When Pets Grieve
First and foremost, thanks to each and every one of you who has taken the time to extend your condolences and memories of our Precious Tsunami as well as share the loss of your own precious pets with us. I’m sorry I have not been able to write to each of you individually, but my bandwidth is a little narrower than usual at the moment.
I want to let those of you who have lost pets know that next Friday, August 28, is the 5th Annual Rainbow Remembrance Day, an event hosted by my friend Deb Barnes at Zee and Zoey. I plan to commemorate Tsunami on that day and I encourage those of you who are able to celebrate the lives of your pets as well.
This is the first week that we’ve been living in the aftermath of Tsunami’s farewell and trying to adjust to yet another new normal (how many of these does 2020 hold?) I won’t sugar coat it – it’s been tough. We can all sense the shift in energy in our environment – Tsunami added so much love and life – and we miss him every moment of every day.
Magellan is particularly taking his absence hard. He has been spending most of his days and nights mournfully curled up by the door where he last saw Tsunami and the sight has been heartbreaking. At night, when we call him to come to bed with us, he meows back as if telling us he is awaiting his brother’s return and heads downstairs for door duty. Although he has slowly started to spend more time with us these past few days, he continues to spending a lot more time nesting in “safe” places like his cat house as he sorts through his grief.
If you have any helpful tips for helping Magellan deal with his loss, please feel free to share them in this week’s comments.
Have a wonderful week and thanks for the gift of your friendship!
