Marge, I am glad the denial has passed, thats one step behind you. So sorry to hear about the loss of the 15 year old cat but thats a long life for a pet. Not sure of the life-span of a horse, but regardless, I am certain it is not easy to put down a horse which is loved as much as a family member.

All my best to you and your family

Both pets are gone..I worry about Sadie. She loved the cat and Horse so much but today she said "A cats a cat, a horse is a horse..I have been through so much they don't matter" I don't believe she has started the griveing process yet. I ask her to talk to her doctor nent week about attending Grievence counsleing.

P.S. the Northern Ca. storms took out my fence in the front yard................oh well..thats Mother nature for you.

Sorry to hear about your other losses. If it helps, you could look at it that John has the cat and horse now for extra company and comfort. I'd like to think that when I go, all my pets that have gone first will be waiting for me.

Smile I have just read the whole thread...

I am so sorry Marge. It was such a great fight that John fought and I was so impressed by your ability to know that you needed others - you are an inspiration. Likewise, this community is another family to turn to and it did itself so proud.

In the last 16 months, I have lost an uncle (dad's brother) to stroke (aged 69) , an aunt (my mum's sister) to breast and bone cancer (aged 64), and on 24 November 2007, an aunt who lives next to my parents whom I have known for 39 years (we all spend christmas' together), went on holiday with her husband to Phuket in Thailand and on their second day there she suffered a massive heart attack and passed away, she was 59 with no prior history. It took us 7 days to finally get through the red tape between the Thai government and the Australian Embassy, so that they both could be brought home. We are still in shock and it feels like she is still on holidays.

So I hope that this comes as a little comfort that you are never alone, even half way around the world someone is sharing your hurt, feeling your grief but most of all gaining strength from the wonderful woman and mother you are.

Luv
Cath
