Dear pet owners,

if one has two cats that were never seperated and the first one has to be euthanised, would it HELP if one took the second one along to the vet? Both to keep company and to let her sister disappear without a trace or "explanation".

Naturally I considered that then the vet might be traumatic, since there's not enough time to go home after the lethal injection, and if that first and only experience with death is worse than forever waiting for her not to return.

But even those of my older lady acquaintance, who were not close and jealous and all, could not cope with the other suddenly being gone, and there is no way to TELL them that the other will not come back. The survivor is still freaking out a month later
