AITA for threatened to break up with my girlfriend if she declaws our three cats.

Many don’t view animals as being equal to people. So the threshold for what is considered abuse is much different.

Some say it’s humane to spay and neuter dogs and cats, our community has an overpopulation problem with stray cats and pays to neuter/spay if you catch one and then Release it.

Others say that cutting off genitals is inhumane.

All depends who you ask, but most animal lovers side with genital mutilation.

Thousands of years ago dogs and cats were wild animals but humans took away the uniqueness of their species by making them subservient to us so we could have companions.

If you can get past having a species true nature subverted for millennia for our selfish companionship desires, you can get over another persons decision to declaw.
