What’s your MO after the loss of a special pet?
We lost our old man kitty last weekend. It was a day (or a month) too soon but the timing worked out for it be the best experience it could be. I was fine with everything the day of. Went to bed thinking I’d wake up in the morning feeling a sense of relief not to be worrying about him anymore. Instead, I automatically reached for his spot on my pillow and lost it.
Saving you all the drama, it was unbearable in the beginning. More so than I remember with any loss in the past but I knew their real age and that there was nothing else I could do. I now have a ridiculous faux fur, blanket that sits on my lap for TV watching just like he did. :lol: Either that or time has made the last couple days so much easier.
I’d like to foster a senior cat in his honor but I’m not sure when. Some people are telling me now and others say to give it more time. Not sure what I feel because I have kids and other animals to focus on, but it’s something I definitely want to happen when the time is right. Do you jump right back in or wait? Have you regretted having another animal in the house because it's too soon?
