Pet Loss

Tuesday, September 12, 2006


On August 29th I lost my dear pet Mimi-Bob, a Russian Blue cat whom I've had with me for over 15 years. It truly nearly broke my heart. Has any one of you lost a pet that is near and dear to your soul? How have you handled it?


  • I am so sorry for your loss. We had a beloved family dog that was the one stable force in our chaotic family and I never got to tell her how much I loved her until many years after she died. I do believe we can communicate with our loved ones who have passed on. I hope you can find some comfort in learning how to speak with your precious MimiBob .. I know she is with you each and every day. My love goes out to you both.

  • Dianne,
    Thank you so much for your comment. It has meant so much to me. Mimi-Bob is still with me...I can feel her. How fortunate we all are to have these wonderful souls in our lives.

  • Judy,
    I'm so sorry about Mimi Bob. I know how painful it is to lose an animal companion. Their love is pure and untainted by agendas and we owe them so much. Your Mimi Bob knew how much you loved her and I'm sure she's still with you. I lost my 18 year old cat, Pink, to renal failure in June of this year, but in August, I saw him walk his well-worn path through my kitchen. A "residual haunting?" Perhaps, but I believe that he chooses to be with us, the family who will always love him.

  • I'm sure our pets stay with us after they have left this physical world. I lost a pet cat named Tigger years ago that had been in the family since I was in elementary school.
    Even though he spent his life at my mother's house, I brought Tigger to my house to live with me for a few days because I wanted to be close to him in the short time he had left. Tigger had failing kidneys. He would walk to his water bowl, take a little drink, but would then turn away unable to drink any more.
    The moment he passed away I felt a thirst unlike anything I had ever felt before in my life. It was as if I could feel Tigger's thirst.
    Later I told my mother about this and she told me that she had experienced the same intense thirst at the same moment when Tigger died.
    I believe Tigger had traveled to my mother's house, about ten miles away, to see her again after he passed on.

  • I understand how hard it is. I have a dog (golden retriever female) and it is very difficult for me even to leave alone for few hours.
    I am very far in Athens Greece and also just seen your film. You were fantastic. I wish I could help.
    Sad is some people around us do not understand and do not share the same feelings about pets.

    I also saw the film "the night of living dead" and I want ot say you were fantastic. I wish I could help but I am far in Athens Greece.
