Q. I think I need to euthanize y cat. I saved it off the road almost 9 years ago. The cat never learned to stay in letterbox. Now is self mutilating
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. Your issue sounds somewhat complicated, and if you're struggling with whether or not to euthanize your cat, I'd suggest opening a consult with a DVM to discuss all of the issues. I think this is the best way for you to get help evaluating your cat's quality of life.
A. Please have your cat seen by a veterinarian. They will be able to address your concerns and diagnosis the reason why your cat is harming herself. Drugs can be given to change her behavior if the self harm is stress or anxiety related. Your vet will be able to discuss her quality of life with you and determine the next step.
