Coping with the Loss of Your Pet

Losing a pet certainly can be a sad experience.  Some of us are embarrassed to admit how dismal we feel, afraid that someone will say, “It’s only a cat,” or “You can always get another dog.”  Maybe you think you don’t have anyone who would understand your loss, so you keep quiet about it. Or maybe you live alone, and your pet was your only companion. Often some support while you’re going through this difficult time can be a big help.  And that brings us to the resources that are available online to help get you through this rough spot in your life.
