Death of a Pet
(In memory of Rufus, Simba and all our much-loved animal friends in spirit.)
|Whilst there is endless support from every angle for those who have lost a human loved one, there is seemingly little support for those who have lost a pet. People who have never lost an animal look on in scorn and say: 'but it was just a cat' or 'just a dog'. However, losing an animal can be every bit as devastating as losing a human loved|
|one - for in many, many cases the animal is as much a part of the family. In some cases the animal has become like the owner's child.|
|It was because of this seeming lack of support that I decided to compile this links page - separate to the ordinary links page. This page is intended as a little 'room' just for the animals in our lives - those still here on Earth with us and those in spirit too. Many do not realise that animals pass over in the same way as humans - they wait for us and they are reunited with us when it is our turn to 'go home' to spirit.|
|I hope that the following links provide some comfort:|

Animal Samaritans - Excellent website, with bereavement page
Pet Loss - A series of links that may be of use.

Gone to the Dog Star - A lovely memorial page for our canine friends in spirit.
