City council members to vote on 'cat declawing' ban Monday evening

City council members to vote on 'cat declawing' ban Monday evening

A proposal to officially ban cat declawing in Denver was unanimously approved by city council on Monday night.

According to The Denver Post, practicing veterinarian Casara Andre said declawing can be performed in a way that prevents pain for the pet, although she opposes the surgery as a routine operation.

Butler said she has chosen not to help with declawings anymore. They credit the procedure for improvements their cats' indoor behavior, with less scratching of furniture and home interiors. Critics including developer Kyle Zeppelin say the issue distracts from more pressing issues in Denver, such as the affordable housing crunch. In those special cases, Denver will allow the procedure.

Declawing occurs in a procedure known as onychectomy.

Denver veterinarian Aubrey Lavizzo previously said it's not only painful for cats but also leads to behavioral issues that pet owners find challenging like using the bathroom in unwanted places.

Eight California cities, including Los Angeles and San Francisco, have passed prohibitions of elective declawing since 2003. Australia, Japan, Brazil, Israel and multiple countries in Europe also have similar bans.

Some argued before city council that the ban would take away options for cat owners.

This is the first USA city outside of California to ban the procedure, the Denver Post reported.

"Onychectomy is an amputation and should be regarded as a major surgery", according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.
