ronaprhys: A quick scan of the article didn't really bring up anything douchey. Seemed like someone who faced with the decision of what's the best thing to do, given all of the circumstances and the emotional issues that come with making that choice.Am I missing something? Or was this just subby trying to get another greenlight?
M-G: I've found my vet's office can get very dusty....
show me: Whenever someone said they were going to "put down" a cat I would envision them with a sneer on their face pointing at the cat saying stuff like, "You're a worthless, no-good, meowing little turd! The best part of you ran down your momma's ass and ended up as a stain in the alley!"
Mikey1969: Yeah, it's a tough decision, but it comes with being a pet owner. They can't make these decisions for themselves, so it's your job. Sometimes sooner is less selfish than later... I took my dog in last spring. We'd had him 12 years, and he was starting to develop kidney stones. A lot of them. We could have paid to have them removed, but it wouldn't have lasted long, and he would have had the issues come back over and over... Never seen anything as sad as the look on his face when the stones would finally break free, and he's suddenly accidentally peeing all over the floor. You'd have thought he'd just eaten the baby.Anyway, some people might think I made the decision to put him under just to save money and trouble, and that I was just being cheap, but things were never going to get better, and were only going to get worse. It's a tough call, but if you've had your pet that long, you should already be mentally prepared...

iheartscotch: Putting a pet to sleep is an intensely personal thing.Here, you've got a bundle of fur that you've had for years. They are a part of your family and you are a part of their pack.I've always thought that, when their quality of life is extremely low and they are in constant pain; you owe it to them to act in their best interest.If they can't ever get better and hurt all the time; that's when I think you need to say goodbye to your friend./ but, like I said; this is a very personal thing, and not everyone agrees about it
CarnySaur: Has anyone had a pet just "die in their sleep"? I'd like for the decision to be taken out of my hands just once, instead of having to go through all that trauma.
CheekyMonkey: Pfft. Putting down a pet gets easier every time you do it. The kids love a new puppy, so we get one every year, and put the old one to sleep. After 7 or 8 years, it's just like recycling last week's paper.

sweatybronson: Subby used an ambiguous pronoun - as written, the 'I' in the headline could either have meant 'I, the subby' or 'I, the article writer.'Either I, sweatybronson, am having no trouble being a douche today, Or I have spent way too much time tutoring for the SAT verbal section.
CrazyWhiteBoy311: This is rather timely for me, since my girlfriend and I are likely going to have to put our cat down in the next day or two. He hated me for the first 2 years we were living together too, but there is something lovable about a cranky bastard of a cat./Whole damn house is dusty.
noitsnot: Seemed medium douchey - like "gosh I was surprised to realize that I experienced normal human feelings".
