Hi Tiffany,

I am so sorry your boy is so ill that you are faced with the most awful decision a cat owner ever has to face.

Unfortunately, there is no safe or humane way to put a cat to sleep at home. Human drugs can cause him to suffer and linger for days. I know you would not want that for your fur baby.

May I suggest you call a mobile vet who will come to your home and help your baby cross the Rainbow bridge in safety and comfort?

If you need help locating a housecall vet, please send me your zip code and I will help in any way possible.

I wish you all the best and pray things go well.

Dear Tiffany,

You are more than welcome. It was a pleasure to "meet" you. Of course, I wish the circumstances were better..

I pray things go well.

If I can help in any way, anything please do not hesitate to reply.
