My kitten died today. She was a cat that we rescued last month, and unfortunately she had a heart attack today... She was only 5 months old. I feel terrible. How do you cope with a loss of a pet? I love animals so deeply. Even though I only knew her for a month she was the sweetest thing.
your soul hardens even more and you vow revenge on the evil demiurge and cannot wait for death to battle in the underworld until you become a god and create a world where your kitty never died again.
>>3695991My husband and I were walking outside on a snowy morning last month when we found a cat laying in the middle of the road unable to move meowing desperately for help. She was skin and bones and had her legs and face injured. We took her to the vet and they gave her solulite and some eye medicine. She was missing many teeth and sometimes needed to be spoonfed wet food. Her face and legs eventually healed up and she was starting to gain weight so I thought she was getting better... And then she suddenly had a seizure and collapsed with yellow liquid coming out of her mouth... It broke my heart so much...
>>3695991Animals die or are killed terribly all the time. All you can do is say you did your best for them during the time they had. Even a short life is a gift to a stray that'd otherwise be euthanized.
>>3695998Of course silly thoughts like that run in my mind. I wish there was a cat heaven. I wish she could come back as a ghost and play with me again. I wish I could ask a god why things have to die...>>3696014Thanks for putting things into perspective. If I didn't get her that day she would've froze to death or have been ran over by a car. I still wish my best was better.
>>3695991It returned to the void. Next time, don't get attached to something that's likely to die like a stray kitten. It's like getting emotionally invested in money you have in the stock market. Or like tying a rope to one arm and the other to a rock that might roll off a cliff, or might not.
>>3696037I can't. I love all animals immediately.
>>3695991>hear some meows coming from the hay loft in our barn>there's three little kittens that are just old enough to walk>their eyes are closed and they run towards anything they hear>play with them for a little bit and then leave>check on them a few days later>they all starved to death, the mom never came backFuck this gay earth. Maybe I got my scent on them or something, but I've played with kittens before without the mom abandoning them.
>>3697341the mom was dead
>>3697341I don't think scent matters as much. Mother cats have been known to foster orphan kittens, there's even a video on YouTube of a mother cat taking care of ducklings. It is more than likely something happened to the mom. I am really really sorry it happened...
>>3695991Unfortunately there is no cope, all you can do is hurt until it stops hurting which for me was about a year. You could also get wasted 24/7 but I wouldn't recommend that.
>>3696028>>>3695998>I wish there was a cat heavenBut Anon, there is a cat heaven.
>>3695991its Ok to cry after "animal"its OK to grief after animalIts Ok to make a memorial for your animal (not everyine just dump caracass into trash bin)in more "casual cases", just remember about your pet>>3696037im quite sure you lie about "Im not a robot" checkmark
>>3698159that part is usually called Rainbow Bridge (btw Rainbow Bridge/Bifrost originated in Norse mythology as a sort of "connector between worlds, but in present it function as sort of "pet heaven")https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow_Bridge_(pets)
pets mostly have short lives, so let them live in your heart/memoryStay strong <3
