End-of-life choice—cat thinkies


Marcel Proust (not the writer, the maneki-neko) is alarmed by the unregulated practice of pet-euthanasia by humans, and looks forward to end-of-life choice in this country. (Ursula is deeply uncomfortable: outta here!)

On Ursula’s behalf I will attend a new play, Welcome To The Death Cafe, by Jan Bolwell. (Bats Theatre, Wellington, 19–23 November 2019.) I expect it to be riveting, controversial, and even-handed.

      I am expecting it to be tough and funny.

    I totally agree we should all have a choice of how we exit with dignity from this mortal world. The play does sound interesting.

    I have sometimes felt sorry for dogs whose owners haven’t spared them the painful and debilitating consequences of certain injuries and diseases. The animal can’t understand why it is suffering such punishment.
    I feel such owners keep their animals alive for their own sake, not the animals’, because they don’t want to lose them.
    It’s kinder to let them go.
    Enjoy the play.

      I suspect this happens with humans also. But how hard it is!
