I think if you did something like that, you would feel sad, but also have the satisfaction that you gave those animals a dignified end and depending how old they are, possibly a happy last few years.
The only thing would be cost. We had to fork out a few thousand for our senior cat recently because of his thyroid and issues with pancreatitis. He is now on tablets that cost around $1 a day, so you would probably have to factor in the costs of maintaining elderly animals.
I've always wanted to adopt a mother cat with a group of kittens and keep them all. Of course this is in my fantasy world.
