Having your pet euthanized at home is more expensive, but for our favorite deathxpert, Caitlin Doughty, it was important, when her Siamese cat was sick with cancer: "If I had to do it again, a thousand times, I would choose this, every time."

Caitlin had a vet come to her home and her cat, The Meow, was put down as she was being held. As Caitlin explains: "As she died, she was literally purring." Following the death, there was a wake and a natural burial.
