Is there a way to humanely euthanize a cat at home?
My BF's Siamese is about 18 and a real pain in the ass. The damn thing can't even see and shits on the floor.
I'm not mean to it, and don't want it to feel any pain. But I know my BF won't take her to the vet, ever. I don't want to spend the money myself. He won't because he will just wait for the stupid thing to keel over.
I would like to get rid of it while he's a work and then tell him the thing just went to sleep and didn't wake up.
Most vets or humane associations will do it pro bono if you can't pay.
If the animal is suffering, I will arrange to cover the cost myself if you'll reach out to me.
Yes, OP. Just ring the nearest humane society and tell them your BF is a cunt who doesn't care for his pet properly. They will euthanize your cat and hopefully do your BF at the same time.
You're BOTH evil cunts.
OP, when the inevitable breakup occurs, please contact me. I like your style.
Turn on The View on repeat and leave for 48 hours.
Oh wait, that's not humane.
Euthanize yourself first. You sound like a fucking psychopath.
Put on the Rodgers and Hammerstein song AN ORDINARY COUPLE. It will die within seconds.
There are many vets who make house calls for
This is a really shitty thing to do behind your BF's back. How would you like being deceived like that? Do you know what trust means?
Yeah, R8, but how many are willing to lie about the cause of death? They have something called "ethics" apparently.
Why does your Bf even have a cat if he cares so little as to cruelly "wait for the stupid thing to keel over"?!! Unbelievable! U both sound like heartless bastards.
Suffocate it with a plastic bag.
You do come off sounding like a creep op.
There will be an autopsy and an inquest.
The OP is a fool if he thinks his crime won't be exposed.
Right because all of us know now. DL db admin grab that IP now!
He loves the thing so much, but there is not point to us having it any longer, it's just a blind shitting machine. Still he will just let it go around for whatever reason.
I'm from TX and believe me this would've already been dealt with in the pasture with a .45 if we weren't in this goddamn apartment.
There is. My dad did it to one of my dogs, Bandit once. It was horrendous and in no way peaceful or relieving.
YOU need to move out of the apartment. You obviously do not care for/about any of its other occupants.
Putting down a pet is a job for a professional, OP. Start by having an actual talk with your BF about why it's time.
Also...I once paid to have one of my aunt's seriously ill cats euthanized. But she was becoming pretty demented (my aunt) and not able to decide on her own (is your BF demented?)
the cat is a living creature and beloved by your boyfriend. have the cat put down with the same care and attention YOU would like to be put down when your time comes.
Make a batch of hemlock tea. Drink it, and let the cat lick your lips
Put her in the dishwasher with the ferrets.
I despise you.
R23 that is hilarious.
A quarter of a sleeping pill will knock it out. Then it is a simple matter of laying it on the driveway and "accidentally" running over it in your car. If you act inconsolable enough your BF may even buy you some new jewellry to make you feel better.
R22 and R23 made me laugh.
Grind up one Tylanol, add to soft cat food. Cat will not wake up in morning. No pain.
DON'T LISTEN TO CHEAP BOYFRIEND, TAKE THE POOR ANIMAL TO THE VET AND DO IT HUMANELY SO IT DOESN'T FEEL ANY PAIN.
I swear to God, the morons who have pets in this sick world.
Liver poisoning is not painless, even in pets.
You should have an honest discussion with your boyfriend and also keep in mind this is a living creature. If you both decide to have the cat put down please make sure a vet does it. As another person said, treat the cat the way you would want to be treated. There are always consequences for the decisions we make in life, especially those that affect another. Make sure you do what is right. It may seem inconsequential now, but with most moral choices, the consequences can be far reaching.
I really hope this is an EST.
Mix up some Nyquil in its food. When it goes to sleep put it in the freezer.
