Occasionally, the decision making that surrounds euthanizing a pet is pretty straightforward. In other cases, however, it can be hard to know what to do.

Maybe some will think I am evil for not doing this, but I take my dogs home, fix them a comfortable bed on the floor beside me. I get down on the floor with them and hug and kiss them and tell them how much I love them and I stand watch 24/7 right beside them. That is the only way I can deal with this. Thank you Vic

I knew that my sweet Isabella was not going to make it. She had lost so much weight. She finally got to were she could not walk or even eat. I made her a soft bed and put her beside mine. I told her how much we all loved her and how we would miss her. I talked to her telling that it was ok to go. I named all of the people that were waiting to meet her, Grandpa George, Uncle Claude, all of my animals before her, etc. We put her in the sun because she always enjoyed the warmth of it. I will always remember her looking at her sister Patches the night before. They both knew what was about to happen. It's been over a month now and I miss her more every day.I adopted another cat from the pound. The funny thing is, he does some of the same things Isabella use to do. From the first time I held him I felt a connection to him. I feel like Isabella directed me to him. I could not face putting her down. She was at home with her family when she went to kitty Heaven. And I know that she is watching over me now.
