I got back from the university this afternoon to discover that my two month old kitten was in the process of dying. Called the veterinarian and described the symptoms: vet said you are right your kitty is dying. You have two choices. You can wait it out with your kitten for the next two to eight hours or you can bring your kitten in and we can put it down for you. This put me in a dilemma. What should I do? I had three options. (1) Take the cat to the vet: cost three hours + fee. (2) Stay with the cat and try to make him as comfortable as possible until he died: cost 2-8 hours. (3) Or ignore the cat altogether, do my work and let him die alone and dispose of him later: cost 0 hours, cold heart.
Ranking of choices in order of efficiency assuming my time is worth something:
3, 1, 2. I choose 2. Clearly, I am not suited to a leadership role.
