        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.
                                                                   LBD06056-04-9
