You didn’t know about the Fabulous City the Kitty book?

City the Kitty is ginger muse to Lori Shepler, who is a professional photographer. Lori’s superb pictures of City have gained him a huge Instagram following and made him a social media star.

As well as ginger polydactyl good looks, City stands, with his mom Lori, in the front line of the fight to ban declawing in the USA, inspired by Jennifer Conrad, DVM – Founder and Director of The Paw Project. We stand with City in his fight against declawing.

What is Declawing?

From the Humane Society of the United States:

“People often mistakenly believe that declawing their cats is a harmless “quick fix” for unwanted scratching. They don’t realize that declawing can make a cat less likely to use the litter box or more likely to bite. Declawing also can cause lasting physical problems for your cat.”

“Medical drawbacks to declawing include pain in the paw, infection, tissue necrosis (tissue death), lameness, and back pain. Removing claws changes the way a cat’s foot meets the ground and can cause pain similar to wearing an uncomfortable pair of shoes. There can also be a regrowth of improperly removed claws, nerve damage, and bone spurs.”

Where did City the Kitty come from?

Things were at a crossroads in her life when Lori encountered City. When he finished turning her world upside down Lori was facing another direction, with City taking over social media and jumping paws and claws first into the declawing debate (graphic warning).

“Claws are part of what makes me so HANDsome”

City and his mum wanted to give something back to the supporters who have helped them, and who have made declawing a national issue in the USA. So they created this wonderful book packed with stunning images of the polydactyl rock star who will charm you with his looks, his amazing agility. [You can also buy a copy of City’s book here.] City can also be found on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Facebook.

With the news that Denver has banned declawing, the huge amount of work that City and his photographer Mom are doing is beginning to take hold so, please, join us and support City.

    We love City and Lori! They work so tirelessly to ban declawing and were so open to sharing my story of Kitty and my interactions with the AAHA about declawing. Of course, we love Erin and her human too … we’re fortunate to call them good friends who always make our day … hmmm … EXACTLY like the Dash Kitten crew!

    Longtime fans of City and his work on behalf of cats everywhere. We were created with CLAWS for very good reasons, and our servant provides scratchers and cat furniture THROUGHOUT our domain for that very purpose, as well as grooming services, however unwanted, with special cat-friendly claw clippers. 😉

    Nice to see she is working on banning declawing. People have no idea, and should all have to help in the vet operation room with the procedure just to see how sick it is.

    What a lovely Christmas gift this would make for a cat lover! Declawing is such a huge issue, I’m glad there are a few products that can help like Soft Paws, and ways you can try to minimize clawing like having multiple scratching posts.
