My pet cat of 15 years is approaching her end and it makes me miserable. For those 15 years we were almost always together, she would sleep on my bed with me every night, and spend most of her time with me when I was home. She use to be so energetic and playful up to a few months ago but now her age has caught up with her. While looking at her before a thought popped into my head, "what if I could take some years off my life and give them to her?". So would you give up some of your own life so your pets could live longer? If I had the choice I would without any second thoughts.

I'd accept it. Who says the pet wants to live longer.. it could just be suffering if its getting that old.

i wouldn't. of course this doesn't mean i hate my pets or anything, I love all animals, but my life more. That may sound a bit stubborn buts its the truth. People and animals die, theres nothing we can do about it.

Its so hard when pets die, but if they're suffering...its best to just let go. My dog died in my arms, and his last breath was like a sigh of relief. =/

I wouldn't do it for a pet. Maybe a person I love. But not a pet.

I've gone through so many pets. I've learned to move on, because I know I gave them the world. I feed them, told them I loved them, gave them all the attention and love and freedom they could ever have, so I know that they lived a life of happiness. The difference is, your cat has lived all her fifteen years- that's a full lifetime. She lived a long and good life, and you can let her live on, don't worry.

To answer your question, yes because I'm stupid when it comes to these things. If you think about it, five years from your life is little in the long run, but five extra years for a cat is an insane addition.

Truthfully, I would say no because I'm selfish and the pet doesn't seem important enough for me to give up some of my life for.

You can also give the cat catnip? I never had a cat, but I think they like it

It's probably time for the cat to go. Just accept that your cat is leaving. The cat is leaving to a better place anyway, so it's ok. Just accept it.

Living things die. There are always kittens.

My life is more important than a animal's. If I had the power to transfer life energy or whatever, I would absorb animals lifespans and incorporate it into my own.

I know how you feel, it's just something that happens but I think you just need to accept it. Just get a new pet, time will heal the pain of the loss.

Clone the cat. It like basically having the same cat.

i totally agreed with you.
frank5448, dont take life as granted, you only get to live one and their's no second chance. if you give half of your life to your pet, what about the people that you're leaving behind have you though of that. a person or a pet is never dead as long as someone still remember them
