        AN  ACT to amend the agriculture and markets law, in relation to prohib-
          iting the declawing of cats
 
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section  1. The agriculture and markets law is amended by adding a new
     2  section 381 to read as follows:
     3    § 381. Prohibition of the  declawing  of  cats.  1.  No  person  shall
     4  perform an onychectomy (declawing), partial or complete phalangectomy or
     5  tendonectomy  procedure  by  any  means on a cat within the state of New
     6  York, except when necessary for  a  therapeutic  purpose.    Therapeutic
     7  purpose means the necessity to address the physical medical condition of
     8  the  cat,  such as an existing or recurring illness, infection, disease,
     9  injury or abnormal condition in the  claw  that  compromises  the  cat's
    10  health.  Therapeutic  purpose  does  not  include  cosmetic or aesthetic
    11  reasons or reasons of convenience in keeping or handling the cat.
    12    2. Any person who performs an onychectomy, partial or complete phalan-
    13  gectomy or tendonectomy procedure on any cat within  the  state  of  New
    14  York  in  violation of the provisions of subdivision one of this section
    15  shall be punishable by a  civil  penalty  not  to  exceed  one  thousand
    16  dollars.
    17    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD06056-05-9
