Is it wrong to let a pet depart life at home?
SoSo, our 12 yr old feline has Squamous Cell Carcinoma. It has given her a death sentence of 1-3 mos. She is on medications and comfortable. We opted out of the radical jaw removal and radiation/chemo, because it will not lengthen life and the cancer cells just rapidly grow right back. She is with her three brothers and feeds thru a tube, purrs when fed and enjoys being brushed. Why should we take her away from what little enjoyment she has just for convience sake? We're okay with the time it takes with her, we love her. I wouldn't kill my child.
Sounds like you've made your peace with this situation. If she is not suffering, do what feels best for you and her. If it gets to the point that you can't make her comfortable, take her to the vet to be put down. We just went through this painful experience with our 15 year-old Beagle. We were not willing to put her through extraordinary measures that would only frighten her and hurt her. But when we couldn't keep her comfortable we took her to the Vet. They were very kind to her and us, and it was peaceful. We brought her body home to bury her with our other pets. I miss her, but I think we handled the end of her life as well as possible.

I am curious as to why it is wrong. I do agree that is there is much more to a relationship than looks. What if you are 5 ft 11 woman and do not feel comfortable dating a 5 ft 2 man? Why is it shallow? Isn't a...
