ok so we have this cat in my family. A 17 year old Persian cat. He was around before i was and we all love him alot. But the average cata lif expectancy is like 12. My cat lhas outlived that by 5 years but the poor cat cant breathe ge opens his mouth to bbreathe and he takes only a small amount of air. He cant move and he never eats (2 weeks a go he was a damned glutton). so were thinking of putting him in putting him to sleep(euthanacy). Thoughts


Please keep seriuse answears.

Put him out of his misery.

It's for the better, I had my 17 year old cat put down a few years ago, wasn't nice, but she was suffering and unhealthy.

But I have to admit, she was a bitch, and I wanted her to die.

If he's suffering, and it's not something that can be cured, then I'd say put him down.

wat

Have you seen the vet, there might be medication for him. He wont live much longer though unfortunately.
#6
yes, if your cat is in pain you should put him out of his misery, provided he can't be cured. its the kind thing to do.

I don't really like the idea of putting an animal down, I mean you wouldn't do it to your gran if she was in pain would you? Either way though, it does look like it's innevitabley gonna happen shortly. I guess it's more a question of would you prefer to wait and be more prepared to lose something you love a little more or get it over with now?

Yeah, its' the right thing to do. Euthanizing it will help it out, for it cannot breathe or eat. 17 years is a Hella of a long time for a cat alone, so i think it's time, or you could let it keep on suffer then die a horrid death. You decide

+2. The same happened to my first dog two years ago, I loved that animal more than most people I knew, we put him down. It's better than having him suffer. I'm so sorry to hear about your cat

the only prob know its that its Sunday. No vets are open today for euthanize. So he'll have to wait till Monday but I'm afraid he dies before Monday arrives(what am going to do with the body)

Put him out of his misery. It's best for you to not remember him dying, and its best for him as he has little pain

What im gona say next is by no means presumption or me trying to show off.

My father decided ge wanted a 2000km2 terrain to build a house. But he decided he wanted no backyard. i have NOWHERE to bury it. there only this small place. but my dog lives there and he will probably unearth the cat

Yeah man, put the cat down. Sorry to hear about that. But it's that guys time to go. He's lived a long life, 17 years.

Sorry man that's sad to hear, dogs and cats are awesome, hate putting them down, but at times its for the best.

dang, my cat and dog died the same year as each other, the dog got ran over and my cat had to get put down because she was crippled from arthritis, she didn't want to go it's took 3 injections, that was a hard time.

just think would you like to live in that state and be kept alive?

i think it's for the best, you quite obviously love your cat, and ending it's pain would be a very brave and loving thing to do, it's unfair on the cat really it can't do anything to help it's self out.

sorry dude. lifes tough sometimes.

it's still your decision. do what you feels right.

I say you think this over with your family not the pit...although I am surprised that there's alot of serious answers here.

I would say if it can't be cured and is just living in pain, the kindest thing you can do is put it down.
#26
I'm sorry to hear about it, but you should put him down. No point clinging on to what he used to be, set him free, y'know?

No?

I'd say put it down, personally I wouldn't be able to let my dog being put down, but if she's in much pain, it's the best thing for her to do.

Is that question supposed to clear the persons mind of any doubt that euthenasia (for animals and humans) is wrong?

Personally, if my Gran was having a slow, painful death, then I would prefer to let her die peacefully.

But if you want to cling onto something at the expense of its well-being then that's your choice.

Get it put down, its better for the cat and better for you in the long run, what type of cat is it though, life expecancy of 12 seems quite short, my realtives all have pets and some of their cats are older than me,

even if it uspets you at first, its best for it to be down, my gran won't get her dog put down when it needs to be and its awful, the longer you wait the worse it gets
#31
As sad as it is, I'd have to say you need to put him down. I understand that you're family loves the cat very much, but if the cat is going through misery and pain, it's in the best interest of both your family and the cat to put him down and allow him to go on to a better place.

+1, its painful to put an animal down but its for the better, my dog was writhing in pain on the floor when we put her down, she had like 6 different diseases, it was sad as hell since shes been in the family since i was 2

Ask the vet what he thinks, my old cat was doing the same thing before we had him put down.
#35
Yeah, I had a cat that was like 19 or 20 years old and we had to put her down. She was so old that she couldn't retract her claws anymore, so she looked kinda like a dog clacking around on the kitchen floor. And she was surprising agile at times, for being so old. I snuck up on her and poked her tail with my foot, and it scared her so bad that she did a backflip. And she used to complain loudly when crapping.

Somewhat disturbing...
