23 Scarily Cute Cats Showing Off Their ‘Murder Mittens’
We are so used to thinking our cats are adorable that we forget they’re actually descendants from big cats like lions and tigers, who are in fact very scary.
On Reddit at the moment there is a page called “Murder Mittens” where people post photos of the kitties showing off their scary but cute claws.
Some misinformed people think that it’s okay to declaw a cat, the people at Cats Protection explain: “Declawing your cat isn’t the way to go. In fact, declawing was outlawed in the UK by the Animal Welfare Act of 2006. Cat declawing is also illegal in many other European countries, as well as Brazil, Israel, Australia, and New Zealand.”
The reason people declaw cats is to stop them from scratching the furniture, but what they don’t realise this unethical act is a form of mutilation and the cat will never be the same again. They don’t seem to realise that cats can be trained to leave the furniture alone and even doing the simplest thing, like creating a scratch post for them, would make a difference.
I think a few scratches on your furniture is a small price to pay to ensure that your kitty lives a happy and healthy life.
