So it's breaking my heart.This morning my dad found my 15mo daughter's kitty dead in the street. (She was hit.)
They were so hard to seperate!Every time she wakes up she calls "Kitty!"And all day she's been calling for the kitty, and looking around where the kitty usually stays.Not only do I miss the cat, but I tear up every time she calls for it, because she's starting to sound sad when the kitty's not coming.What do I do?I was told she'd forget, but how long?They played together all the time, so I don't think it'll be that easy.
Just say that kitty is gone and offer to play something else with her. She is too young to understand concept like death. The average life expectancy for a cat that goes outside is a mere 18 months, while the average life expectancy for an inside cat is 14 years. Point being - if you get her another cat and allow it to go outside, expect to have this conversation quite often
