Our expert says:
This is always a difficult decision to make and one which only you can make. As pet owners we feel the loss of an animal almost as much as a person and it will be sad when your old cat dies. However you need to weigh up what is your discomfort and pain and what is his. Sometimes we selfishly hang onto our pets because we can't let them go. On the other hand spending a few more weeks cleaning up after him may not be so terrible, especially if he's not in pain or discomfort. You can ask the vet to come and euthanase him at your home, where it will be peaceful and you can say goodbye in a comfortable environment. It is a sad time - enjoy your last times together.
