Getting back to his PETA ad OZZY OSBOURNE is warning people not to declaw their cats. The ad warns that when cats are declawed it also amptuates their toes and can cause nerve damage, a lot of pain and infection. The message is particularly special to Ozzy who almost lost some of his own fingers because of an infection he dealt with in 2018.
When cats are declawed, their claws and part of their toes are amputated. Veterinarians equate declawing with cutting off the last bone in a human’s finger, often causing nerve damage, infection, and immense pain — a message that hit home for OZZY OSBOURNE, who nearly lost some of his own fingers in late 2018 as a result of an infection.
OZZY OSBOURNE would say
“Amputating a cat’s toes is twisted and wrong. If your couch is more important to you than your cat’s health and happiness, you don’t deserve to have an animal! Get cats a scratching post — don’t mutilate them for life.”
There’s been almost 24 countries including Austrlia, England and Japan as well as New York state that have prohibited or restricted the practice. PETA instead, encourages people to keep their cats’ nails short and give them scratching posts. OSBOURNE isn’t the only celebrity endorsing PETA as he is joined by his wife and manager SHARON OSBOURNE, his daughter KELLY OSBOURNE,; MOBY; PAUL McCARTNEY, JOAN JETT and ROB ZOMBIE.
