Re: Is it okay to post about loss of a pet on here?
That's very sad.
I always feel rotten when I see a really old animal on its last legs. Our cat was about that age when it died last year. It had gone to sleep on a cushion in the shed, and it was all stiff when we found it. But at least it was curled up asleep when it died.
I guess it will help if you bury the Cat somewhere close to your house, in your garden, and do a few things to memorialise its significance to you, such as buying some nice flowering plants to grow over the top of where it is buried. We have ours under a spot near some bushy flowering plants. It's nice to think that one life is passing into other living things.
You have my sympathy. A pet can be just like a family member.
Our cat didn't have a name because it was a rescue cat and it was a few months old already.
What was yours called?
