Pet Loss Grief and You.
Lately I have noticed that our cat is starting to get a little bit old. He doesn’t seem to jump around play around anymore like he used to, and he seems to have a little bit of arthritis in his back and his joints. I’m really concerned about it, because I know that my wife is really attached to my cat. I’ve heard that some people suffer a lot of pet loss grief when their pets die, and I really don’t want that to happen to my wife. I wish there was some reason that I could just give the cat away, but I can’t think of anything that would really make sense. I think that if I tried to do something like that, she would catch on to what I was doing. I guess that’s the problem was having an intelligent wife. I could also think about just getting another cat now, like a little kitten so that the one kitten could sort of distract her from the loss of the other cat. That might help a little bit, but I’m really not sure if it will make very much of a difference. I just hope that she doesn’t go through too much emotional stress when all that happens. Sometimes my wife can really get attached to things like that and it can affect her.
