I feel like a giant a-hole :(

We've had him checked out several times and each time they tell me there's nothing wrong with him, it's a behaviour. Problem is, it doesn't happen all the time. If it truly was a behaviour, wouldn't he be peeing every day? Things have been happening lately and it all just doesn't add up. He's whining constantly, wants to be held/cuddled all the time (this is a cat that barely liked to be touched when we first got him), and when you pick him up, he smells of urine. He pee'd on the chair yesterday and continued to lay in it afterwards. Healthy cats just don't do that. I honestly think he's really sick they are just missing something .
So I thinks it's really in the best interest of everybody if we put him to rest. I feel like an **** for deciding that its his time instead of letting nature decide. After I put my dog down 9 years ago I decided that any more animals would be allowed to pass naturally at home, but I just can't do that. I'm supposed to call and make the appt today but I'm having a real hard bringing myself to do so. I love you Jake

Clomicalm is wonderful. It is not super cheap but, it also is not super expensive.
You have no reason to feel bad. The move could even trigger him to be worse. Inappropriate urination is the #1 reason cats are given up or euthanized. You are not alone.

The only other thing you can do is try for a second opinion at a different vet. If is is behaviour then try daily medication. If it is behaviour it wouldn't always happen. Just look at some of the posts on here from moms with children with behaviour issues ...some days are good, and some are bad, pets are the same.
Dont feel bad, you have to make the right decision for yourself and your family.
