I have a Persian cat named Teaser who is 15 years old.
The problem is that my wife has become allergic and the doctor says that if we keep Teaser, the risk is very high that she will get asthma.
We do not have someone we want to take over Teaser, so we have decided to put him to sleep, but it feels very difficult, so my question is, that in this difficult decision have we acted correctly against Teaser?
Teaser has been everything to us for 15 years so it is a difficult decision…
I totally feel you. It’s a difficult decision to make, I know.
In your case, it is the case that you have lived with your Teaser during a long cat life and a dignified life will have a dignified end. Relocating such an old cat is not right for the cat, it would be very painful for him.
I understand that it is completely impossible to have a cat when you have developed allergies so your decision is right in this situation.
I would advise you if it is possible to ask the vet to come to your home and give Teaser the syringe, then he does not have to worry and leave home but can fall asleep calmly and nicely in his usual environment.
Hope now that you are doing well.
Of course, I understand that you will miss Teaser, but then you must try to remember all the good times and that you have had the privilege of being a part of his life.
If you want to write and tell me how it goes, I would love to.
