Dealing with the loss of your cat is a difficult and painful process. Even though it is painful it is one that most of us who have cats will have to go through at some point or another. The reason that it is so difficult to loose a cat is because over time we begin to look at our pets as one of the family, just as you would mourn the loss of a family member passing, you also mourn the loss of your cat. In this article we will take a look at some things to make the process a little easier.
If the cat was a family cat and there are children involved dealing with the loss of your cat will be more difficult, since now you will have the young emotions to deal with also. If it is a family pet the best thing that you can do is face it as a family. Often a normal adult reaction is to face things by our selves and internalize the pain but as we all know children are not like that, it is natural for them to cry for the loss of a cat. Some times if we took a lesson from the kids we would be better off and healthier.
Perhaps you are single and your cat was your only pet. Just because you are single doesnt make dealing with the loss of your cat any different. It will be important for you to surround your self with friends who will understand how much you loved your cat.
Another good tool that you can use when dealing with the loss of your cat is to have a small memorial service for it. It is extremely helpful for kids to do this also. How you do it is up to you. You can have a burial and flowers if you like. Some people will laugh at that but remember when I said that a cat can be like a member of your family? Well if its good for a human why not a cat.
Some times when some one or something dies it will make us feel better to do something good in remembrance of them. When dealing with the loss of your cat sometimes it can help to eventually give another cat a home. Eventually giving another cat a home will help keep your pets memory alive in a good way.
