Q. I recently had my cat put down during the procedure the vet pulled the needle out and stuck it in the heart is this unusual

A. Some vets do this, they all have a slightly different technique. This wouldn't have caused any distress to your cat as it would have already been unconscious if it had even had a small amount of the injection via the leg.
