Anyone coping with the loss of a beloved pet cat will know just how upsetting and devastating a grief it can be. But often others, who may not have ever owned a kitty, just don't understand.
Here's a story of a man grieving the loss of his pet cat which just shows that anyone can fall in love with a feline fur baby and suffer a huge loss when they pass.
Anyone who has lost a beloved pet will know what a devastating loss it is. The house seems empty without the welcome home each night. The purring as they jump on your lap or the gentle feel of fur curling round your legs. The unconditional love they give you and the gifts of dead mice on the door step!
Cats are very independent - they have their own territories, they can climb fences or trees so come and go as they please, but they choose you to come home to and that creates a special bond which makes the loss even harder.
Young kittens can provide hours of pleasure as they explore the new world playing with boxes or wool, hiding in tiny spaces in cupboards and jumping out when you least expect it. Cat lovers know that each one has their own personality like in the show CATS, some real characters.
Stroking our pets is therapeutic. It is calming and lowers the blood pressure and you always have a friend nearby when they are home. If you live alone then the loss of a cat can create an enormous gap in your life.
Grief for your pet cat is real. Tears are never far away when mourning a beloved cat and coping with everyday life can be a struggle at first. Sadly friends who have never owned pets cannot begin to know how you feel, this is their loss. You are not alone with your sadness. Animal lovers everywhere recognize your loss and send you support.
