NEW YORK – The Empire State has become the first in the nation to make declawing cats illegal.

Governor Andrew Cuomo signed it into law Monday, threatening anybody who performs the procedure unless its medically necessary with a fine of $1,000.

"Declawing is a cruel and painful procedure that can create physical and behavioral problems for helpless animals, and today it stops," Cuomo said.

"By banning this archaic practice, we will ensure that animals are no longer subjected to these inhumane and unnecessary procedures."

3. Great news for cats and cat lovers.

Remember, it is only a couch or chair that can be replaced. Nothing on Earth like the love of a cat or dog.

6. Very true!

I have an 8 month old rescue puppy. He was supposed to grow up to be less than 10 pounds. He weighs 17 pounds at this moment.

I think my blue and gold macaw likes him but it makes me nervous to watch Hal and Miss Frodo going almost nose to nose when he stands up on his hind legs. He looks like a Border Terrier.

7. Saw that on the local news last night. I've always used vets who refused to declaw healthy cats.

8. I used to work as a vet tech many years ago

To, "declaw", the vet has an instrument that crushes and removes the first joint of a cat's toes. Sometimes they cry, even though knocked out.
