Need to euthanize my cat...

My cat is old - 13 years. She has had hip problems for years and for the last week or so has been drooling with a dark discharge around her nose and mouth. She is solid white but has dark all over her fur (stomach mostly) from licking herself. Today while I was at work, my roommate said she was drooling heavily and bleeding from her mouth. I need to have her put to sleep but absolutely cannot afford it right now. I barely have bus money to get to work. My roommate takes Oxycontin and several other meds including Vistaril. Can we give her something that will just allow her to pass away peacefully in her sleep and at what dosage? Thank you.

Please bring her to the RSPCA or SPCA, or other animal shelter to have her humanely euthanized.
