon there is agradual weakening of leg, shoulder, and back muscles, and because of impaired balance caused by the procedure, declawed cats have to relearn to walk, much as a person would after losing their toes.

Other complications caused by this surgery may be: 

  • Adverse reaction to anesthetic
  • Gangrene, which can lead to limb amputation
  • Hemorrhaging
  • Permanent nerve damage
  • Persistent pain
  • Reluctance to walk
  • Scar tissue formation
  • Sequestrum (bone chips), requiring additional surgery 
  • Skin disorders

(note: a few of these, like adverse reaction to anesthetic or sequsetrum, are general concerns with most surgical procedures but could cause problems specific to declawing none the less.) 

tl;dr: 

Declawing is:

  •  a serious surgical amputation that some vets even opt out of offering and many counties/states/countries have bans on
  • amputation of the last joint in each cat’s toe to remove the nail and accompanying cartilage; all of which which are important to help a cat balance properly, climb, and defend themselves

Declawing causes:

  •  the nails may grow back inside of the paw, which is impossible for anyone to see
  • gradual weakening of leg, shoulder, and back muscles
  • impaired balance 
  • cats have to relearn to walk, much as a person would after losing their toes
  • Gangrene, which can lead to limb amputation
  • Hemorrhaging
  • Permanent nerve damage
  • Persistent pain
  • Reluctance to walk
  • Scar tissue formation
  • Sequestrum (bone chips), requiring additional surgery 
  • Skin disorders

If you are not prepared to deal with the fact that the cat may scratch and tear up furniture or other household items you are not prepared to house that cat. 

If you are not prepared to deal with that fact that the cat may scratch you or someone else you are not prepared to house that cat. 

If you are not prepared to take simpler and safer methods, such as training or regularly trimming it’s nail, to deal with any scratching habits the cat may have, you are not prepared to house that cat and should rethink doing so.

Please don’t be mean to freshmen. Please don’t be mean to younger kids for no reason. It’s already difficult enough going through the transition process of changing schools. They don’t need you to be an asshole to them for no reason on top of that.

Once you’re a senior, you’ll feel different about this. Trust me.

I am a senior. 
And if you’re a senior you should ESPECIALLY not be harassing freshmen. you should know better. 

thanks you ihatecispeople for teaching us this important lesson in tolerance

You’re welcome :]

Why do police officers even have the ability to turn off body/dash cams

What is the point of that

You don’t put any other kind of employee in control of their own surveillance why the hell would you do it for people especially important to record
