The time has come. Euthanasia with clove oil question

My ct Oji has been sick for a while with tumours and i've had good advice from this site about him while his heath has deteriorated.

Unfortunately the time has come when i think his best option is to let him go peacefully, i knew this would come so am prepared for it. I had hoped he would slip away on his own and honestly last night i thought he would, he was resting on the bottom, listing over to one side and i thought 'maybe tonight is the night'. But alas (as awful as this is to say) he was still kicking this morning.

So i read on here a few months back some good instructions about how to euthanize with clove oil and can't seem to find the post. Am i correct in thinking that putting him in a small container and adding a few drops and then letting some time pass and then adding a few more is the best way? Will he just slip away slowly? How long can i expect it to take?

I feel bad about doing this but i don't want him to suffer and i've been watching him closely and i feel he's now hovering on the line between surviving and suffering.

I can't answer your question, but I hope that he passes peacefully.

Thanks. I found it online somewhere and it took roughly 45 mins but it was peaceful.

Glad he's not suffering anymore.
