After yesterday's Catster's Story about Declawing;

Do you think Ernest Hemingway turning over in his grave????

I was reading responses to a subject on declawing. Girl Humans jaw dropped. She read it to Male Human and he did the same. I want to know your thoughts!!!!
A lady replied that she has always had the extra toes removed off Poly-dactyl (Hemingway cats) so it did not create problems. We have had at least 5 in the last 10 years with the oldest being over 12 + yrs. Am I missing something???? Not removing the extras???? The only thing I could see is maybe Mr. Z our 7 toed kitty, may never have disappeared without a trace. She considered it a normal thing to remove them. I have never in all my years heard of this practice. These cats a super hunters and they were placed on ships coming from Europe for that very reason. Please respond.

This is a terrible thing to do. I am glad she isn't my mom. I love having extra toes.

OMC! NO! That is such an awful thing to do. I have an extra toe on each of my four footies and mommy would never take them off me. I am shocked that anyone would be so mean!!

OMC that is just terrible. My mummy does not agree with any of this and is so shocked about the removal of extra toes.

Mummy has only met one cat with extra toes at the cattery in the last 4 years and she could not wait for a look. She found it so interesting and would love a cat with extra toes.

So glad we do not have her as our mummy can we report her for doing this? animal cruelty??
