Re: best way to euthanize my cat
When I put my Dude to sleep, it was very peaceful. I was anxious, I'd never put a pet to sleep.
I brought him to the vet, we were alone in the exam room. I read something out of a book to him. The vet tech took him in another room. They gave him general anesthesia, like he was going for surgery.
They brought him back to the exam room, wrapped in a blanket. The vet administered the drug. Dude didn't move, at all. His heart stopped and he passed into the next life. I kissed his head, and said, "Goodbye my love." We had some more moments alone, then the vet tech took his body away, gently cradled in her arms.
It was hard, I spent the weekend in tears. A week later, I picked up his ashes, placed them in a handsome oak urn, and he rests at home on the fireplace mantle.
