Bad news today

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
When my ex-husband and I got divorced, I left my 2 cats with him because they were outdoor cats and I was going to live in an apartment. Because I remained good friends with my ex, I was able to see my kitties whenever I wanted.

Today, my ex called and told me that my beloved Siamese cat, Possum, was dead. He found him in the back yard. He was only 6. I can’t stop crying. My heart hurts so much. I am all alone on a business trip and this is the worst news to hear and no one is here to lean on.

I loved that cat like he was my child. He played fetch, hide and seek and stole money from my purse to play with. I found him when he was abandoned by his mom and he grew up to be the most loving pet. He was found in the back wooded area behind the house where I originally found him as a kitten. He had been rained on and died alone. We don't know what happened. I am so sad.

How very, very sad for you Please try to think of Possum playing happily over RB, chasing butterflies & scampering about with our other RB kitties, and getting lots of cuddles & kisses from wonderful human angels who also crossed over at too-young of an age. Condolences on your loss

Siameseluver, I'm so sorry you lost Possum. He sounds like such a wonderful cat, and I wish he could have had many more years with you. It's heartbreaking that you lost him this way, and that you got the news while on a business trip. I hope you're home now, with friends and loved ones who'll understand how much this hurts, and give you the support you need. And it helps to have support online, too, and TCS is a wonderful site for finding support from other cat lovers, who always understand.

You had such a close bond with Possum, and that has not changed even though he's crossed over. Love never dies, and Possum is waiting for you at Rainbow Bridge, and you will see him again.

I don't know how often you have to travel, how often you're alone and far from loved ones, which can be so traumatic when you're grieving. I want to tell you about a technique I learned of years ago, not long after I lost my Sinbad. It helped me, and it helped a lot of the people I told about it. It's a technique developed by therapists to help children suffering from PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder, which grief can be a form of (especially after a sudden, traumatic loss like yours). Though it's so simple children can learn it in minutes, it can help adults. In a way it's a form of meditation. Here's a link to a web page about it:

It can often help people feel less stressed within minutes. I hope it will help you, at least a little. And I'm praying you'll have some signs from Possum letting you know he's still around and watching over you.

Hugs,

Cindy
