Thank you Tanya
Let me give you a description of how i felt when my dad died, because to me when you lose an animal it's like losing a member of the family. A week after he died, my husband and i went back to the flat(apartment) that we had back then to collect some things as we had been staying with my mum. My downstairs neighbour and friend didn't tell me until about a month later that she had locked herself out, saw us driving up the street and hid around the back of the flats because she didn't know what to say. You've no idea how much that hurt me hearing that, because if ever i needed to talk to someone it was then, because my dad was the first close relative to die and it really cut me up
I was upset many times through the loss of the cats my parents had, but Rosie and Sophie have been MY only cats, and i know that their going to be in the bridge one day, and God knows i'll need everyones support
So what i'm trying to say is to put yourself in the shoes of those in the bridge and imagine how lonely you would feel if hardly anyone posted
Even if it's just something like " I'm so sorry for your loss "
Until i became a moderator, like most of you i could hardly go in because it upset me so much, but it's one of those things where you make yourself because people need your support
