|Gern||BS: sudden death of pet (48)||RE: BS: sudden death of pet||19 Nov 03|
My 17-year old is suddenly dying of kidney failure, and although we might prop him up for a few months with artificial hydration, he's getting ready to check out. I sure understand your feelings. I'm a happily married man, but I've allowed almost no living thing to get as close to me as this cat. A close pet can require profound grieving, which is sometimes hard for others to understand. But pet lovers understand it. When you're ready, start over again.
