amboehlen Posted October 16, 2020 Report Share Posted October 16, 2020 Hi, I'm looking for ways to grieve in an effective healthy manner. I feel very lost and disoriented right now We had to put my 21 year old cat down unexpectedly last night. I've had this cat since I was three, I don't remember a life before him or without him. He was having some issues a couple weeks ago but they seemed cleared up and he was back to normal. Very talkative, very spunky, eating well. Then last night, literally in a matter of seconds he had an event (stroke, seizure, we're unsure). Rushed him to the ER and had to make the choice to let him rest. That was less than 24 hours ago. I don't know how to grieve him. I don't know where to start. Right now I'm just crying. My husband and I boxed up his food too give to my parents. We washed his food and water bowls. He had a makeshift bed made of blankets, we washed those and put them away. Now I'm just crying. I miss him. I don't want to believe that he's gone, that I'll never hear him or see him or hold him again. I desperately want him in my arms. I don't know how to start grieving, I feel empty. I feel like I'm drowning. I know things will get better in time but this first day feels impossible. I don't know what to do. I attached a picture of my baby. His name was Westley, and he was so incredibly handsome. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
