Is there such a thing as palliative care for cats?
I ask because it seems the shelters and Humane Society are always full of older cats. And I would have no problem adopting them, except I wouldn't be able to afford big vet bills. But surely living out the last four or five years with a loving owner and being put down when it got sick is a better fate than living in a cage and being put down NOW because no one adopts it?
Pets: they're all furry cuteness and ethical dilemmas.
