Greiving kitties

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
It has been 9 days since I had to send poor Leo to the Bridge. The others have acted a little strange, but not too bad until this morning. I found Leo in the shower when I had to make the hard decision. The others have been looking in there some, but this morning when I pulled the shower curtain open, Fred and Georgia ran in screaming hysterically. They are still in there, looking down the drain and howling. Does anyone know anything I can do for them? I am afraid this is more than poor old Fred can take, and I am afraid of losing him, too.

That must have been horrible. The grieving is normal and should get better with a little more time. In the meantime, try giving them a little Bach's Rescue Remedy. It will help calm them without making them dopey. (You can use some too!) You can get the rescue remedy at most any healthfood store.


Big cyber hugs for the three of you.

What I would do too is go to the store and get a couple of the biggest bottles of Lemon Juice you can. Dilute it a little bit with warm water and scrub out your shower, pour the bucket of water/lemon juice down the drain and then pour another bottle of just straight lemon juice down the drain in the shower as well. This will help to cut down the smell that is left there of which the cats are reacting to, plus the lemon smell will keep them away until they have had time to grieve. All cats grieve, each one in a different way. I am sorry for your loss. I know it is hard to handle.

What an excellent idea!!! I didn't even think about the fact that they were reacting to Leo's scent.
