Greetings RoSe!
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.
No I would not wish for myself or any one a long painful death .

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 .

Sigh ..

But my sweet puddy our cat for sixteen years,..I still cry ..I held her as she died at the vet ..

How To Give Your Cat A Pill 1. Pick up cat and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby.

Hold mouth shut for a count of ten. 5. Retrieve pill from goldfish bowl and cat from top of wardrobe. Call spouse from garden. 6. Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees, hold front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into mouth. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat's throat vigorously. 7. Retrieve cat from curtain rail, get another pill from foil wrap. Make note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines and vases from hearth and set to one side for gluing later. 8. Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat with head just visible from below armpit. Put pill in end of drinking straw, force mouth open with pencil and blow down drinking straw. 9. Check label to make sure pill not harmful to humans, drink 1 beer to take taste away.

Terrible analogy. Most people such as yourself who love cramming their faces with cooked dead animal flesh, would no doubt feel remorse if they had to kill their meal themselves.

How do you know what is constructive to a cat?
Getting to the root of why your cat is scratching something up is more important than your things, wouldnt you say? Perhaps putting more scratching posts around your place or playing with the kitty more would be more constructive (in your eyes).
I don't know you or the cat, but I'm just making suggestions,ink. I'd much rather talk about cats and dogs anyway. It's probably a subject we could actually find common ground on.
That cretin couldn't find common ground with the ground...even if she was buried in it.

When my dog wants to go to bed for the night she will keep going to the bottom of the stairs and staring back at me. As soon as I get up she'll bolt up the stairs and jump onto my bed.

I used to have a schnauzer that hated to be left at home when we went out. He would flip the kitchen trash can over and then smear any coffee grounds all over the floor.

When we adopted the schnauzer he had been with the same people for 7 years. At the shelter where he was left he was so depressed he wouldn't do anything, not even take a walk.

The most touching and heartbreaking thing I saw was the day I adopted my current dog and took her home. She had been abandoned on the road as a puppy and then stayed at the shelter for a few months. A lady adopted her and then returned her to the shelter...twice. The local animal control officer was also a shelter volunteer so she decided to foster the dog in her home until I came along and adopted her. As we were leaving the shelter, Minnie our new Chihuahua, stood on her hind legs to look out the back window at the volunteer, and she cried and cried until the lady was out of sight.

Anyone who says animals don't have a range of emotions is just plain wrong.

I'm a hunter. Remorse is not the emotion I feel when I fill my freezer full of deer steaks. More like elation. And the satisfaction of knowing that no one had to whack a cow in the head with a steel hammer on my behalf.

My point was, of course, that humans are not 'superior' to other animals...just different. The biggest threat to our existence is us... because we're not even smart enough to avoid defecating where we eat. No cat or dog or deer, would render conditions on our fragile planet so toxic to themselves - especially not on purpose.
Humans are idiots, compared to an eel, who would never even TRY to drill for oil in the ocean,

Yes, it was very amazing to learn just how social and emotional elephants really are, and how they babysit for each other and mourn their dead, etc.

Good evening all!

Well, Mom and Dad were both discharged yesterday afternoon and are both back at home now--Mom didn't have to go to a secondary rehab unit after all--much to her relief!
They're both going to receive P-T three times a week, at home, as well as periodic visits from an R.N. to make sure that they're adhering to their prescribed schedules.

My sincerest thanks to everyone who's wished us well, and I'm tentatively hoping that things around their house will continue to slowly "improve."

Best,
John.

Humans are not superior. And, of course, that's what Ink was trying to say with "different".

Obviously, she's never heard of the dolphins who help fisherman herd fish into their nets, without being "trained" to do so.

Of the fact that elephants hold vigil for the ones dying, and then bury them. They even do it for other animal species, INCLUDING humans, if they find them dead.

That chimps use tools, hunt in organized groups, even commit violent acts. Or that experiments and field observation have shown they are capable of empathy, altruism and self-awareness. Or that some of them have shown the ability to outdo humans on a memory test.

She has obviously never read about the gorilla, Koko, who learned sign language, showing the ability to think abstractly.

She needs to get off her high horse, and learn something. Like that humans are not the be all and end all of intelligence. If she thinks developing software, or being a CEO is the epitome of intelligence, she's even MORE witless than I thought.

Obama talks about getting one man bin LADEN as unproven with no real photos and videos, by MAKING ENSEMBLE MESSES FOR LOTS OF MEN--many LIVES AND volatile, bad effects IN AFGHANISTAN, WITH making CRAZY SPREE THERE, besides doing torture.

Because Obama talked about opposing Iraq, yet he has been supporting the current messes of constant violence there by appearing to say that is "mission accomplished"--which is equal to the existing violences there for too long.

As Not only Obama does that to beat his MOUTH saying AS HE SAID OPPOSING Iraq BEFORE, HE WANTS TO Create Another IRAQ as SYRIA. He wants to make lots of more innocent lives in jeopardy by calling red line in Syria. He wants to do the ridiculous abnormal things, for that is not the way to do things right, in modern times about Syria, as these are public issues and affairs, that Obama is beyond doing wrongly in saying Gay matter about Sochi Olympics.

Obama talks about getting one man bin LADEN as unproven, with no real story that is trustworthy, in addition to doing BADLY in AFGHANISTAN and Iraq, coupled with the unrealistic failure of same old mold Bush things on North Korea, Patriot Act and snooping and hacking on public, WITH CRAZY SPREE of awful acts with no basic thinking that makes any meaning and serves any purpose.
