Pet Bereavement Support Group

The loss of a pet or animal to which one has become emotionally bonded can be an intense loss, comparable with the death of a loved one. Whilst there is strong evidence that animals can feel such loss for other animals, this community focuses on human feelings, when an animal is lost, dies or otherwise is departed.

  • Dogs Carmen is in front, Doc in distance. They were pointing a bird I put out in launching trap for hunting training. The bird isn't hurt it is tossed up into air w remote control and it flys back to pigeon coupe. Carmen died April 1, 2009, Doc died Jan. 5, 2014 if memory serves me correctly. Current photo is my avitar, but it is in my photos too if the avitar got changed when you read this!

    My Boy is gone

    Have you ever had a cat that just wants to be near you all the time? So loving and affectionate. Sweet-natured and gentle. He just came into my life one day and never left. He wanted out a couple of nights ago. When I called him before going to bed he didn't come. Feeling uneasy, I went to bed. He didn't come the next morning for breakfast. I knew something was wrong. I called for him...
  • I lost my Bella Jean a week ago due to a tragic accident. Can't stop crying and feeling it's my fault I wasn't there to help her. I wake up everyday and she is the first thing I think of, and cry. I miss her sweet face greeting me and making me feel loved.
  • My cat Mona was hit by a car pretty much right outside our driveway on Saturday night. We discovered her body early on Sunday morning when I was taking my partner to work. We both saw her at the same time, cried "no!" and jumped out the car and ran over to her. There was this old man stopped right by her, looking at her with the saddest look on his face. My husband and I were just crying, I was...

    cute things

    I thought perhaps naming some cute things are present or past furry friends have done might be I think our doggy would be a great pickpocket...she can pick up something while out for her walk and I don't even see her do it until I notice her holding her mouth funny or I hear crunching

  • I put her down Monday morning because she was too far gone and was in pain and I didn't want to be selfish and just keep her for me. I keep crying, this is really hard.
  • Missy Cat/Missy Boy was an outside cat that I had fixed so that she wouldn't have any babies. She was a baby herself at the age of almost )12 months) 10 months old She was all grey and was so pretty. She lived in the front patio of my house and always came when I called her for dinner and was always at my front door every morning and night to get food and water. I would feed her at around...
