NY Considers Ban On Declawing Cats

There's another effort in Albany to ban the declawing of cats in the state.

Supporters say declawing is cruel punishment for cats and now the Senate and Assembly have legislation non the table to ban the procedure.. Declawing can involve the amputation of a cat's toes back to the first knuckle. 

But a group of veterinarians around the state oppose the ban because they say it should be a last resort for cats who won't stop scratching people or furniture. The state's Humane Society plans to lobby lawmakers this year because the bill didn't make it to the floor last year.
