Albany Bulb

    These photographs are just a few I have taken over the last ten years at The Albany Bulb, also known as the Landfill, the Waterfront and just The Bulb. It is a place I feel passionate about. That much is obvious. There are many of us who believe that this piece of the much hyped Eastshore State Park should have been left untouched and unmanaged - because it is a unique example of what happens when a place naturally and organically self regulates. But the dogma of 'preservation' and 'conservation areas' 'resource protection', 'habitats' and 'liability' overrules all individual identity. They cannot leave anything untouched, un-designed. It is as if if they (the park planners) didn't make it, it has no value. Rules, guidelines, regulations, interpretive signage, fences, safety, sanctioned art - it leaves nothing to the imagination. That is what the landfill meant to us - a place of unlimited imagination.

Dr. Marie.

I do believe the day is coming where we will not declaw any cats at all. I have done thousands of declaws and *rarely* have a problem, but when I do have the occasional cat with declaw-related issues it is horrible.

I have noticed a great drop in the number of declaws that I have been asked to do. I used to commonly do 3-4 a week and now I may have 1 every 2 months. This is good!

NOTE FROM JILL: My posting this comment does not imply that I know anything about 'Dr Marie' nor about the quality of the advice she gives.


Right on, Jill - when I visit someone who has a declawed cat or hear that they are doing so, it is all I can do not to spring upon them with my own claws right then and there.

And nobody is requiring "Dr Marie" to do the declaws - how can any veterinarian with a conscience do them, instead of taking the opportunity to educate their clients? I'd rather lose a client than compromise my soul by perpetrating such cruelty on another creature. I don't understand that way of thinking, unless it's "better me to do it than someone else more likely to botch the job."

It is my understanding that the practice has been banned in the UK for many years - is that correct?
