On Grief at the loss of a pet

So interesting article on how loss a pet cat, dog, horse et al is akin to the same thing we go through with loss loved ones. I’m familiar with those feeling having lost three cats in the space of a few months. The anger oh yeah. Mostly being lied to by the vet.

Of course it’s the same – the rituals, the loss of the unconditional love of a pet. Of course it hurts and is going to cause grief. But we don’t treat it the same. I wish we did.
