What is a humane way to kill a cat?

My cat is nearing the end of her days and the vet has advised me to put her down. He told me the cost of the euthanasia and I recoiled, holding my chest as I fell backward.

"Let me think about this, Doc", I said as I made a quick exit from his office.

All the way home I thought about my suffering cat and also about the cost of the vet bill, which I considered exorbitant. As I pulled into my driveway and saw my cat peering out my window and excitedly wagging her tail at my approach I knew what I had to do. I had to kill her myself.

But how?

I walked into the house and loaded my shotgun. She was at her watering bowl, innocently lapping a drink of cool water, and I place the barrel at the back of her head and begin to squeeze the trigger. But... I thought of the mess and glanced at my paper towel dispenser and noticed an inadequate supply of towels to clean up after such an event.

I placed the shotgun back in the closet and began to muse about other methods. Hanging? Yes, I figured I would try that. I made a noose out of an old shoelace and tied the apparatus to the back of a ladder chair. I picked up the cat, placed her head in the noose, and let her drop.

I had miscalculated the length of the lace and the cat landed on all fours on the floor, looked around in a confused manner, and took off running until the lace tightened and snapped her back toward the chair. I untied the rope and considered poisoning. I placed some anti freeze in her water dish and waited. Four hours passed and she approached the dish on multiple occasions, but never took so much of a sip. I think she suspected foul play.

At this point I was exasperated and out of options.

That is where you come in, my A2K friends.

How do you kill a cat?
