Your Pet Loss Diaries
'Audrey & Wolfgang'
Wolfgang was a gold and white tabby domestic short hair with the softest fur and beautiful almond shaped green eyes. He was a big boy and had a funny way of running that I'll always miss.
When did you lose Wolfgang?
I lost Wolfgang on November 8, 2011. The vet took an x-ray, he had fluid in his lungs. That was the day he didn't come home.
At which stage of pet loss grief do you feel you are currently at?
Or how are you feeling right now?
It's been 2 1/2 months and I still cry every day. I've been trying to go one day without crying but I'm still sobbing. I don't know what stage of grief I'm in but it's not good. Can't seem to move on and things don't look like they're going to get better. I still miss him so much every day, can't think about getting a new cat. I just want Wolfie back. I'm not working now and I live alone and I'm constantly reminded of where he slept and sat and played.
Audrey and Wolfgang's Story so far
I brought Wolfie home from a shelter on October 14, 2000. They told me he was about 2 years old and was a stray that was left on their doorstep. We had a wonderful 11 years together. He's been with me through 2 moves, a job loss and my mother passed away almost a year now and I felt I could get through anything as long as I had my little Wolfie.
The hardest part of losing him has been the fact that I never got to say goodbye. He needed to be put down soon and I couldn't make it to the vet's in time. I told them to go ahead without me. I will always feel guilty for not being with him at the very end. My only consolation is that the doctor and 2 assistants (one was my sister-in-law) were there to pet him and reassure him in his last moments.
Wolfie - Momma's so sorry sweetheart, I hope you can forgive me. I will meet you at Rainbow Bridge - please look for me.
