This booklet helped me a lot when my cat died in November 2013. Besides basically being a reliable "guide on grief", it has various people's personal stories peppered throughout (no more than a paragraph to a page each), some of which brought me to tears. The one about the Beta fish, for example ? I know, it's a fish, but something key that the mother writes in that story is possibly one of the most achingly true--but also kinda beautiful--things about the relationship between owner and pet.

The book allowed me to take time out of my day to process my grief. After he died, I thought I had handled it well, was processing just fine. But many of us tend to brush past the event and then it's onto the next thing, because when life is busy it tends to sweep us up in its current. I did the affirm-life-after-tragedy-by-grabbing-life-by-the-balls-and-enjoying-myself-to-the-fullest thing after my cat died, predominantly by befriending an up-all-night partier a couple weeks after and losing myself in that for a few months. I don't regret that, this guy's gone on to become a good friend. But those quiet bus rides back and forth from meeting up with him downtown, during which I would pull out this book and read a passage or chapter or two ? Provided the healthy balance between livin' it up and dealing with grief.

I do miss my cat when I think of him, 'specially when I come home and wanna scoop him up, or when sitting in my chair and wishing for a lap cat...this barely scratches the surface...

As an animal lover myself, as a certified hospice bereavement counselor, and as another author who's written about pet loss and specialized in pet loss counseling since 1992, I loved this book. Like all the rest of Alan's books, this one is clearly stated, clinically accurate and beautifully written -- and it comes from the heart of the author's own personal experience with pet loss. Because Alan Wolfelt is so very well known and respected in the field of death education and counseling, I believe his book about pet loss will do more than help bereaved animal lovers. I think it will lift the experience of pet loss into the mainstream of professional grief literature where it rightfully belongs, and that alone is a cause for celebration. For many years I have felt that uninformed and insensitive mental health professionals can do more damage to disenfranchised bereaved animal lovers than any member of the lay public can do, because they should know better -- and it is up to those of us who know the agony of pet loss to teach them. I want to thank Alan for writing this book, and I wish him every success in its sales and distribution. For my part, I've already listed it under the BOOKS ABOUT PET LOSS category on the Articles and Books page of my own Grief Healing Web site ([...] I've recommended it to both pet loss support organizations with whom I consult, and I will continue to recommend it to my clients and participants in my pet loss support groups as well.

I couldn't put this book down until I finished it. It is never easy losing a pet or a person. Grief hurts but this book helps one make some sense of it.
