    Common Questions About Pet Loss

    in Pets

    Below are some of the most frequent questions we get at www.deathofmypet.com    We will go over the answers to these questions about pet loss and how it affects those of us who are are suffering.




    How is it possible that I am sadder with the loss of my dog than with the loss of close family members?

    For many people the love and companionship of a pet may be the only or certainly the strongest bond of unconditional love they have experienced.  It is also possible, like many of my clients, which you have been strong and practical while caring for ailing parents or friends.  But suddenly, your best friend and closest companion is dying and it is the last straw on a pile of buried emotions. It may be that your pet was your “safe place to go and soft spot to land.”


    2. I feel like I am going crazy. Am I ever going to feel normal again?

    Yes, you will feel emotionally better but different than before.  You will eventually remember and rejoice in the many happy times you had with your pet.  You will be able to reflect on the many life lessons you shared.

    3. How long will I grieve my pet?

    All of our emotions are individual.  When we love deeply, we grieve deeply.  Grief coaches often say that it takes about a year before your loss is the first thing you think of in the morning and the last thing you think about at night.

    Pet Radio-Domesticating a Feral Cat

    in Pets

    When Anne Kaier stopped her car on a busy road to tend to an injured cat, she had no idea how that decision would change her life. Home with Henry: A Memoir (PS Books, $15), tells the story of the slow process of domesticating Henry, the strange urban dwelling that became his home, and the bond that ultimately developed between Henry and his new human companion. 

    Home with Henry relates the journey Kaier and Henry take together—Kaier giving him the space and time to settle in, little by little enticing him from his hiding spot under the guest bed, introducing him to her beloved resident calico, Lucille, and finally allowing him free reign of her backyard garden. Witty and insightful, the book offers readers practical tips and suggestions about how to introduce new cats, rescue or not, to a home. It also highlights the true joy of pet ownership and the rich companionship pets can offer.
