Is your furry soulmate still enjoying life? Is your furry soulmate in pain? How do you know when to say goodbye and let your furry soulmate go? Ugh, I really really struggle with this one. How about you? For both my cats, Security and Graceson, they died before I had to make that decision. However, looking back, I seriously doubt whether I should have made the decision to put them out of their misery and pain sooner? What do you think? Some people are adamantly opposed to putting down an animal. They believe in letting nature take its course. Others believe it is cruel and unusual punishment to let an animal suffer. Hmmm.
