I woke up from my mum and brother crying saying my cat has been ran over on the side of the road I went out and saw my cat laying dead with one of his eye pop out, I’m feeling really depressed and can’t even brush my teeth , work and I haven’t ate all day, I just don’t feel like doing anything my heart hurts so much , I don’t think I can carry on with my life, this cat was a big part of my life, had him for 8 years he slept in my bed every night, woke up with me and I always feed him when I eat, I’m so upset I don’t know if I’m writing in good grammar I’m sorry.

I am so so sorry for this sudden and tragic loss of your sweet cat. Be very gentle with yourself over the next several days. All you described feeling is normal.  Pets are such an integral part of our everyday lives. I was numb, then felt a million hard emotions when my dog suddenly passed 2 1/2 months ago. Eventually the pain gets a bit less every day. But you are in the worst of it now. Hang in there and keep writing on this forum. Everyone here understands and loved their pets deeply, from what I have experienced here.
Hugs

Dear LonelyHouse,

I’m so sorry for your loss! It was tragic and unexpected, which makes it that much harder. Your grief is normal and expected so let yourself have the time - cry when you need to, reminisce when you want to, let it out and know it is ok. You are here among friends so please let us know how you are doing. I lost my beautiful Bulldog last week, also unexpectedly, and couldn’t bring myself to leave the house for many days. I also didn’t eat and cried hysterically. But that is ok. It is part of the process and you have to go through it - at your own time and pace - to find your peace. I’m wishing you all the best right now and perhaps my Fat Luey is walking your fur baby over the Rainbow Bridge. Cats always did love him! 💔

Thank you everyone’s for your reply, I just can’t stop thinking of his last final days I didn’t see him much as I was busy working, and last image of his eye pop out as he was lying dead, I always struggled with sleeping and now my cat no longer be side me in my. Bed I won’t be able to sleep, I don’t want to go to the doctor and try to get a sleeping pills as they wouldn’t understand my sadness and struggle losing a pet, my cat was the only cat I went to when I was sad and he always purr and loved me and ask nothing in return. I just can’t beating my self thinking I shoulda spent more time with him, never thought he would did this way, if he went from natural causes like ilnness or old age but not ran over like this way, every time I close my eye that image pop up, don’t know who to talk to, I don’t think il ever feel the same again.

I called my doctor and asked for ‘something’ to help me. The nurse was a pet lover, and understood my loss. They only gave me a small amount of pills and suggested I go to a therapist. I thought about a therapist, but are there therapists who deal with pet loss? I googled them and only found support pages, so here I am. It helps.

I am so sorry you experienced that and your last moments are so awful. I found my cat dead and I too can’t get the image out of my head.

Hugs honey. Call the doctor.

I just miss him so much I can’t sleep, I slept for 2 hours and had the dream that he was ran over and I re lived the same moment all again, this makes me want to avoid sleeping all together, don’t have a doctor appointment for another 6 days I don’t think il be able to sleep those 6 days without any sleeping pills, I don’t know if feeling severely depress is a normal thing, only thing I ate since he died was 4 toast, it causing me so much problemss, I don’t think Doctor will understand my suffering and this place is literally my last hope I searched all over google for help

Lonelyhouse, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I'm sure the images from finding him are very hard to endure. So is the terrible pain from grief.

Everyone is different, but yes, those emotions can affect the tummy, lead to not sleeping, depressed feelings, and a world of struggle. Most everyone here understands how much you love your cat and how devastated you feel.  The pain is enormous. 

Could you call an urgent care place and see whether they might be able to help you this week?

Hang in there. The first few days are the absolute worst. I'm so sorry you're suffering so much and I hope things start to ease.

Please hang in there, it will get better. Maybe look at photos of your cat alive and happy before you go to sleep? I know this might make you cry more, but I think your cat would want you to remember him/her alive, not the awful image that keeps replaying in your mind.
