Grieving A Pet Cat Is No Different Than Grieving A Human Family Member Or Any Other Pet: The Kubler
Grieving a pet cat is no different to grieving a human family member or any other pet. You will go through the same stages of grief as you would for anyone else. The process of grieving a pet pet is similar to that of a human or family member. According to the Kubler-Ross model, there are five stages a person may go through to deal with grief. Denial is usually one of the first stages you have to go through. It is different for everyone. You may even skip this stage. Another stage of grief is anger. You might feel angry at your cat, yourself, a disease, or someone or something else. How you react to your feelings is important. Staying angry will not help anything. There is no time limit for grieving. Crying, sleeping a lot, not wanting to do anything, feeling lonely, not feeling wanting to eat, and other symptoms of sad are normal for you to show after your cat has passed away. Acceptance is a must for anyone who has lost a loved one. Some people need to be alone, while others need to get a new cat as soon as possible. Make a photo album, scrapbook, or shadow box to remember your pet. Tell someone what you loved about your cat. If you suspect your pet is sick, call your vet immediately. Always consult your doctor for health-related questions. They have examined your pet, know the pet's health history, and can make the best recommendations. Watch Now: How Long Do Cats Live?. . . .
