Why cats should have the right to have claws.

Why Having Claws and Scratching is Important to Cats

Claws are a physically, socially, and emotionally vital part of every cat. Scratching, for a cat, is not only a natural act, but a necessary one as well. 

It removes the dead outer sheaths of nail, keeping it sharp and ready for action.

It is an essential exercise technique which serves to stretch and strengthen their upper bodies.

Cats mark their territory visually, especially in multi–cat households, as a way of determining rank.

Between your cat’s toes are scent glands which leave her “signature” when she scratches.

You Should Never Declaw Your Cat! 

Declawing is surgery where the claw and end bone of each toe are amputated; it is essentially the amputation of 1/3 of the cat’s paws. Declawed cats must be kept indoors only, since the front claws are a cat’s primary means of self-defense and escape against the many dangers and predators in our area. Declawed cats are often chronically painful, and may develop aggression or litter box problems. We strongly discourage declawing or tendonectomy surgeries.

Paws and claws are integral tools for cats in no uncertain physical and behavioral terms. We have seen many cats relinquished to shelters who were declawed and then developed new unwanted behaviors afterward, including urinating outside the litterbox (usually on carpets, bedding, and furniture), or increased aggression and biting. The Humane Society of Boulder Valley, Denver Dumb Friends League, and many other shelters nationwide condemn declawing, which is considered cruel and/or illegal in many other nations (note, since this article was written Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Monica, Berkeley, Beverly Hills, Culver City, West Hollywood and Burbank have banned Declawing

Princess Consuela was pregnant and scared when she was rescued from the back of a BMW at an auto body shop. She would have died trying to give birth if she was alone when she went into labor, because her first kitten had fatal congenital defects + anasarca that made it impossible for her to pass through the birth canal.

Thankfully, we saw that Princess Consuela needed help and were able to get her to Animal Emergency Clinic of the Fraser Valley for an emergency c-section that saved her life, and the lives of three of her four kittens.

It is important that we tell her story, because she shows us how important it is to spay and neuter.

Kittens were named by the ER staff and our viewers: Mercedes (stillborn), Tesla (tortie girl), Bentley (tabby boy), Allie (Calliby girl).

Spaying and neutering is the only way to prevent the tragedies like this that are happening every day. We rescue as many as we can, but there just aren’t enough resources to rescue every cat and kitten in need. You can help by becoming advocates for spay/neuter, supporting your local Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) efforts, signing up to be a foster parent at your local shelter and supporting rescue efforts that believe every life is worth saving.

Princess Consuela’s story will continue to unfold live and uncensored from now until she and her kittens are spayed/neutered and adopted into loving homes.

UPDATE JULY 18: We are very sorry to report that as feared, Tesla had a severe congenital heart defect and was beginning to go into heart failure. We made the decision to say goodbye to her at Mountain View to ensure she did not suffer. We did rads and an ultrasound to be sure there was nothing else we could do for her.

We hope you will find comfort knowing she lived her very best life possible, surrounded by love and comfort, and that she did not have to suffer at the end. We have no doubt she is frolicking with her sister Mercedes now.

This is the tragic reality of cat overpopulation. You can prevent so much suffering by becoming advocates for spaying and neutering, and supporting Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).

Rads are posted at TinyTapeworms if you would like to see Tesla’s heart, compared to Bentley’s heart. For peace of mind, we checked Bentley and Allie, and both of their hearts appear normal.

GUIDE FOR PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE: Be polite. Give each other the benefit of the doubt before taking offense. Don’t curse, don’t ask for subscriptions, don’t ask personal questions, don’t spam (including roll call requests & spamming emojis). No block caps. Thanks!

Harassing a moderator in chat is grounds for a timeout or ban at the moderator’s discretion. Harassing a moderator outside of chat is grounds for banning and the sharing of your info to other cams for them to ban you as well.

This is uncensored rescue reality TV. We give the best care possible 24/7, but we don’t know what will happen next. We livestream everything to raise awareness about the realities of cat overpopulation.

Ignore them. That’s what they hate the most. Their goal is to upset you so you yell at them. They think this is funny.

Thank mew so much to everyone who is watching!