OP - how sad you are to be inconvenienced by that thing that can't see and "shits on the floor". Instead of doing the right, the moral, the humane, you and your pathetic boyfriend allow that poor cat to suffer because you are too cheap and too cruel to give it proper care and attention. You have enough money to spend $18 a year on Datalounge and are too miserly to give that cat medical attention. If money is so tight though, (I highly doubt it's not) call the SPCA or the Humane League. Why in the hell would you post this question here? You don't care about acting in humane manner or you would not have ask such a horrible question. Are you that brainless and heartless to think you can euthanize a cat at home?
I just hope, OP, that you are treated with dignity, sensitivity and humanely when you might blind and or might shit on the floor during your elder years.
A hammer only costs about $5.
Make the cat take the gas pipe.
R23. You owe me a new laptop and another cup of coffee.
OP is a troll. Are animal cruelty threads the new rage at DL? Not fucking funny.
Especially Sick Topic, OP. Sure is working, though, isn't it?
Whether this is a joke or not, you're a piece of shit, OP.
OP's post has got to be the most horrid thing I've ever read on Datalounge. I have no words.
Please, R42. The things you bitches say to others on this board are much more cruel than this.
After all, these are people you're torturing here.
Can someone find that hilarious scene in the BBC comedy series about three desperate chicks where one kills the sick cat with a brick. I can't remember the name of the show but it's gut wrenchingly funny. It's a one word name.
Just remembered: it's " Pulling". Eps on YouTube but can't remember which one it was. Magic.
Hey, here's an idea, contact that woman who did in her 31 rescue dogs, and then.....
Toaster in the tub. Easy cleanup for when the cat inevitably shits itself.
Dump her body in Red Hook!

I know a way, but I'm not telling you. Go to a vet and get the cat euthanized. You can bring the cat home and fake that it died there. Your boyfriend never has to know. Just don't charge it on your credit card
Come on - I'm an animal lover and I think this thread is hysterical. Only the fat thighed, urine pantied fraus are taking this seriously.
luckily, this thread can be used if thid matter us ever investigated.
...and, it seems a number of other cases.
You better not harm that cat. He's under my protection. Just try me, bitch.
Hysterical ?? R51? You're having hysterics?? You should call 911. Perhaps they can bring you some hemlock. That should do the trick.
There could be a pit bull in the area.
Can somebody give me the context for R23's post?
It made me spit laugh but who would put ferrets in the dishwasher??
To hell with the mangy cat---how the hell can I do an at home euthanization of my 4 year old hellion? Dear god help me.
OP, I hope when you get old you become very disabled and a real pain in the ass to your caregivers who will just look for a way to rid themselves or you.
You are a piece of shit and that cat is much more important to the worth of this world than you.
If it's good enough for Caylee, it's good enough for the cat.
Just shut up R 60
Why is it so much more humane to take the cat out of the house (in a box? cat carrier?) to have a vet give it a shot (won't that hurt? and won't it be stressful for the cat to be in a strange environment?) than to just place a plastic baggie over its head and hold it there for a few moments until the cat expires?
I don't see the vet as necessarily more humane. Just more "acceptable" and more expensive.
I wonder if [italic]I[/italic] can think of anything...?
Animals like the taste of anti-freeze. Discovery ID has lots of episodes with people killing their spouses that way and its painless.
r61, The Hansens used chloroform on the cat in "I Remember Mama." The kitty was awake the next morning.
ASSHOLES. MAYBE SOMEONE WOULD FEELS THE SAME ABOU YOU
The writer from TX sounds like a total heartless
asshole. YOU should be taken to a pasture
It's just an injection to put the cat to sleep. Not expensive if you bury the cat yourself. The cremation of the body is what costs a lot.
Just bring it in. The poor thing is suffering and 18 is old for a cat.
Your partner probably doesn't want to say good bye.
Uh, R70? This cat's been dead for years.
I'm sure the cats dead by now, considering it's a 2 year old thread.
If you can't afford a vet, don't get a pet !!
Fuck you & your cheap bf
The cat rebounded and is doing fine.
