Missing P.

Today I've been hit with a wave of grief, the strongest one since the initial sadness of losing Parceiro passed. I've felt like crying all day, and can't stop thinking about the fact that our boy suffered 3 very painful days before letting go. I know there were tons of good times, and that these years of love and enjoyment far outweigh temporary suffering, but still. God it hurts! I miss Parceiro so much, and even now can't really believe he's gone.

I won't turn this into a cat-mourning blog, but man today has been tough.

Sorry to hear that!

Maybe it's the season? It's really been hitting me how much I miss my dog, too (she died in July).

There's no replacing the Best Pet Ever.

A current loss can touch "older" losses. I'm all for being "functionally sad" when it is needed. Look up Elizabeth Kubler Ross' stages of dealing with loss.

I am so sorry, friend. Losing a pet is very painful... ((hug))
