ENDEARMENT PHOTO OF THE WEEKin The World As We See It (09/13)
FEATURED in The World As We See It (09/13)
09.15.2013
After I photographed this sweet , sad doggie, the owner told me she had been injured by a neighbor dog, and the wound had become infected.
The sign “BEWARE OF DOG” in the front yard, was laughable… she came right to me at the short fence.. wagging her tail!!
DEDICATED to all pet owners who take good care of their pets.
My message is: Please adopt pets ONLY if they you can afford to pay for medical expenses.. and we all know that there will be vet costs for sure!!!!

    My guy goes to get fixed very soon. Do you keep your cats indoors? Are they declawed?

  • Luckily we have a patio that extends into a small garden.. Wayne extend the fence with lattice all around.
    We keep the door open from the living room to the patio from about 7am to 11pm i the summer and from 7am to about 9pm or whenever it cools down, in the winter months.. They come and go at will. There is too much danger out there in the big wide world, so I have never ever let cats or dogs roam in my entire life of pets!
    Declawing is actually mutilation.. they remove an entire joint.. not just a nail. I clip all seven of the cats claws regularly.

  • I just googled declawing.. Here is the info….

    What is declawing?
    Too often, people think that declawing is a simple surgery that removes a cat’s nails—the equivalent of having your fingernails trimmed. Sadly, this is far from the truth.

    Declawing traditionally involves the amputation of the last bone of each toe. If performed on a human being, it would be like cutting off each finger at the last knuckle.

    How is a cat declawed?
    *The standard method of declawing is amputating with a scalpel or guillotine clipper. The wounds are closed with stitches or surgical glue, and the feet are bandaged.
    Another method is laser surgery, in which a small, intense beam of light cuts through tissue by heating and vaporizing it. However, it’s still the amputation of the last toe bone of the cat and carries with it the same long-term risks of lameness and behavioral problems as does declawing with scalpels or clippers.

    I have a scratching post in each room. To train the cat to use it…. show them!

    Yikes, well that’s out of the question! He has a scratching post but doesn’t use it but doesn’t really scratch anything up.
