So hard to lose a feline baby

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I just lost my sweet Levi yesterday. The writing is comfoting but I still am so overcome with grief. Any other suggestions to help me?

Sue, losing a furchild is never easy, and I know that truthfully, there's nothing that I can say to make it "stop hurting". That will take time, and lots of it. What I can do though, is lend you a listening ear if you need it, to let you talk about your loss, it helps more than you know. If you want to talk, just click on my username and send me a Private Message telling me all about it. I'll be online here for about another hour, so I'm all yours!

Sue, I'm so sorry to hear that you lost Levi. There is really, like Cindy said, nothing we can say that will overcome the grief, but know that your baby had a wonderful life with you and you two shall meet again. RIP Levi!

Try remembering the fun things, the cute things - and even the things that made you crazy that Levi would do. Remember him, and he will always be with you.

I lost my Beau 2 years ago last week. I still get sad that he isn't physically with me, but deep down I know he is there as long as I continue to think about him.

Levi will always be with you.

Oh hugs :-( I lost my Smudge just three weeks ago... it won't help you now but it does feel better as time goes. I cried buckets and still tear up... thought my heart was being ripped to shreds and didn't know how I would deal! But we do! Have you read "the Rainbow Bridge" yet? It helped me to visualise Smudge's new world and the happiness, and to "picture" him sensing me coming and the excitement - nobody but a true animal person would ever understand!!
Feel free to PM me if you wish, and the people in these forums you will find soooooo beautiful .... it will all get better ....

I am sorry you lost dear Levi. It does get better but it takes time. You will remember with humour and smiles rather than tears. It does help to talk or even just to write it all down can be of great help at times like this.
You are in my thoughts at this sad time

I'm so sorry for your loss. We lost one of our cats last week, and it helped me and my husband to talk about him -- how he looked, things he did (good and "bad", because some of those "bad" things were the most endearing). Remind yourself how happy Levi was, and, if you believe that there's an afterlife, know that he's there waiting for you. Take care. Jenn

When I lost Jimmy last year, my children and I went through ALL the photographs of the past 15 years, looking for any with Jimmy on them. When we found one we put it into a Jimmy album, which we still look through often. It's lovely to have all the photos of him together, from kitten to old age and it's still moving to look through it.

As well as making ourselves an end product of lovely album, it gave us something to do, to focus on. And it brought back lovely memories of so many things that we had forgotten during the past 15 years.

I'm sorry about your loss, I know how painful it is, especially in the early days, but it will get easier to cope with.

It is hard, no matter the age of the cat, or how long you have been attached to your feline friend. I put together a website to hopefully help people through the grief. It is still under construction at the moment www.endingpain.info

I know that you are hurting at this unexpected loss, but believe me it does get better over time. Give yourself the time to get through it, and use us when you need to talk-

I am so sorry for your loss! I too just lost my beloved Bud man 3 weeks ago.
It does help to know that he is no longer suffering, and thinking of all the special limes. I was going to post a tribute on this thread but I cannot quite do it yet. In time I will be able to. My thoughts are with you.
