Morbid. There are people like me who are awesome with cats and know how to help them when grieving. I have had one for the last 10 years that was freaking out because her human died. she is now happy and healthy. I fostered some and appropriately rehomed them. I know no vet I have gone to or worked for will put down healthy animals. it is fucked up as ang said. It isnt whats best. They would miss you but they can find a home and be fine after understanding and a period of time.
and yes we have run across wills like that and still refused.
I love my OH an awful lot, and was an absolute disaster while he was in Iraq. I was self-destructive (to say the least) and miserable. Would be worse if he didn't come home. But dammit, he can't decide to off me
Really, I understand the logic, but just can't possibly even begin to agree. If OH and I both died, the crazy black cat would probably need to be euthanized. I know someone (friends, family, bff, good friend who works at the vet and cried with me when we put Twiggy down, SOMEONE) would take him in, but he's a terror (his name is Voltaire but we call him "Terror" for a reason!), and would go apeshit. If he didn't chill out enough to be happy, then I hope they would put him down... but he deserves the chance, dag nabbit.
I miss my baby kitty so hard. I miss having that connection with a pet. I'm lonely for pet love.
Twiggy would have been perfectly happy to be re-homed, as long as they respected that she is now in charge. She would have mourned me for a day or two, then gone back to napping and throwing a fit whenever anyone tried to pick her up.
I keep the ones i could but I have 4 dogs and now 5 was 6 cats. Fostering doesnt mean home to home it means one home and when i foster the new family meets with them several times before going with them . The animals are more resilient then people realize. In a case like yours I would likely keep instead of rehome. You dont rehome some. yours would likely be like my maggie. Putting her in another home would have been fucked up. Some of us really do know what to do and I hope you would find someone like that.
You have mds anyway. I know ang and myself ( i dont know jessie) would definitely do right by your babies. Just dont die soon. that would suck.
anyway i appreciate your furbaby love.
I have no idea who gave me that last rep, but it was AWESOME! I lol'd. I'm not preemie so I don't know who gives me rep unless they sign it.
I'm bat shit crazy when it comes to them. Okay, for realz this time, no more moot.
At the bird rescue where I got my birds there are some that will stay there forever. If the owners have to give them up for some reason but ask that they not be adopted out he keeps them or if there are issues like they are violent, have been severely traumatized, etc. he keeps them. He has a couple birds that came to him from Katrina homes that are staying forever.
If you click on "sanctuary birds" down on the left there are pics and info on the birds that stay forever.
And the pic on the home page is one I took when he was at the library talking to kids about the birds.
Jake picked up a dead lady the other day whose cats had already ate most of her. Just sayin
*eaten* Im a rere today
I've been on a person who was still kinda alive and her cats already nommed on her a bit. Lesson learned - leave out at least a weeks worth of food for the animals if you're old. Because if you fall and nobody notices for a few days the Kitty's get hungry. And you're made of meat. :/
