My husband had to choose, the cat or our daughter
by: Anonymous

I am in intense pain after the loss of my companion of 7yrs my sweet kitty. I blame our pit bull for her death but I know it wasn't entirely her fault. I let my kitty in from being outside and normally I would guide her upstairs quietly so as not to excite the dog. There were other times when I'd let her in and she would just wait for me at the top of the stairs so I thought this was fine. Boy was I wrong, I came back into the house 5min later and there was a blood bath in here. I'm horrified to find my dear kitty pinned under the entertainment ctr and in my dog's mouth. I am yelling, screaming at the top of my lungs for my husband's help to no avail. I yell for the dog to go to the kennel and the horror of watching her drag my kitty in the kennel with her was unbearable. I managed to get the kitty away but it was too late. I found out later that my husband had to kick the cat a couple times but she had latched on to my daughter's arm after she had latched on to the dog. She had puncture wounds that required IV antibiotics and had to endure the pain and trauma of being attacked by our pet. The cat reacted out of fear when the dog chased her up the stairs and in the chaos she ran back down and attacked my daughter. Once my husband managed to kick the cat off of the dog and than my daughter, he didn't look back he was tending to my daughter's wounds. That's when I had walked in..I feel as if I can never forgive myself. I feel guilty for mourning my cat that attacked my daughter, I feel angry that my husband had to kick her to the dog who treated her as a prey. I didn't protect my beloved kitty from harm & she counted on me to do so. I'm in so much pain and so angry at the same time I don't know what to do with myself. I miss her so much. Reading your story which is similar to mine has helped.

Never Forgotten

It has been two years since I lost my beloved boxer dog Lewis and I can relate to everything you say. The hurt doesn't go away but you learn to live with it.

May our babies be at peace at the bridge until we meet them again. x

I Understand Completely
by: Dianna Petrytus

Like you I lost a pet except mine happened to be a 20 year old husky mix named Buddy. It has been exactly 17 months and 5 days since he left my side I do not think the pain will ever diminish. Once I get working again I intend to have my blue eyed boy tatoo'd on my arm permanently. I hate to admit but I seriously considered taking my own life about 7 weeks ago, right before I was going take my cocktail of choice so to speak, I looked up and saw those blue eyes staring at me from a picture I have of him and my two beautiful grand daughters. I could not go through with it. His was the first face I saw when I looked up and it was like his expression had changed to one of confusion like why mom?

I know that when we cross over our babies will be there, my beautiful blue eyed baby is running in meadows like when he was a puppy, playing and being brushed by the angels. Like you I grieve every day but if not for his loving gaze from a picture I might not be writing this to you today. His vet said he had never ever seen such a strong connection between a person and an animal, if we have animal sole mates he was mine, he could say I love you, just as clear as if you were speaking. So in closing our loved ones be they cat, dog, bird, snake or hamster touch our lives in ways we can never imagine. I know my baby boy has saved my life even though he is not physically here. Remember your babies and when our time is supposed to be up that they will be waiting with wagging tails, and motors purring waiting for their momma's to love them and hold them tight for eternity. May the Lord comfort you and keep you and your Naya and Jean in his loving embrace til then.

Best wishes and much love to you even though we do not know each other.

I was touched by your letter. My dear Katie Girl, had to go to sleep on March 6, 2010. Just when I think I am feeling better a wave comes over me. I want so much to see my Katie Girl one more time, to see her beautiful eyes. Alas, all I can hope is that she will be there on the other side. My thoughts and prays are with you.

Take Care. In Love Marlene
