The girl who declawed

You remember that girl who had those cats declawed? Well, she hardly speaks to me anymore, except for work-related stuff. We keep things civil, but it was pointed out to me that she had changed.

In the first two weeks following our argument, she seemed a little down in the dumps. Call me mean, but I'm glad I made her feel miserable for what she did.

I was on youtube a few minutes ago. Some person posted a video of their cat after it was delcawed, and there are some pretty heated comments both for and against. But this one takes the cake: "If it was inhumane, vets would not do it you f***tards"

I replied that it was banned in over 30 countries because it was considered inhumane. The reply?

"Well, in Canada and in the States it is NOT inhumane."

I really hate people like that...

I pointed out the difference between inhumane and legal, here's the reply.

"wow ... just cause people declaw there cats DOES NOT MEAN THEY DONT LOVE THEM!!!! every freakin cat ive had i got it declawed and i love my fricken animals to death !!!!"

Sure you do, but you apparently love your furniture more.

Here's the link to the video. Please flood it with disapproval. I need something to cheer me up.
