So I spent all day today hanging in different emergency rooms and hospital lobbies waiting to find out the prognosis on my kitty. My God you have no idea how attached you are to your animals until their lives are threatened.
It is interesting, as the vets are asking you all the questions needed: Would you like to euthanize if he goes in to cardiac arrest? Would you like to euthanize if he slips unconscious during the blood transfusion? Euthanize, euthanize, euthanize. All I was thinking to myself was, “no!” this little guy deserves as much of a chance to life as anyone.
I refuse to believe he is any less entitled to a shot as you or me.
It was a knee jerk reaction, really. Give him every opportunity to pull through as possible. It feels like my baby is sick. He can’t tell me what is wrong, he just cries because it hurts.
But I have a belief he will be ok. When we left the hospital he was stable and sitting up. A far cry from this morning when he couldn’t even hold his head up.
So to euthanize or not to euthanize? Interesting question. When and under what circumstances? Humane or violent?
Would love to hear your thoughts on this!
