Personally, I hate it. I mean, who doesn't? But to me it feels like murder, like I'm euthanizing them or something. We dont do that to humans, so why do we do it to animals? It kills me.
My mom woke me up yesterday telling me that I need to take my rabbit, Lizzie (it's a boy), to the vet to put him to sleep, because she won't be able to watch them do it. Lizzie is 10 years old, which is significantly longer than rabbits normally live (they have a lifespan of about 6-8 years typically). Lizzie cannot walk and just lies flat like a pancake all day, and cannot eat or drink unless someone is holding him and helping him to do so.
So yesterday I put my rabbit to sleep at 1:30. It was hard. I won him at a fair, totally on accident, years ago. I played the game because I thought I wouldn't win, but of COURSE, i did. We were told he was a girl. Ha. the doctor then told us otherwise after we already named it, so we just kept Lizzie! Talk about a gender-confused rabbit.
Farewell, my friend. You will be missed.
