Upholsterers would win and veterinarians would lose if San Francisco's Board of Supervisors decides to purse a recommendation to ban cat de-clawing in the city.
The procedure, which removes the last knuckle of a cats toes, is popular with cat owners who like their furniture.
However, it's called "barbaric" by animal rights activists, and is banned in many parts of Europe.
And we all known how much San Francisco wishes it was actually in Europe.
Veterinarians don't like the measures, because de-clawing is big business.
Though of course, cat owner bent on ripping the claws off their cats could just go to Oakland and smuggle the nerf-like cat back across the bridge.
The board could vote on the issue this year.
