I have a 17 year old siamese cat who has been going down hill for a couple weeks now. She has lost a lot of weight and can no longer stand on her own. I have not taken her to the vet because she is horribly traumatized by any visit there and I understand this is an age related progression. I know she is dying but is just very weak and doesn't seem to be in too much pain. I want do this in the kindest of ways, at home and where she is comfortable. Without sounding like a horrible person, is there any way to help this process along and do it peacefully? I did call the vet and couldn't get an appointment until tomorrw but I don't want anything done to prolong her life, which they will do. I also can not afford to pay the emormous estimation of fees they gave me. I am just sick about this but she can no longer walk or stand. Please help me.
