The loss of a pet is so much more than these words. Our furry friends are considered a part of the family. We love them, appreciate their presence, and mourn and miss them when they leave. Others might find this strange. But you don’t have to suffer alone.

The loss of a non-human animal is no less painful for those who live in cross-species families.  Pets are more than pets, they are companion, friend, and family, we feel an intense connection to them, sometimes, more than we might to other humans.  We become accustomed to their presence in our lives, our routines are shaped around their, and we feel comforted by them.  We take care of them, and feel supported by them, because they take care of us.  But, when the worst happens, we are devastated by the loss.  It is perhaps even more impactful because we spend so much time with them, and feel the void they leave so heavily.  This is bereavement, and it is no less painful when we lose a non-human loved one.  Not everyone can understand the intensity of this kind of loss, they may think it strange that you feel deep loneliness, but this does not mean your feelings are not valid.  The grief you feel when losing a beloved pet should be expected, and honoured. Your pain reflects your love for them, and should not be hidden in shame.  Nor should you struggle alone.  Help is available.
