'Cat Food Signs'

by Donna
(Scotland)

I lost my cat only yesterday, which is why I am accessing these sites - I need some comfort. My cat was only a year and a half. She went missing four days ago and I found her yesterday - she had been knocked down by a car. When I found her it was obvious that she had just recently died so I dont know where she has been for the past few days. The vet seems to think that maybe she had been lost or trapped and had eventually found her way home.

This was my first cat and I have been devastated and have cried almost constantly for the past 24 hours - I am actually surprised at my reaction. Anyway, I have just been sitting in my lounge when I heard a loud noise from my kitchen. When I went in I saw that a packet of her cat food had fallen from the top of the fridge! Now I know that the fridge 'shudders' now and then - but the food has been up there since she went missing four days ago and hasn't fallen off.

I am taking comfort from it, in that maybe she is sending me a little sign to let me know that she is ok. It is certainly helpiing to make me feel better.

Truly a sign
by: Teresa

Donna, what a sad story. This has happened to me but I got no sign from baby Maggie. HOWEVER, more recently, within the last 5 months, two of my young cats were fatally wounded. We had got Charlie to replace Phoebe, as her brother was missing her. A few days after Charlie's death I found 2 tiny balloons covered in stars and tied together with White ribbon. It was as though my babies were telling me they had found each other and were safe. So, yes I do believe the falling cat food was a sign from your kitty. Stay strong and be comforted!!

I know how you feel
by: Machelle

I just lost my best friend Shadow 2 days ago. He was only 4 years old and no matter how we tried, he just would not stay in the house. He too was hit by a car. I came here to look for other people to share my grief with and who wouldn't belittle my feelings by saying "it was only a cat". I never knew I could feel such grief for a cat, but he was so special. I have not felt his presence yet but I'm open to him paying me a visit. I would find it very comforting. Our dog paid me a visit on the day he passed on and it really helped. Of course we would give anything to have them back, but to get a sign from them helps let us know they haven't forgotten about us.

We feel your pain
by: Steve

I am coming out of where you are --(Mitze Eyes of Blue in poetry)I still miss her but with talking to people and reading various sites I am coming to terms with it. I still miss her so much and would love to see her again but her time had come and I (and all who have to make the decision)could not let her suffer. It will take some time but there will be a time that you think more of the happy times then the end.

As far as the deal with the devil, in my conversations with my father who has been through this with his dog, he added that the devil takes joy in the misery and the pain that we go through. When you come to terms with it you will be able to celebrate the life of your loved one which will far outweigh the end. I am sorry for your loss and good luck to you.

I'm So Sorry
by: Hilary

Your loss is felt equally by everyone who has ever loved and lost a pet...

Sometimes I wonder if we sign a contract with God or the Devil when we let a pet into our hearts and lives. It's like your payment of pain is equal to the depth of your love.

I'm so sorry for your loss, and please know you are not alone.... I would suggest creating a Pet Loss Diary.. It has really helped me in my situation. It will be two weeks tomorrow, July 17th for me, and the pain is still just as strong.
