Moves to ban the sale of fur, discourage cosmetics testing on animals, and end cat declawing are making their way through state and local governments from New York to California

IT WOULD BE GREAT TO PUT ALL THE OLD CAGES TOGETHER, TO MAKE ANIMAL PARKS, WHERE ANIMALS CAN RUN AROUND TOGETHER, WHERE THEY CAN NOT FIGHT WITH EACH OTHER. HAVE WEE GREEN PLACES, WHERE A CAGE MAZE CAN PROVIDE EACH ANIMAL WITH THEIR OWN SPACE. TREAD MILLS, TO COLLECT ENERGY.
I worked as a vet tech for several years, if done young enough it's not a major surgery and typically does not cause any issues (relatively low requests too). I've also seen people choose declawing their cats instead of giving them away or taking them to a shelter.
