It is sad to lose a love one. For me, I prefer to have the vet come and allow my cats to go peacefully to sleep while in familiar surroundings and with love ones around.

I held Nico in my arms as the vet injected the sedative and he went to sleep. It was the ... minutes later he was asleep. Then he injected the stuff that stopped Nico's little heart. I have some pictures but

Well, yeah, I would, too. Having had to do it 4 times so far in my life, I've never had a vet who will do that. My current vet, to whom I've paid thousands of bucks, will not do it either. I suppose they can't because then other people might expect it, too, and it wouldn't be "cost effective." In a rural area, maybe, but here in the greater Phoenix area, do you have a vet that will do this? Tell me who it is so I can go to him.

Actually there are some in the Phoenix area that will do it. My parent's had one of their dogs put to sleep this way. They came out to their house, administered the shot and that was it. I'll have to ask them which one they used.

Death is not the end. I believe only the body dies and that the being comes back in the next lifetime. I think OP's cat will stick around for a few days and then move on.

I hope your wrong, if only for the slight but real chance that it might end up in your twisted hands. What will YOU come back as when it's your turn to fall off the conveyor belt, CP? Let me guess... A cat. Wishful thinking, since catz have twice the intellectual fortitude that you have. A dung beetle is much closer to your colour, geekzoid.
I think the relevant question to ask is not what you would come back as next time... It's.. what did you come back as now? My opinion is a flower of the petunia variety. Flaming pink, I should think.

Can we not use the word kill when it comes to euthanizing?

Whether you call it mercy killing, euthanizing, putting down, putting to sleep, or just killing, it comes down to the same thing doesn't it? We all love our pets.
I remember being confused as a child when our cat Pokey was hit by a car and had to be euthanized. My mother had my sister and I in the car and told us that Pokey had to be "put to sleep". Of course I asked when she would wake up and when I found out she was going to be mercy killed I can assure you that the euphemism "put to sleep" did nothing at all to make me feel better. In fact it made me feel a lot worse because for a couple of minutes I really thought my cat would sleep, somehow get better, then wake up.

Not that I intend to start up a conversation with you IBen, but I'm just curious where ya' been since last October when you were last trolling this group (or any group for that matter)? Jail? How was Bubba?

Emotion: wink

Yes, unfortunately I was in the calaboose. The charge: Hate-crime. You can guess the rest.
Now... Don't bother me any further. I'm busy.
