I need help euthanizing my cat

Please, I understand this is horse forum not for cats but I didn't know where else to turn. We have some cats that have been around our house since kittens, and well one of them was found laying on the ground. He's an adult now..but his head is super swollen..and he is bleeding from his eyes and he can't see. He is in pain..meowing..and I don't know what to do for him. We would take him and surrender him to them so they can put him down but they are closed..I hate to see him suffer. We don't have money to pay...please somone what can we do for him..it's so sad :''((

It sounds to me like either a snake bite or maybe he was stomped/kicked by a horse or cow.

Unfortunately, if the vet is not available to put him to sleep and he is beyond saving then the kindest thing you could do is put him down yourself with a quick and clean shot to the head. I know that sounds harsh but if there are no emergency vets in your area that is open then it may be the poor guy's only option. :(

Then I guess just make him as comfortable as possible and let him pass on naturally. Animals die everyday, some in worse condition then your cat and its just natures way. Its so sad though I'm very sorry

Call your local vet. Given the circumstances and if you're willing to take the cat to them, they may offer a humane solution at minimal or no cost. Local animal control officers may also be able to assist.

Cheers,
Mark

Mark, I appreciate the advice. But all the local vet offices are closed because it's Sunday.

Vets close always on Sundays? Wow I must be very ignorant x.x If you don't have a gun just let him die in his favourite place =( You could also get through with an emergency vet. I'm sure those are open on Sundays.

Generally when you call the office they will have a number listed in case of emergencies on the answering machine. I'd bs calling every office in town until you find one with an emergency number. Then, in the future, discuss with your vet what your options are for after hours emergency care, just in case.

Is the cat still alive?

In a situation like that, gory as it is, you could always run it over swiftly with a car (right over the head/midsection), or drown, though I'd personally prefer the former....I've heard of people putting animals in the freezer to euth them, too, though again I'm not sure that's something I'd recommend.
