Losing a cat can be devastating, and many cat parents are unprepared for the depth and intensity of the grief they’re experiencing. I have shared a wealth of resources on this site to help you cope with losing a cat over the years. Today, I’d like to share a resource I recently came across: VetVine® offers virtual pet loss support groups for pet parents.

    I found myself experiencing more grief about the death of Street Cat Bob than any of my cats. I think it’s because I was so personally involved with him, including meeting him at his own home. He was such an icon to so many people and was such a part of my life that I was devastated. I found comfort in contacting the grief support group at Blue Cross Animal shelter in London. The person that answered me wrote such insightful comments that it helped me to look at it in a different manner. I would highly recommend their services.

    This sounds like a great tool as it’s hard to get together with in person with people right now.
