Losing a beloved pet can be an incredibly challenging and emotional experience for a family. Pets are also cherished members of the family, and their absence can leave a void that’s difficult to fill. During this time, it’s important to provide support, understanding, and a safe space for each family member to grieve in their own way.
It’s been almost four months now when we lost our 18-year-old adopted cat, Minos. I still cry whenever (and wherever). Minos has been with us when he was 12, a senior cat that was full of sweetness, silliness, and love. He bonded with hubby, always sitting on his lap, asking for pets, and basically sleeping beside him everyday.
I personally was preparing myself mentally and emotionally, knowing that an average cat lives up to 14 years, I was always reading up on the best things for older cats. Still, he lived up to be 18.5 and he spent his best years with us.
