#15, dont be so stupid, she didnt just get up and decide oh today ill go to the /humane/ society to kill my perfactly fine cat. Obvoiusly it was sick and probably suffering.

Sometimes you don't have a choice in euthanizing a pet. Or rather, you have a choice between sending your pet to sleep or letting them live in excruciating pain. One of our cats had cancer, and near the end it was painful for her to even walk. We had to euthanize her. The lady probably wasn't crying out of guilt, but out of sadness for the choice she had to make for her beloved pet.

If an animal is suffering that greatly, do you really think that euthanization is not a humane option? I believe that animals have a soul just as much as people do and that if they are hurting, they should have the right to choose their fate— that may seem stupid since our pets can't really verbalize such things, but if an animal becomes outwardly depressed and obviously in great pain, it's pretty likely that their will to live is gone and that the right thing to do is to let them go peacefully.

An animal isn't a kid. Would you want to suffer a slow death instead of just simply die in peaceful way?

In some places in Europe, I'm not sure but I think I'm thinking of Sweden or whatnot, assisted suicide is legal. It's when the person simply does not want to live but cannot end their own life. For example, they are completely paralysed from the neck down, or they do not have the strength to do so. Assisted suicide is illegal in most countries in the world, but it still happens, for example a parent who cannot bear to see their child suffer. When the child has a destructive illness, it is going

@ #6 - Hey, bastard, you should know that its better to have your pet euthanized instead of it suffering! The poor cat is lucky that, if it had been very sick, he/she was put down without the pain from suffering. @ OP - The cat is probably hunting mice in the sky now, though, so cheer up, OP.

Stop assuming that our intentions are cruel. If the animal looks completely miserable, can't walk, is in extraordinary pain and is 14 years old with back problems (grandparents dog), then it probably does not want to live anymore. Nor would MOST (not all) creatures so we put them down. We simply want what's best for them as they do for us. If you honestly think that everyone wants to live that badly you are a very naïve individual.

You're an idiot. We live on a farm and I pet-sit. Recently, one of my regulars put her 15 y/o pit down because he was unable to get up, wouldn't eat (Was losing a lot of weight). he was deaf and had cataracts, rendering him nearly blind, having to be hand fed and given water with a spoon. He had no quality of life, and was on a cocktail of drugs just to keep him alive. Took care of him for years, and I was glad to see him go peacefully. Around where I live killing farm animals is no big deal (f

I had my cat euthanized because he had a collapsed lung from asthma. I guess I should have just let him suffer for 3 days barely able to breathe. Euthanizing is the most responsible thing to do.
