In-home euthanasia or at the vet?
One of my kitties I fear is near the end. If he has to be put down, I don't know whether to do it at the vet or at home. I'm sure at home is pricier, but that part is not that important in the grand scheme of things.
Here is the real debate as I see it. The advantage to doing it at home is I can take my time, and feel more comfortable crying and grieving and saying goodbye in private. But the disadvantage is that for whatever spot I would pick to do it in the house, I fear I would always look at that spot and remember that pain. So if I did it at home, I'm thinking of doing it in the basement. Then there is the added debate (that I posted in a different post) about whether to let his brother either be present at the time or see him afterwards - if I were to go with letting the brother see him afterwards, I would rather do that at home. What are your thoughts?
