I am very sorry for your loss of Penelope. I know exactly how you feel. I had to put my beloved Sparky to sleep 3 weeks ago today. In the beginning I came to this website several times a day even if it was to just read posts. I cried my heart out for at least a week. Then I made a memorial garden area in my yard. I even had a memorial stone made for the garden. I was happy it arrived before Christmas. Today was especially sad as I had a toy for him that I had already purchased that I knew he would really like. It is hanging in his stocking. I just ordered an ornament for my tree with his picture on it. I think I am going through a stage of fear of forgetting him so I am creating many reminders. I also have my dogs sister. She is grieving as well. We are giving her extra love. I don't think you could love too much.
I am so sorry for your loss too. It's so hard to lose a fur family member. Your other animals, will also be grieving, talk to them, it will comfort them as well as you. You can't ever give too much love. You all just need to let the grieving happen. I know how hard it is, but we will be here for you. It's too bad the site was down when you first posted. I saw your post and felt bad that I couldn't get on the thread to post. However I said a prayer for you and will continue to. Judy
We lost our beloved Bert in June & I still miss him so very much. We have since adopted 2 new cats from the Humane Society; both of which were there for over a year. They don't replace Bert by any means; but it gives us joy to know we've given a home to a needy animal. We now have 4 cats--3 from the shelter & 1 stray that showed up in our yard. We love them all & they bring us much joy & comfort. Bert's close companion, Ernie, grieved deeply & we were afraid we were going to lose him, too. He started to acknowledge Butterball's presence after about 2 months & has again become a playful cat. He still goes in the garage & looks for Bert; but plays with the 3 girls & defends his position as head of the house. I pray you'll find comfort in knowing you're not alone, & that there are other animals who need your love & care.