OP, however, slipped on his own shit and cracked his head wide open. Oh well.
OP, give it some rat poison and throw it over the back yard wall into the neighbors yard.
it is sad that people kill animals however i see and can understand why cats fecal matter can cause brain eating disease and lets say you our raking leaves and a spore from their poop ends up in your nose, well guess what your screwed there is no cure for it and the death is painful. so here is the thing, ok i have cancer i for one do not need any more illnesses im fighting for my life as it is. so if i had no other alternative and had to take a stray cats life, then i think i would not a house cat but a ferel cat a wild cat a cat that spread dangerous diseases to humans that really many humans are not aware of
A sledgehammer and a handy sponge in a bathtub are all you need!
R1 is the complete antithesis of a classic DL R1.
Ah! I'm the OP of this thread, and I cackled when it popped up just now.
The cat is STILL fucking alive!
I had some pills leftover from my dog's surgery a couple of months ago (Acepromazine?) and ground the leftovers up. I put them on some peanut butter and tried to smear it around the cat's whiskers and mouth, she pissed on me and ran away.
I tried trapping her in her carrier but no luck on that either. Anyhow she's still around...for now! She's stopped grooming herself altogether and freaking stinks.
OP raises an interesting question: If you brought your pet to a vet to be euthanized, would the vet require proof the pet is really yours?
I had my dog put down when she was nearly 16 (as painful an experience as you can imagine). This was kind of an emergency situation, so I took her to an emergency vet clinic on a Sunday. But I don't remember the vet ever asking for proof I had the authority to ask that she be euthanized.
And what would proof be, anyway? Do people routinely keep sales receipts when they buy a pet?
OP, put some ghost pepper flakes in her Fancy Feast. She'll either die or shit lava for 2 weeks.
If she does die, don't bury her in the Pet Cemetary or she'll come back as a zombie.
What was the emergency R82?
One of the least funny DL threads yet.
OP, yes, if you can't bring to a vet, then pills are the most humane way. Grind the pills and put them in the cat food, make sure you put enough in to do the job.
r84, she had been diagnosed with cancer a month or so before and slid downhill rapidly after that. On the day I finally got the courage to have her euthanized, I found her sprawled on the kitchen floor in her own urine. She could not longer even stand up.
The OP is the one that should go jump off a cliff - what a selfish asshole you are. Heaven forbid you have to get up off your precious lazy ass and take care of an innocent animal from time to time. You sound like someone who is irritated when they aren't the center of attention 24/7. Killing a cat because it "annoys" you? I hope your soon to be ex boyfriend finds out what you are up to and sends you packing. Did it ever occur to you that the reason the cat is living as long as it has, is because it's been enjoying a good life with an owner that loves it? I've raised three dogs, all of which died naturally and peacefully in our home - we didn't need to "put them down" or just assume they were "suffering" as an excuse for not wanting to care for them in their senior years.
r88 is SOBBING as she types!
Didn't Dwight do it humanely by putting one of Angela's cats in the freezer? It's just like slowly going to sleep.
Oh, R88, bite me!
First of all, a blind cat who shits on the floor probably ISN'T suffering. Cats just don't share our hang-ups about bowel habits. He or she gets up, eats, shits, finds a warm, sunny spot to sleep in, and (hopefully) feels safe & loved.
When the cat finally dies, YOUR life is going to be living hell for a year or more, because a guy with a beloved 18+ year old cat is going to be *devastated* when he's gone. He's not going to want to do much besides cry. You'll be having sex, he'll see the spot where his kitty used to sleep by the bed, and be completely incoherent with grief for the next 37 minutes.
If he finds even the slightest bit of evidence to suggest you were the cat's proximate cause of death, you can BET that he'll be consumed with revenge on you. If you're lucky, he'll break up and try to get you arrested. If you're unlucky, he'll kill you in a manner that would shock the makers of "Saw II".
