I had a cat called piper just like this vets told me to put her down and she would only live for 6 mths,21 years later she was still here best cat I ever had!! This is just like my foster baby also pulled from the Cats make me happy humans make my head hurt shirt shelter. He is a shining example, like Raven here, that paralysis does not affect the quality of life. He plays, climbs, purrs non-stop and is just a joy.
I refused to put my baby girl down. They told me the Cats make me happy humans make my head hurt shirt same thing. She won’t have a good quality of life. She is one and a half years old, still smaller than most cats her age but she’s a spoiled, happy princess. Any vet that recommends euthanasia for an otherwise lively, bright-eyed creature who is still eating, playing, etc deserves to have their license taken away.
It’s recommended because most of the time the quality of life for the animal will be very low, the Cats make me happy humans make my head hurt shirt condition of the animal can result in a lot of suffering for them, and/or mistreatment from their caregiver. in many instances, it’s the more humane thing to do, but it’s nice to celebrate people who will actually put in the time and effort to care for a pet with a debilitating condition and give that animal a great life. not everyone can do that. it’s a choice that should be weighed responsibly in every situation.
