We have all heard some of the reasons onychectomy is evil: It as a barbaric as cutting people’s knuckles off. Cats end up miserably painful and unable to walk and jump for the rest of their lives. . No reasonable cat would willingly choose to have the procedure done. . Vets have only gone to school for, like, 20 years or so, and are obviously incapable of making intelligent decisions.