If you're *that* unhappy about living with the cat, do your boyfriend and yourself a favor, break up with him, and move.
Boy, you queers are all about peace and love until it cuts into your mani-pedi time.
A mechanic won't do an oil change for a pole-smoker = END OF THE WORLD! A cat is annoying, so let's kill it = Fabulous!
Clean your own backyard before you go hissing about how everybody else is oh so meeeeeean.
r93, I believe you are in the wrong place.
Put the poor creature into a cage then place cage in front of TV with that horrible Kardashian show playing, I know that you said you want a humane way but this should be relatively quick and the pain won't last. Also this works on most humans with half a brain that you want to get rid of.
You are a cunt OP. A cunt. Take the poor soul to a vet and don't ever, ever get another pet as long as you live. Cunt.
OP must be a Republicunt.
[quote]f you're *that* unhappy about living with the cat, do your boyfriend and yourself a favor, break up with him, and move.
Yes, because a 126 year old incontinent cat's shitty life is much more important than your life or your relationship. Cats and dogs should always be the priority. Life's most important decisions should always be based upon the needs of your pets. Remember they come first.
What wrong place is that, r94? Someplace where humans come together? r93 is probably a freeper, but he's got a point. Try listening.
It sounds like it's time to put the cat to sleep but I have no idea how to do it. I've never heard of anyone who has been successful in putting their cat down painlessly. It's your boyfriend's cat, let him take the poor thing to a vet, or you offer to do it for him.
The OP was made in NOVEMBER 2013.
I think the fucking cat may have died of miserable natural causes by now.
And fuck you too, R99.
Has OP posted on how he offed the diseased pussy?
lol@ r99. What an intelligent, relevant response.
Take a Midol.
I was just going to say the exact same thing to r102. Maybe she and r104 should get together and make more stupid, selfish people.
Place the cat in a plastic garbage bag.
Place the bag in the freezer.
After a few hours the cat will simple "go to sleep".
Remove from freezer when completely stiff and deposit directly into your trash bin.
No muss, no fuss.
You can even wear your heels and pearls while doing it.
Mrs. Cleaver, it is usually more appropriate to deposit the mortified frozen pussy into the trash bin on the morning of pick up.
Our co-op has a kitty gas pipe, don't they all?
R106 posts homophobic stuff in other threads. A troll.
Wow! You people are being really harsh towards this poor BF who just loves his cat and can't bear the thought of putting it down. Just because this bitch posted it in her own evil way, she didn't say he wouldn't take it because he's cheap. It isn't such a simple decision. If your father was old and blind and had to wear depends, does that automatically mean his quality of life is so poor he should be put down? Hell, my grandfather lost his sight and needs constant care but he doesn't want to die. Not any more than my 20 year old cat that is also having bathroom issues wants to die. I don't have the heart to put her down simply for my own convenience. Fuck all you assholes!
Is the cat white? Have a neighborhood African-American come over and play "Knock Out King" with it.
Just tell them, "Go over there and pick 'im out and knock 'im out!"
When African-Americans do this to human whites they only get a couple of years for "manslaughter" so the A.A. you invite over probably won't get any time for doing it to a white cat.
Cat's gone, the A.A. gets some racial hatred out of their system - everyone wins!
May I recommend renting a helium tank and affixing a little mask to its face? How are your acting skills, OP? You're going to have to act genuinely *SHOCKED* and sad over the event.
[quote]Animals like the taste of anti-freeze. Discovery ID has lots of episodes with people killing their spouses that way and its painless.
No…it's not painless.
I know it's over, but you can take it to a vet, have it euthanized, then bring it home and say she died. He'll never see the needle mark...
OP - you keep referring to the cat as "it" - it's a cat, don't call it "it"!
Donate it to a Chinese restaurant.
The cat is still alive. Her name is Muncie. She seems to be doing better, but I'm still going to do her old stank ass in when the opportunity presents.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
