My cat Nicole died July 14 2009. I can't stop crying. Nicole was 16 years old. I miss her so much. She died in my husband's arms Tuesday night.
My heart aches for you. I know your pain. It is and will be a difficult time for you for awhile. I am so sorry. Hold on to the good memories. Be grateful she lived until age 16. Also, be thankful she died in you husband's arms which must have been soothing to her and comforting to you.
Don't be afraid or embarrassed to cry. You have lost a family member and it is normal to cry. It is part of healing. Only time will ease your pain, but it will happen, but of course you will never forget her or stop loving her.
My best to you,
