Does anyone recall any discussion by Seth about the euthanasia of pets? I recall Seth saying that they choose to live with us for the different sort of experience they will have. I am struggling with the likelihood of euthanasia right now. I have an 18 year old very loved cat who is blind, quite deaf, very confused wandering around the house lost, and in spite of having 3 litterboxes is now peeing on the hardwood floor.
Is it wrong? Who am I to hasten his dying process? It feels wrong in that if he were ready to die, maybe he would just do so. But then I consider that a blind and confused cat in the wild would no longer be able to hunt and would die of starvation or thirst. Am I helping him move on to a new stage of his ‘life’ by euthanizing him?
Am I prolonging his life for me because I hate the idea of him not being with me? What is his quality of life if he is confused most the time?
If anyone can recall anything Seth says on this matter I would certainly appreciate it.
