My beloved cat, only 5 years old, took ill and died last week. She was with me through divorce, job loss, wildfire destroying our home, loss of parents...she was my constant, my rock, my best friend through dark days.

The loss is devastating, and i am struggling. How do i walk through this grief and loneliness? I miss her so much.

Hi
I’m so sorry for the loss of your lovely cat. I know how hard it is. The early stages of grief you are going through are so difficult. My advice is just to get through each day the best you can at this stage, look after yourself and keep reminding yourself what a wonderful life you gave your beautiful cat. Time does help you heal, I know we all go through it at a different pace. I’m 4.5 months in and I’m in a much better place that I was when I first lost my girl but it’s a tough journey to be on.
I hope you’re your ok and look after yourself. You’re not alone, people on this site understand what you’re going through and I hope you can find some comfort from this forum as I have.

Hi Chatnoir
Thank you for your kind words.
I think the anger is completely natural, especially as you lost your beautiful cat far too early. I had some anger but the biggest thing for me was the guilt, it was horrendous and I didn’t think it would ever go, the guilt is still there but it’s more bearable. I think the answer sadly is time, it’s trying to process the huge loss and I think talking it through helps to try to make sense of it. I felt like I would go out of my mind those first few weeks, some people have talked about counselling helping. I personally found seeing other people’s experiences on this forum help me to feel less alone and deal with the awful emotions. I found some good advice on the forum.
I’m so sorry you’re going through this.
