This State Just Made Cat Declawing Illegal


New York just made history as the first state in the U.S. to outlaw the declawing, a painful and typically unnecessary procedure sometimes performed on cats. Any veterinarian caught declawing a cat in the state will be fined $1,000, as reported by the Huffington Post.

New York state lawmakers actually passed the bill banning declawing earlier this year, but it didn't become law until Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed it on Monday, July 22. The bill will go into effect immediately, Times Union reported.
