New, 26 comments

It looks like it'll soon be illegal to practice cat declawing, reports the LA Times, which reports the City Councill took preliminary action today to outlaw declawing. Councilman Bill Rosendahl has three cats, and has been the source of numerous quotes for the paper regarding cats and claws: "The bottom line is, you take the claws out of a cat, you take away the cat." Earlier this week, he told the Times: “Anyone who cannot handle the claws of a cat should not have a cat to begin with."
