I'm sorry for your loss.
But things like these takes time to heal...Crying is good (in this case).
You should just try and focus your mind on other things,
These things happen....Remember the good memories you had with it,
I'm sorry..

You should talk to someone and express your thoughts. If not, keep crying it will be over

Try to keep a normal routine as best as possible. That does not mean you don't miss your cat any less. It is the best way to continue.

I'm sorry about your loss. I could lie to you and say it will be better in a day or two but the truth is that it just gets easier to handle. You will always remember those little looks and sounds he made and the truth is that will make it better. I still remember my first dog and all I've had since I lost her. Their memories make it all worth while. Embrace it and grieve. Then enjoy

thank you. i was his favorite, so i guess im taking it the hardest. something sharp obviously, went straight through his leg, to high to splint, so we had to put him down. when i went to see him, he was purring and he limped onto my lap. it was terrible.

Talk to someone, write, or just cry it out. When i lost my dog and 2 of my friends i was devistated. But those things helped me get over it. Time heals all wounds remember that:) sorry for your loss

No, it's impossible to get over something like that right away. Give it time. You won't completely get over it, but remember the good memories of him and the funny and sweet things he did. I lost my puppy a few years back, and my grandmother gave me a poem that helped me so much. Go to Google and look up a poem called Rainbow Bridge. I'm sorry for your loss...

I have lost so many animals in my life. It never is easy. I have done a great deal of crying. And still tear up remembering some of them. But, I focus on the funny and cute things they did. Even some if the naughty things I now find funny. Cry when you have to. You will always have her in your heart. Good luck.

Dear Love2Run, I am so sorry that you lost such an important part of your life. My mom lost her daschund, Scooter, not long ago and not only did she feel she had lost a child, I felt I lost a baby brother. I was terrified that she would grieve herself to death over Scootie but at the time she was battling Pancreatic Cancer. Instead, she has been declared cancer free and she had Scooter cremated and takes his little box of ashes everywhere. Somehow, she is able to cope this way. I asked her if I could get her an urn and she said that when she found the right one she would let me know but for now as long as he was with her she was fine. I know it sounds silly to a lot of people but our beloved pets give us more love and understanding than a human being because of their need to make us feel special and never judged. Mom said she didn't want any other pets but my nieces dog and kitties have been temporarily at moms house and I believe it actually helps. It may do you good to have another kitty but most of all just keep in mind that your kitty knew how much you loved them and you have a lot of memories that will keep a smile on your face. I also believe that we will one day see our beloved friends in heaven. Again, it may sound crazy to some but I truly believe this. It hurts right now but it will become easier to be happy with time and you will be able to talk about your kitty with fond memories and a smile instead of tears. I'm sorry I wrote so much but I know how bad it hurts and you will be able to feel better. You are in my prayers.

i only had my cat for a short time, he would be 2 in october, but i raised him, his mom didnt teach him SQUAT, and i fed him everday and when him and his brothers would try to kill each other, i would take him up into my room for a while. it was so cute, whenever i would go outside, he wouldnt leave me alone. it was rediculus when i would hunt at my dad's property becuase he would chase the birds after i shot them. when he was dying, he crawled out onto my lap, he wouldnt let anyone else touch him, and his leg was fractured! thats y we had to put him down. but he crawled out onto my lap.

Dear Loves2Run, it has been a little while and I know you have had a hard time losing your sweet friend and protector. I just wanted to check on you and make sure you are okay. I have a 1/2 Pekinese and 1/2 Pomeranian that thinks she is a cat. And like your little one she would fight a giant to protect me. I am disabled and she will wake me up if I stop breathing. And for some reason she will attack even my husband if she thinks he will disturb my sleep. And she loves him equally. To me she qualifies as a rescue dog. I guess what i saying is that I have worried that your terrible loss may keep you from getting another animal. There are so many animals out there that need love I hope you will be able to accept and love another. Take care and never give up. Your sweet kitty was very happy during its time with you and I know there is another needing your care desperately. Take care.

I had a cat who was 22 when he died in March 2012. He was super sweet and old and could still be alive if that dang dog didnt kill him.

I know it's very hard to move on when someone (animal or person) who is very special has past away. But remember, that's life, you can't live forever. He's in much better place now. He is now on the RAINBOW BRIDGE (that's what other people call it) just remember that he is with you always and he will always love you even until now.

It's hard losing your best friend. I would go to a local shelter and volunteer and play with other cats and maybe even adopt another one to help fill the gap. Just make sure it doesn't REPLACE him, just help with the pain.

Sorry for your loss. Make some time for yourself ,friends or family, and get your mind off of it . Just talk to family/friends and tell them not to talk about it, I'm sure they will support. I did the same when my cat died trust me it will help.

I am so sorry for your loss. I will tell you my experience as a Doggie Mom. I was never able to have babies, so my little dog Prissy was very special to me. I lost her last August at 12 years old. We had to put her down to be kind and just since she was suffering and almost gone on her own. My entire family was present and I was inconsolable. I missed days at work over her death and was devastated. Within weeks, as if it was meant to be, a new little one came into my life. I wasn't searching, yet her previous owner and I met on FB as I was grieving for Prissy. I can't tell you how much Mollie has helped me over the death of Prissy. I say get a new baby. They say "The sooner replaced, the more they were loved". I couldn't bear the void Prissy left and although Mollie is nothing like Prissy, I love her in a whole different way. I almost feel like it was meant to be. Hope this helps.
