Berkeley Has BANNED Declawing!

We are so proud to be Californians.  On the heels of West Hollywood, Santa Monica, and our beloved San Francisco, Berkeley has also banned declawing cats!   Next up – the city of Los Angeles will decide.

Then it’s the rest of the US.  Come on, you can do it!  Start calling your mayors and town/city officials.   Get the ball in motion in your community!

And when you do, tell us about it, and we’ll mention it in our blog and in our newsletter:   http://www.catfaeries.com/newsletter.html

Declaw Ban – San Francisco DID IT!

They did it!  The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted to BAN declawing cats in the city of San Francis.   It’s about time!

West Hollywood did it years ago!   Santa Monica recently banned declawing!  Berkeley and Los Angeles will be the next cities to consider it!

We take a deep bow to the 8 supervisors who voted yes!  As for the 2 who refused the vote yes (Michela Alioto-Pier and Sean Elsbernd) we arch our backs and hiss.

The bill now goes before Mayor Gavin Newsom.  He has the power to  sign it into law or to veto it.   Let’s hope that he respects the wishes of the Board of Supervisors and signs the bill.

If you wish to contact Mayor Newsom here is his contact information.

Come on America!  If every European nation can ban declawing, so should we!  If Martha Stewart can trim her cat’s nails and live with a few shredded places on her furniture so should we!
