episode 25 - Declawing Cats - just say no

In this episode we're talking about something that we take very seriously -- Cat Declawing. We bring it up due to the recent bill being passed in New York to make it illegal to declaw your cat in that state, which would make NY the first state in the USA to do this. Making this practice illegal should be done in all states and there are plenty of countries that do not allow it -- we should be one of them. 

We also talk about games, mostly E3 but for once cat get some well deserved attention for this one.
