    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I understand what you are feeling. My cat died a few years and I still miss my fiesty tabby. Only pet owners understand the love we have for our babies. My best wishes for you. God bless.

    Dear bandaidexpert,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Pets are truly very special beings. Where else can you find unconditional love. In keeping with the nursing theme, you could possibly need some grief couseling. I have viewed some wonderful internet pages on pet loss grieving. Have a box of tissues in hand and try these sites out. They will help you feel better. Try a search on pet loss or pet grief or rainbow bridge.com. There is one site that has a candle light ceremony once a week and you can post your pets name there. I hope this helps and feel free to contact me if you just need to purge. Believe me I have been though this too.

    Our pets are SOOO special to us!! Four years ago we lost "Rosie," one of three cats. Rosie used to snuggle under the covers with me for oh,say, the first five min. after I got into bed, then get out. The first night after she died, as I crawled into bed, a four-month-old kitten we had at the time jumped up on the bed with me. She had never done THAT before! Then she proceeded to snuggle under the covers, just as Rosie had done. Of course, I petted her the whole time she was with me, as I'd done with Rosie. She crawled out after about five minutes and then went on her way. That was the one and only time she had or has ever gotten under the covers like that. I can't help thinking she was trying to comfort me, in her own way. There's so much we don't know/can't understand about our wondrous pets. I'm anxious for heaven, where we can ask about all these things (and see our pets again . . .now, that's another thread, for speculation only!)

    I am so sorry that you lost your friend. Our pets love us no matter what, and always remain faithful to us, no matter what the world does to us. We lost one of our dogs a few months ago, and hubby still keeps her dish in its spot with food in it for her.
