Napping on a Sunbeam conjures up a lovely picture of warmth and tranquillity. Just the place for a dearly beloved feline friend to spend their days once they’ve left their earthly home and family.
Coping with the death of our feline friends can be a traumatic experience, an experience that some never get over and they resolve never to get another cat. Others have to rush out the very next day to bring home a new cat – not to replace the one who has just passed away, but to them, their home feels empty without a feline presence.
For some, the grieving experience may be short, and for others, it may take a longer time. Rest assured that grief, like grieving for a human companion, will work itself out and the stages that we each go through on that journey will vary from person to person, depending on personality and character. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. You may cry inconsolably for many months, you may cry for a few minutes – it doesn’t mean you didn’t love your pet if you don’t cry at all – we all grieve in our own way.
These pages are to remember the feline companions who graced our lives and enriched them with their presence, and for whom our lives are the emptier by their absence – yet Heaven is the richer for their presence.
