If you are a reader of Radius, you are familiar with our well-researched health articles that are supplied by our physician writers, but along with the health information…I hope you are enjoying our lifestyle features as well. One of my favorites is our pet section. I am an avid animal lover…with two dogs…a water garden filled with Koi, a yard full of happy squirrels, and assorted birds. We also had a wonderful, loving cat named Georgia, but she met with an unfortunate accident and we had to tell this gentle soul good-bye.
Saying farewell to a family pet can be very devastating to young children, but also to adults…especially senior adults who have enjoyed the company of their pet for several years. I recently spoke to a dear aunt who lost her devoted feline after a long lifetime together, and she was just heart-broken.
One suggestion that I would like to make is to allow yourself time to grieve and have closure. Though I don’t claim to be an expert in this area, I can say from experience that it is good to shed tears and mourn their absence…similar to that of a lost loved person. Don’t try to be brave or play down the fact that they are just animals and you should not exhibit such mournful behavior. They were a member of your family…a trustworthy friend…and they earned a place in your heart. It is good to close this gap in your life in a natural way.
