My Baby Gus - R.I.P. 4/22/10

My cat Gus died on April 22 2010. That was the worse day of my life. I lost my best friend and still cry at least 4 times a day.

It's been two months. Along with guilt, I feel pain and pure sadness ...AND I sometimes wonder if I will ever be happy again.

I just wish i could have one more day with him to tell him how much he meant to me.

He was a one of a kind cat with the sort of things he did. He would follow me to the mail box everyday to get the mail, like a dog. When I had a major stroke he laid by my side never asking for anything in return.

I miss him so much that sometimes I don't know if I can make it.

Well now Snow is gone. He died on 4/29/12, the same month as you, Gus. So now I don't have both of you.

Snow had cancer. I still was crying for you, Gus, but now I have lost my dog too. You both died so young. Snow was only 9.

I don't know why God took you both from me. Its so hard. I miss you both so much.

My deepest condolences.

I just wanted to write to remind you that Gus loves you so very much and would never want to see you suffering or blaming yourself. You gave Gus a wonderful life and he will always be with you in your heart.

With deepest sympathy,

I love you so much

I miss you so much. Sometimes I still feel like your around me and sometimes I feel like you are so far away. I wish I would have done things better. Maybe if I wouldn't had a stroke I would have seen you getting sick. No one will ever take your place in my heart. I love you and miss you so much.

Today I am having a bad day. I really miss my Gus and I wish I could have just one more day with him to tell him how much I love him. I stopped going outside where he is because all I think about is him laying in the ground. Its so hard, so hard. Almost a year and I still miss you so much.

My heart truly goes out to you for the pain you have felt over losing Gus. I just lost my cat of 16 years - Fritz - two days ago, and the wounds are still fresh and very deep. I wish I could say that missing them goes away; it doesn't...but the pain will subside with time. I still mourn the loss of another cat, Snooch, who died almost 20 years ago; yet he is always with me in spirit.

One thing I have always believed is that animals come into our lives for a reason. They are soulmates of ours, there to bring us guidance, life lessons, and unconditional love. When it is time for them to leave, we are powerless to stop it...yet there is always a reason for the timing, something that is beyond our comprehension. I've found too, that very often when an animal leaves us, it opens the way to another little soul who needs our help, who needs a loving home, or even just a person to give them temporary shelter and love. It may be weeks, months, or even years, but I suspect that when you are ready, a little soulmate who needs the depth of love that you are capable of giving will come your way.

I just wanted to say thank you for giving your beloved Gus a wonderful home and for loving him as deeply as he loved you...and to let you know that you are not alone in your pain. It is something that only another animal lover can understand. Sending loving thoughts and prayers your way...

Thanks, I'm still very sad and hate that no one understands. He may have just been a cat, but he was everything to me.

I am so sorry for your loss, and I am really sorry that you do not have support or feel you do not have support. You may find this hard to believe, but I have been in your shoes several times. During the time of one of my most painful losses, I was surrounded by people who I thought would be incredibly supportive and there was no support. I also have heard this from many of my clients. They talk about losing their beloved pet and yet having to go to work the same day or that their family members and friends just don't understand.

I want you to know, however, that you are NOT alone. There are millions of wonderful individuals who have lost their pets and have felt the same way you do. You have heard from some of them here on the website and will probably hear from others over time. I understand your pain and most of my readers understand your pain and our thoughts and prayers are with you.

You will get through this. Remember that your kitty loved you and wouldn't want you to be so sad. Our cats love us unconditionally and I believe would want us to be ok. However, sadness is normal and, in my experience, time is great healer. Support helps, writing down your thoughts helps, making a memorial tribute to your beloved cat here on the website and in your home help, but nothing helps as much as the gentle passing of time. It WILL get better. I promise!

My thoughts and prayers are with you,
Dr. Neely
