There should be a compulsory requirement that all cat owners watch the declaw operation before deciding to request the operation for their cat. I don't think this is such an extreme idea. When people purchase something, an object or a service they often do a considerable amount of research beforehand. When a person takes their cat along to the vet they don't have a clue about what is to going happen to their cat.
The whole horror of the operation is hidden from view. It is packaged and sterilized. The reality is turned into something palatable.
If it was made compulsory for a cat owner to see the entire operation performed, together with the aftermath, it would at least allow the person to make an informed view. It would not infringe upon that person's democratic rights. It would simply be a bit of obligatory education on the subject of cat caretaking and we know how important that is.
Of course something as sensible and as humane as my suggestion will never happen because in general American's just don't care enough about declawing. Declawing of cats is a non-issue. It is not on the agenda. It just happens like buying the groceries.
This vet tech thinks like me.
