Dealing With Cat Grief

Cat Grief 

This isn't just restricted to yourself at losing a much loved pet, we lost our cat Rollie last Monday , he was a very much loved member of our family and life is one cat shaped hole at the minute. Rollie and Jack weren't related but as described in the memory post to Rollie, they were very much like  Bert and Ernie Sesame Street. They had grown together as kittens with Jack being a few months older , when Jack wasn't looking Rollie would clonk him on the head and visa visa.


Jack has very much been pining for Rollie and that's natural , we haven't stopped talking about Rollie at all and in doing so it helps with the loss. And I think Rollie would love that as he was very much the centre of attention even though he was shy ! he demanded that you look at how beautiful he was !!


So over the past 2 weeks I've had to work through my cat grief and help Jack with his , he has been my sad cat .


In helping Jack I've at first fed him scrambled eggs / cooked chicken and sardines , I also tried feeding him small amounts , leaving his food for longer ( which didn't work ) I've also brought him special other cat foods as a treat , we are working through his eating and we are just about cracking it now . We've also changed how we leave him during the day we used to put both cats in the kitchen when we went out but now we allow him access to the house with no access to the bedrooms . He also has toys all the place it's not unusual to find a toy mouse on the stairs . It's a time process and we still feel like Rollie will come back through the cat flap at some point . Laugh cry do what ever you need to to get through .

I was pleased when Lilly's Kitchen sent Jack some food treats to try and I think Jack appreciated the kind gesture.


When changing over cat food (perhaps to Lily's kitchen maybe ) make sure you do it gradually over 2-3 weeks by mixing more and more of the new food into your old stuff. Lily's Kitchen for cats offers up a new Tate and texture thanks to the simple,natural , meaty goodness the recipes are made of.
