Cat declawing is now illegal in West Hollywood. An ordinance against it has been upheld by a state appeals court. Cat declawing was sited as a “cruel and unusual procedure”, and veterinarians in West Hollywood face possible criminal charges if they perform the surgery. West Hollywood is the only jurisdiction in California that has such a law – it’s a very interesting part of town with quite a diversity of extroverted people.
So the Cat Lady is safe there on so many levels.
