Pet owners-- we all know how frustrating it can be to come home from work and see scratch marks on the couch or the walls, completely ruining our furniture. For dogs, we can grind or clip their nails, but for cats it has been a different story...until now.

Declawing our pet cat is actually a very painful and malicious procedure according to fluffysworld.com. In which case, 20 countries around the world have BAN declawing cats and for the first time--New Jersey will be the FIRST state to ban this cruel act in the U.S.

The consequences of the declawing of cats will be paying a $1000 and/or spending 6 months in jail.

Apparently, the site says that declawing a cat is the equivalent to cutting off the finger tips of a human to the first knuckle. Thus leaving cats with permanent nerve damage and more aggression.
