Lawmakers look to ban cat declawing in New York State
POSTED 7:01 PM, MAY 22, 2016

ALBANY, N.Y. ó Legislation in New York to ban declawing cats is singling out a once-common procedure that veterinarians say is now on the decline.

The measure has divided veterinarians. Some say declawing is cruel because it involves amputating the first segments of a catís toes. But others say it must remain legal as a last resort for troubled felines whose scratching behavior canít be controlled.

New York State Senate Bill S5084 would prohibit declawing of cats and other animals.

Backers of the bill say declawed cats are prone to developing behavioral problems that lead to them being surrendered to animal shelters and ďfor the most part, not adoptable.Ē

New York lawmakers are also considering eliminating sales taxes on pet food. They have already voted to allow dogs to join their owners on restaurant patios. Many states have banned a controversial procedure that removes a dogís vocal cords, and all 50 states now have laws making severe animal cruelty a felony.

Declawing is currently banned in nearly 10 cities in California. Itís also banned in countries around the world including Switzerland, Israel and the United Kingdom.

According to the New York State Senateís website, the status of the bill is in committee.

A Meek 'Meow' Was Heard Beneath The Cement, So They Started Drilling...
APRIL 9, 2016 — By Tim Unkenholz

If you heard the tiniest "meow" coming from beneath the very cement you were walking on, what would you do? For one group of people, the choice was clear.For days, visitors at the Cultural Center in Araras, Brazil, heard the cries of kittens coming from below the entrance. When they called the police, they were ignored, so they realized if these kittens' lives were to be saved, it was up to them!
It's believed the kittens were living up on the roof of the building when they fell down a drain pipe that led underground. Since the rescue, the group has received ample donations of milk, medicine, and toys to help the poor, orphaned cats. When they become strong enough, the group intends to put them up for adoption!

So i've been debating on returning Ares to the adoption people. its been 2 weeks and he wont let anyone near him and hisses all the time if i get near 10 feet of him. Hes eating but..not eating enough for his size. I was told he spent about 6 months on the street but i think he's been out there way longer and those ways are set..

I had to take back an adult male cat that I found a home for once.
It is very difficult to make a house cat out of a male that has lived outside.
If you do take him back, take one of my kittens.

My story is relevant. Maybe. I got my last male tabby "Salvador" after my pal trapped him in his garage/carport. He was probably 8 weeks old when I got him, in a taped up box with the choice of delivering to me or the shelter. My pal slipped on his leather gloves as I started opening the box, he squeezed his hand in the opening and grabbed Salvador which produced a sound not too unlike the Tasmanian devil, but higher pitched. The kitten came out of the box in full attack mode, landing consecutive attacks to the fingers of the glove under full claw lock. "Are you sure you still want him?" Naturally I said yes. For the next week we never saw him, but every morning the food bowl was emptied. The second week he would spy on us from the adjacent room, but if you moved, he split. It went on progressively to where he ended up as a food obsessed, belly rub loving, run-and-cover-mode at any surprise noise adult cat. If anything, maybe give your "kitten" another week, unless you're trapped in deadline. But you may be right, he may be too old and set his ways.

I got 3 when I moved into my house. Then the GF moved in with her 3. One of them died and we were sad. Then we found 4 feral kittens, we had planned on giving them away once we got them fixed and such, instead we ended up keeping those 4 goofballs. So now we have 9. 3 are permanently out door cats, 2 are almost always indoor cats, then the 4 kittens sort of come and go as we let them in and out.

GF found this cute kitten on her way walking to work this morning. We had tons of rain last night from tropical storm Collin. It looks small and weak so we are going to take it up to a vet in a little bit. I am going to try not to come home with it, but we will see.
