Putting Down a Pet

Just found out from the vet that my cat only has 2-4 weeks left before we should seriously consider putting her down. She is 15-16 years old and has bone cancer. The cancer is getting progressively worse and she is struggling to eat. This sucks. I like her more than 99.9% of humans. Does anybody have any experience with putting a cat down? When do you know it's the right time? Do they show any signs that indicate they are in great pain? I had to put my dog down 5 years ago but have yet to put a cat down. Just wondering if cats are any different. Thank you all.

This is how I will do my cat when it's time. It's truly the quickest way to do it.

Both of mine got shots/IVs, and it was very quick and I presume painless. They got a heavy sedative first and then the infusion of something that stopped their heart. As noted earlier in the thread, it made me hope that humans have that option when my time comes, because I'm going to have a hard time convincing a doctor to shoot me with a .357.

I put a cat down last week. I just figured i'd like my cat to do the same to me when the time came.

Our cat made it easy for us. Some kids spotted him crawling down the sewer.

He was always an asshole.

It is, but not an easy thing to forget. IMO still better than terrorizing them by taking a trip to the vet.

Sorry Mrgig. Letting go is so hard to do. Going through it right now with my husky, well it's really my mothers husky but we got him when I was still living at home. Anyways, poor guy can barely get up and move on his own. I feel it's a matter of weeks at most before I have to make a move. What makes it worse is I don't think mom realizes the weight of his loss. Its one more memory that remains of my father as she and him picked him out together.

I feel your pain though. Be strong buddy.

Dang this day sucks.
My current dog is a chow chow mix. His body is yellow short hair like my yellow lab was. Can you please post a picture of your Lab Chow Chow mix to compare?

Thanks!

Don't any of you own a .22? I cant imagine the mess a .357 would do to a feline. There would be nothing to bury.

Unless being Shogun you would use a Katana.

UPDATE

She is rapidly shutting down at this point. Not eating very well, isolating herself and just not being real playful. The crazy thing is she loves going outside lately. In her first 15 years she would never set foot out there. Now she is out there for 30+ minutes. It is very good to see. However, Wednesday we will be taking her to the vet and it very well could be her last day. Doesn't look like we are going to get to the month


Thank you all for your comments and thoughts.

I fought 3 weeks holistically to keep my dog around before I pull the plug. He had pain pills. He lived longer than vet said he was going to live. He was living to keep happy me in the end.

That's kinda what Bubba (my 40lb weiner dog) did. Didn't act like he felt good for a while then one morning he acted like he felt like a pup again. Wanted outside, hung around, ate well. An hour or so later went to let him back in the house and he had laid down under the porch and was gone. Hope I'm so lucky.

We had to put our black lab (Dixie Snowball) down on Thursday. She would have been 12 on the second of June, so she lived a pretty full life for a lab. She had cancer as well, and had lost quite a bit of weight over the past couple of weeks and Tuesday and Wednesday she seemed confused.
We took her to the vet, and even though it was the right thing to do, it sure as hell didn't make it much easier.,
We had had her (or she had us rather) since she was two weeks old.

The "funny" thing is at the vet, she seemed at peace, like she knew what was going on (of course that's probably wishful thinking). I have had more than a few folks I was close to die in the past 7 years or so, (including one of my best buddies literally die in my arms in Iraq) but I broke down and balled like a damn baby at the vet.

RIP Dixie Snowball

I called it on my lab Razor about 13 (not my name), Sonia my mom's dog she was around 20yrs old, and Murphy last October about 8. It is always hard and it should be. Remember them.
