Today’s blog is about pets in Canada. Please click the link, read the article, and watch the video. Thanks!
1. How do you feel about de-clawing cats? Is it unethical?
2. Are cats de-clawed in your home country?
3. Would you de-claw your cat for any reason? Why do you think some people de-claw cats?
4. Last week, we talked about animal rights. Do you think de-clawing goes against animal rights?
5. Some dogs have been de-barked. Please think about this and consider the same questions above (1, 2, 3, 4).
6. What are other things pet owners do to their pets? eg. a strange haircut
7. Do you think any of these things make pets unhappy? Do you think they care?
8. Should the government ban things like de-clawing and de-barking? Why?
