Kellan Lutz is super hot and hunky but guess what…
He also looooooves animals!! That's the best part about him! (Other than his rockin' bod).
After learning about how cruel it is to declaw cats, Kellan took to twitter, posting:
Declawing is really reallllly inhumane.
People have no idea how bad it is or are misinformed into thinking it's good.
The Paw Project's website said:
"The Paw Project educates the public about why declawing is inhumane. Many people, including animal lovers, do not realize that declawing is a surgical procedure in which the animal’s toes are amputated at the last joint. A portion of the bone, not just the nail, is removed. Declawing may result in permanent lameness, arthritis, and other long-term complications. The practice, although common in the United States, is actually illegal in many countries. Great Britain’s Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons goes so far as to declare declawing 'unnecessary mutilation.'"
So it's not just like removing nails or something… it's a full on amputation!!!
That's just so awful! Let's all take a stand against declawing!
Got a kitty who likes to scratch?? Then get them a scratching post! Don't declaw!!
