Nessysmum
My partner and I had to make the awful decision to have our beautiful cat nessy put to sleep on Sunday and now I just feel so hopeless. I can't cope being at home and not having her there. She uses to wake us both up every morning and now when I wake up it's so empty without her. She used to love sitting on me and now when I watch a film it's so overwhelmingly sad not to have her lying on me and purring or trying to steal my dinner. I feel physically sick and I'm not eating. Just miss her so so much and don't know how to cope.

Nessymum - My deepest condolences for the devastating loss of your beloved Nessy. The members of this forum can understand the deep pain and sorrow that comes when one of our animal family members leaves us.

Please know that you're not alone, and that we are here to support you as you grieve Nessy's absence. I know how awful the emptiness feels, and how the house is simply not the same as you go about your daily routine without Nessy. I lost my beloved cat Sammi, who was a young and healthy 2.5 year old, in early Oct this year. He was struck by a car.

I still cry every day. I miss holding his heft in my arms, brushing his gorgeous fur, scratching his neck and ears (his favourite spots), and kissing him as he napped in his favourite cat tree. I've included a couple of links for you from a thread I have (Resources/Links) that you may find useful:

Gucci - thank you so so much for your kind words and I'm so sorry to hear about your lovely Sammi. It's always heartbreaking to lose a beloved pet and family member but I can't begin to imagine the sadness you must feel to lose Sammi in such a way. My thoughts are with you and I hope that with every day your heart begins to heal more and more. I feel so dazed and empty right now but having people like you on this group makes me feel less alone.

Take care and thank you once again for your kindness,

Alex

Thank you for the link to the TED video. I just watched it and was very moved...and somehow comforted.
