My cat is fifteen years old and has been declining in health. His teeth have been deteriorating rapidly to the point where they’re almost useless, and in the past week he’s barely eaten and has lost a lot of weight. Is it time to put him down? I don’t know if I can do it!
Sounds like it, unless they’re on the brink of inventing cat dentures.
I’m so, so, so sorry. My childhood dog died fourteen years ago and I still cry every time I hear that Hall & Oates song Maneater. (She was a little vicious for a cocker spaniel.) But you love him, and I know you don’t want him to suffer.
