Paw Project to Outlaw Declawing Cats in All States

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (02-08-2020) #661: Featuring Dr Jenny Conrad, Brigitte Schuster, and David Rosenfelt. Dr. Jenny Conrad talks about why other veterinarians “should care more about cats than couches” when they declaw cats, which is why she launched The Paw Project, working to change laws state by state, so that it’s illegal to declaw a cat as it already is in many countries abroad; Brigitte Schuster in Berne, Switzerland explains her book ARCATTECTURE: SWISS CAT LADDERS about the exterior access people give cats to their houses and apartments; David Rosenfelt talks about his fun canine-centric books BARK OF NIGHT and DACHSHUND THROUGH THE SNOW.
