I did not know this before I had read it here on freekibbles.com. I had always heard of declawing a cat, but didn’t know it was like an amputation. That’s terrible. I couldn’t remember if I had posted this before, so I am posting this for my animal lover readers and followers.
Also check into what a “barkless” dog is before buying one from a breeder who says he/she raises “barkless” dogs. This usually means the larynx has been crushed in some manner so the dog can’t bark. The only reason to buy from a breeder in this case would be to save the poor thing from further harm and torture.
