No I would not wish for myself or any one a long painful death .<quoted text>
In that respect, they *are* like people.
And like people, they can get bored and lonely. Unsure what to do when they're elderly, sick and terminal. We have no problem euthanizing them, why can't we extend the same courtesy to homo sapiens? With their permission, of course.
Personally I don't fear dying as much as I fear lingering in pain and wishing "God" would just kill me. Legally speaking, my sick goose won't be cooked until I take my last long exhaling breath and am legally declared - she's gone, may she rest in peace.
That make sense to you? I wouldn't wish that on enemy, let alone someone I love.
We have two cats ..one relatively normal
The other I took in to save ..But I have no idea,what I'd do if she
Got sick ..unless,she passes,out she won't let you catch her ..if you try to hold her ..really bad scratches,..on hubby ..I don't try lol.
And she can hide ...no idea where .
But my sweet puddy our cat for sixteen years,..I still cry ..I held her as she died at the vet ..
