On May 19,2017 my wife brought home a tiny 4 week old tortoise shell female kitten from a shelter. At first I wasn't crazy about the idea but for some reason the kitten was immediately drawn to me. Being retired I'm home more than any body else so I spent the majority of time with our new family member who we named Tabitha. Over time I fell in love with this animal as she would always be on my lap or cuddled next to me. She always knew when I was down about something and comforted me. She was primarily an indoor cat but I let her in the back yard for about an hour a day because she loved to lay on the warm concrete patio. Yesterday morning October 24, 2019 I was awakened early in the morning by my sobbing wife that she found Tabitha dead in the street in front of our house. I have been grief stricken and feel so lost and lonely without her. I am home alone during the day while my wife is at work and my son is at school. A part of me has died and I feel as if I've lost a child. I keep expecting her to come jump on my lap or jump on the bed at bedtime. She sits on the bathroom counter at night while I brush my teeth before bed. I really miss her and now understand why people hurt so much when they lose a pet.

So sorry for your huge loss. I know how painful this is. You didn’t get to say goodbye and she was ripped away from you so very suddenly. That sort of allows hurts the most. I’m so sorry you’re going through this pain. My little cocker spaniel was my only child, she was so dear to me. I spent most of my day with her. I know how painful it is as I’m going through the same loss. Think of the good time you had with your kitty. She sounds truly precious and lovely. Grief is a process and it will take time. I hope you take care yourself and take all the time you need to process through this loss and grief. You’re at a right place. Continue to share your feelings to this supportive community helps me so much through my own grief and loss. Hugs to you, I’m so sorry.

Hello Rmays2k7,

How are you feeling today? I would imagine you are still very upset and understandably so.

Please update us on how you are doing.

So sorry you have had to endure this.
