No Philosophy in Action Radio on Sunday

This Sunday morning, we’re putting doggie Mae to sleep for the aggression problems that I discussed here. At the same time, we’re also putting kitty Elliot to sleep too: his heart is definitely failing, and by keeping him alive, we risk him throwing a clot and thereby having a terribly painful end. My wonderful, wonderful vet is making a special trip out to our place on her day off to do this.

So Sunday will be a terribly day for me, and I couldn’t even think of broadcasting. I know that we’re making the right choice, but still, this is so hard.

  • Jackie

    I’m so sorry you have to go through this, it must be very hard. :-(

  • Amlan Gupta

    Very sorry to hear that Diana. Our two dogs are getting older and I’m dreading the days when we have to make the same difficult decisions. My condolences.

  • James

    I’m very sorry to hear that. I can only imagine…Hopefully you have some good friends to help support you through this!

  • William H. Stoddard

    Oh, Diana, that’s hard. It sounds as if you’re going the right thing . . . but going through that twice in the same day seems especially dreadful. It’s been hard enough for us to do that with one cat at a time. You have my sympathies. You’re a brave woman.
