you have decided to put your pet to "Sleep?" I have 19 years old cat who has lost his control to use litter box. My children are 9 and 7 years old., so, they know what it means to take the cat to a vet to get him euthanized. I had other cat who was also about 19years old (in human year) that past at home last summer. My kids saw how I took care of him as he deteriorated over a week, and finally died in my arms in early morning. The kids saw him after he died, to say the final good bye. My husband buried him in our garden, and planning to make a stepping stone as his grave marking. I am in a conflict to take a life of this cat with my decision, and not let him die naturally at home, like I did with the other one. What would you say to your child/ren, if you were in my shoes?
Thanks for reading,
