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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

BBut your BF doesn't "do you in" just because your pussy stinks, so why should he because his pussy does? Seriously ... if you truly loved your BF any whatsoever, you'd love, or, at the very least, respect that he loves HIS baby. It's the exact same as him having an infant. Would you want to rid his child everytime it shit itself? Why is it so heartless to want to kill a human, but it's all fine & funny to want to kill aan animal? WTF... last time I checked, ANIMALS don't rape, molest, steal, deceive, lie, or do anything close to what HUMANS do, and it's a living thing, so HTF is a human's life MORE valuable? As far as the kitty suffering..... the actual euthanasia isn't what's so expensive. It's if you get the kitty cremated. If you opt to bury her yourself (or, in your useless case...someone else), it should be very affordable. If the Dr. is really nice, they'll let yo u do
