With Amber ~ The Best Library Kitty in the entire Mewton~Clawson Parish
Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library
The loss of a pet can hit us as hard as the loss of any close friend. Yet pet bereavement is so little talked about that along with grief and pain, animal lovers may find themselves having to deal with feelings of confusion and even embarrassment at the strength of their reaction. For anyone grieving the loss of a pet, or facing up to having a pet put down, this short book aims to fill the gap.
Posie was the furst to leave in April 2015, and then we had a double whammy with Snowie and Humphrey departing within 24 hours of each other in April 2017 which was truly dreadful, and then Basil in September 2018. His departure hit us worse than we could ever have imagined in 9 life-times and still today we're grieving, in all honesty I don't think we'll ever get over his loss, but we are managing with some days better than others.
So still being deep within the grief process, I thought this book arrived at the purrfect moment; call it chance, coincidence or just a bit of cosmic synchronicity.
Although not a big book, it has much guidance on how to cope with loss and help to reconcile feelings, thereby assisting a shift to enable a better understanding of what you're going through; as only you know how you feel, only you can know the true depth of the feelings you had for your pet at the time of their departure. Grief is such a personal thing and there's no right or wrong way to work through it.
