St Louis Makes De-clawing Cats Illegal


The Board of Alderman of St Louis, MO on Friday voted 21-1 to approve a measure to prohibit the declawing of cats.

The bill, sponsored by Alderman Christine Ingrassia, D-6th Ward, would make it illegal for veterinarians in the city to conduct such operations unless medically necessary for the animal.

Ingrassia has described the surgery as “really intrusive” and “painful.”
