|We are so sorry to hear that Little Oscar's health is failing. If Oscar should pass away while he is at home, there are places you can take your pet's body to, depending on how you would like to handle the remains.
Our Mom's previous kitty, Carlos, passed away from lymphoma last fall and died at home. It was very sad to say the least since he died very quickly and it was not expected that he would pass at home. He had been to the vet's the previous night for hydration and antibiotics so it wasn't expected that he would take such a turn for the worse that very night. She and Daddy found a place on-line nearby that cremates pets and they put his ashes in a beautiful urn with his picture on it. Mommy keeps it on her dresser.
If Oscar should get to the point where he cannot eat, walk, or seems like he is in pain or uncomfortable, we would take him to a vet to see if it is time to euthanize him.
We know how very painful it is to see a beloved pet in failing health and we hope that Oscar stays as comfortable as possible in the days he has left. Big hugs to you
