One of the first things I educated myself on when getting ready to adopt my cat last year was the facts about declawing. Needless to say I'm against it 100%. It's encouraging that more people are becoming informed about this issue, and that there are a lot of educational materials out there. However, I recently became convinced that simply talking about it is not enough. I live in a country--namely, Canada--where declawing is still legal. So the ultimate goal is to make it illegal in Canada. So, I want to know what practical things I can do to help achieve this goal. What more can I do besides simply writing a letter to my local representative? What actions will generate the maximum impact? Is it better to focus on changing provincial legislation first? Are there similar efforts already under way that I can join, such as organizations or petitions? I'm looking for actionable items as well as your experience in this effort. Thanks.
