You grieve, and you feel awful, but try to realize that your baby is no longer suffering and is in a better place now.  *hugs*

My sympathies to both of you on your losses.  I hope that the ensuing days and weeks will ease your sorrow and allow each of you to remember the good times.

When I lost Tinker, my little black cat of 10 years, to cancer, I thought I was crazy for feeling the way I did.  I even felt fear of being alone for some odd reason.  The "fear" lasted about 2 weeks.  I didn't realize how much I depended on that cat for stabilizing my emotions.  I know that a part of me will never fully get over that loss.  Some say, "It was just a cat."  But Tink was more than a cat to me.  Believe it or not, I have had dozens of cats in my lifetime and Tink must have been the one who had a part of my soul.

To tinkertime, I too have felt that way in the last few days.  Fear in the evening, especially at night if I get up for something and walk through the empty house.  It's really odd because I think of myself as a person that enjoys solitude....but I guess I wasn't truly alone.  Abbey passed somewhat violently, definitely fearfully anyway in my home (she had lung cancer).  We were both terrified, unfortunately.  It was pretty quick, but very scary.  I have wondered if I am picking up on some of the residual energy of her fear.  That may sound "new-agey" but I do wonder.  I have never felt afraid in this home until now.  But one thing I do know is that no-one here would ever say it was "just a cat".  We share your pain.  It does make me feel a tiny bit better to know that there are people who understand.  Thank you all again for your kind words.

To Abbey, thank you for your kind words.  Truly the worst was at night because Tink slept on my shoulder with his front leg stretched out across my neck and his fuzzy face pressed up against my cheek.  This was EVERY night.  And I couldn't seem to get the thoughts of Tink's last few hours out of my mind. The fear has gone and I can now think of Tink with fond thoughts and smiles.  It helps to tell stories and even write them down.  My two daughters are also cat lovers and they love to hear and read the stories. 
Thank you all for comments.  This site has been a wonderful relief for me and has made me realize that others feel as I do.
