My beloved cat, Kiwi was euthanized on 9/21. She was 17+ years and had kidney disease. She was my last cat and the grief at times has been unbearable. I've hardly eaten since last Monday and don't sleep well. I can't concentrate very well and walk around the quiet house looking in all her usual spots crying, I just don't know what to do with myself.

I have the usual what if's, regrets and tremendous guilt over not paying close enough attention to the signs of dehydration earlier this summer that probably moved her disease along faster than needed. I've had 4 other losses, so I'm no stranger to these feelings but this time seems especially hard because I don't have another cat, that by now, would be giving me some comfort. It's so hard to not have someone using the litter box, water bowl or the beds, I don't want to ever put those things away because right now I feel like I'd be erasing her from my life.

I really regret not getting a another cat a  few years ago when Kiwi got diagnosed, but my husband is not a pet person at all and I didn't want to fight about the money spent. It's hard that my husband doesn't share in my grief and doesn't understand the bond or need that Kiwi filled.  Thankfully my 15 yr old son is doing better than me. I, however, feel such hoplessness. 
Thank you for listening

My heart goes out to you. There are sadly no magic words I can give you to heal. This will take only time,and you will never be the same person as you were before this. It makes me sad when people say this to me, but I am sure you have your baby many years of love and joy, and in time you will remember that side of your grief and it will help you to heal. My dog just got attacked and killed by a dog at a dog park and it is even hard for me to type this, but I am living thru everyone's sadness on here and know you are not alone. Love goes out to you......
