Happy Toesday everyone! Today at the Tabby Cat Club, they are celebrating toes. All the talk of toes reminded me of declawing and how awful it is. I cat sit for 2 cats that were rescued, but their former owner had a procedure done to them that is supposed to be less invasive than declawing. It is a tendon cut, which sounds pretty awful to me. These cats need to get their nails trimmed often because they can’t retract them. Has anyone else ever heard of this?

  1. OUCH…..tendon cutting seems just about as awful as declawing…..I’m glad I’m “au natural” !! We love the story of Ghost and his homeless humans and were so touched to learn that they have received some wonderful help from a most kind human – we hope the funding page is a BIG hit too because the thought that two homeless people would adopt a homeless kitty who trusted them to take care of him….well….it made my Mom leaky-eyed. Have a super day and thanks for the pink tongue shot of Joannie – just as good as a tummy I’d say!

    Hugs, Sammy

  2. I get really passionate (read: MAD) when I hear of some other torturous procedure a veterinarian has created to hobble poor kitties. Why cut the tendon? I feel so sorry for those kitties, because they naturally want to pull and scratch…but cannot.

  3. guys….tho we due knot noe what iz involved & frank lee we due knot want two noe; a tendon cut soundz az vizshuz az de claw…HIZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    pee ezz….joanie…what kinda tastee snax did ya just haz !!! 🙂 ♥♥♥

    • I agree, a tendon cut sounds awful. This was the only one I ever heard of so I was curious if anyone else knew about it. Joanie had a little butter on her nose 🙂

    • Thanks for the pawkisses for Lucy, we read on her blog today that she feels better. And I agree, it is against the cat’s nature and so cruel.

  4. Sounds awful to me…any time you muck around with an animal to make life easier for you is a worry 🙁 we also think it is great that Ghost and his family are on their way to a better life…and as for the cute pictures Phoebe ..well just cute 🙂 Loves Fozziemum xx

    • I agree, people that do stuff like that don’t deserve to have pets. I am hoping Ghost’s family gets a book deal. XO and love to you.

  5. WHAT??? Dat’s pawful!!!! Now they can’t retract their claws? Dat sounds like an oxymoron and completely defeats da purrpuss. OMC Weez so sowry fur da poor sweet kitties. weez just don’t even know what to say. Mommy judt keeps shakin’ hers head. Luv all yous fotos.

    • That is very sad, I just wanted people to know about this happening too. I had never heard of it until my friend adopted these 2 cats that already had it done. XO

  6. All 10 of us kitties have all our claws and we also know how to use them too.
    🙂 Never heard of tendon cutting but it sounds horrible.
    So nice to see the photo of you and your friend Carol and that cute pink tongue of Joanie’s made us smile.

      • It is down right disgusting!
        My upstairs neighbor wants to ‘declaw’ Purrsia & I almost ‘ripped her a new one’ so to speak!! I explained the pain they go thru & how it is like us losing our fingers to 1st knuckle. I think she is rethinking THAT idea!
        I would not want to hurt a 4 legged intentionally for my ‘own’ comfort….I told her to buy scratch post…what a novel idea, huh???? 😉
