My cat died today, I am so sad. Where and what happens to our pets when they die? Will I ever see them again?
RIP Crackers 04/18/1999 - 10/02/2010. My cat died today. I have had him for many years, when I divorced my ex-husband and moved in with family I decided he would be better off if I sent him to live with my DF until we move in with im. Well DF lives in Texas (Army) and we are in GA going through the court stuff to move. Well my DF came here for school for a month so while he was here, the kids and I stayed with him and would just come and check on my cat and visit with him, but because we couldn't have pets where we were staying. So while DF was here, I decided to send him on to Texas so he would have a big house to live in and keep DF company, and DF keep the cat company. Well the cat and DF left 08/29/10, the cat has been fine, and loving the house in Texas. Today DF calls me like always in the morning while he is making breakfast, and he keeps telling me he doesn't understand why the cat isn't out and about and meowing. I told him he is probably sleeping somewhere and to go find him when he is done eating. Well, the cat wasn't sleeping, he went looking for him and found him in his litter box. I was in shock, I didn't know what to say. he was only 12 years old, and I expected him to be around for a few more years. DF went and buried him today. I still am in shock, the last time I spent quality time with my cat was over two months ago, the night before they left for Texas I gave him a bath and packed up his stuff, and he was mad at me because he didn't want to get into his cat carrier thing, the next morning I tolf him bye and gave him a kiss and told him I would see him in a little while. Well, I was supposed to go to Teaxas with the kids in the end of November for a few weeks. I was so looking forward to seeing him, and knowing that he is happy and surrounded by our things and not living couped up in this small house with me and the kids. I miss him so much and I'm so mad that he died and that I wasn't there to see him and spend time with him. He had such a personality, he was so sweet. He loved to cuddle with me, and he would talk to me (meow) and loved to head butt you for kisses. My kids and him were really close too. My dog Annabelle died 15 months ago, and now my cat Crackers (I didn't name him, I got him when he was 4) died too. my question is where do pets go when they die? Will I ever see my beloved pets again? I sure do hope so. I am crying while typing this. My life has been so caotic and full of so much bad stuff in the past year, and my pets kept me company and were there to love on me through all of this, and now they are gone and I am still going through all of this. I love my pets like they are my kids.
