My youngest cat is driving me up the wall.
Wow. That is tough. I've known people who began to keep the cat outside more often than not. But if she's declawed, that wouldn't be an option. I have seen other people bring a pet to a shelter and never look back. I don't know if I can do that though.
The dog I had growing up was very good all his life and we dealt with many problems when he go old. He would pee in his bed and just lay in it. He was undoubtedly scenile and despite everyone's advise my mum refused to put him down. He had other health issues. He ended up dying on his own.
I wish I had some advice for you. I remember getting steaming mad when he climbed on my bed and peed right in the center of it. I was ready to drive him to the shelter myself.
I agree it would be more humane, but I still don't want her remains.
I've given this
Yikes, those shelters really do take the cheap route don't they. Asphyxiation, doesn't sound like the way to go. I know it's tough to pony up the money for the vet too. I can't remember how much we paid for our dog. It was over ten years ago. Don't feel bad for not wanting to be present when she is put down. It's a very tough thing to go through. You did all you could do for her. It seems you tried everything to me as well.
Thank you, I know you are a huge animal lover too.
