Hello everyone - I thought I'd post links to sites that I've found especially helpful. The first one addresses directly that terrible, initial, disorienting shock of having lost a beloved companion. Please feel free to add any other links to articles or sites that you've found really get to the point and offer solid substance.

https://beautifulmo.simdif.com/managing-grief.html (I've taken the liberty of including Pennie's wonderful site about her beloved horse, Mo. There are a plethora of excellent links, which I'll specify below. It's definitely worth checking out her blog.)

**I can't seem to add any more links, so will continue in a separate post (I'm not the most tech-savvy!)

Dear Gucci,
I second this! Those links are very good and will be so helpful.
I'm especially glad you included Pennie's beautiful blog about Mo. Blessings to them both.
If I find any good ones I will remember to post them here.
Hold the love like a little light. It is all you have, or will ever have, to find your way home.

And here's one I found on The Conscious Cat website:

Animals Can Teach Us the Value of Vulnerability

Oh...and the Poem in this one brought tears to my eyes:

I Rescued A Human Today

Leathur/Mistymama - Thanks for any further contributions to the links/resources!

I'd read that lovely poem 'I rescued a human today' somewhere else. I agree that while we often feel we're the ones who've done something for our animals, it is usually they who bring such joy and teach us so much.

The owner of the Conscious Car site, which I'd been dipping into for several years, recently lost one of her cats as well.
