    Vet's office will do it, but it's not cheap. If you have the stomach for it, you might consider *gulp* poisoning the cat yourself, just choose something that will let her go to sleep and not wake up so there's no pain. I can't offer any advice on what to use though... It seems that you have a good peice of land, so at least that way you can give her a decent burial, unlike what the vet usually does which is send them off to the incinerator in a plastic bag full of a dozen other pets. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif Not too dignified...

    The vet just uses an overdose of barbituates to put an animal to sleep. It's called Pentobarbital. Phenobarbital is a medication for seizures, if you could find some of that it would probably do it, but would take a rather large dose. I would just go to the vet. It's never fun to put an animal to sleep /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Yeah, it's Rafter, he's seriously ill, he has the poopies and now he can't control himself and everytime he gets up from wherever he was sitting in the shop he leaves a lil dollop of poo on the floor, kinda funny at first but he's gonna need to start cleaning himself and getting better or he's gonna have to be put down... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    They only do that if you don't ask for the body back. When I had my dog put to sleep, I was in the room with her and after she was "asleep" they carried her out to my car and I brought her home and buried her in my backyard /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    daamn dood... that sux in the worst way. Rafter kicks ass. Maybe the Vet can help him out, get him healthy again... Cats are amazing creatures, he may just snap out of it. remember, a cat is more likely to suffer a life threatening injury when falling/dropped from less than 6 feet than if dropped from 20. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif In Rafters case, a 30 foot fall from the top of the shop.

    Is that why his name is Rafter? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif And I don't see why pooping all over the place is cause to put an animal down...if so we should have had our dog put to sleep 10 years ago.

    When I was a kid, any animal we had (horse, dog, cat) that came up sick, or in the case of the horses, lame, would get a .22 behind the ear if they didn't recover. It is a very humane way to put an animal down. Don't know how sanitary that would be w/ a cat, but the cat wouldn't feel a thing.

    I agree with a few of the others. A bullet to the back of the head is definitely the way to go.

    A round of .22 costs like $.03. I can't imagine paying a vet to do the same thing.
