How Do You Feel When Your Pet Dies After 22 Years?

A pet lover

One may find it difficult to understand the reason why the death of a pet, sometimes affects the owner emotionally, physically and psychologically. Pets create special bond between the owner and the animal. That bond even becomes stronger when the animal is the only friend the owner has. The way some animal lovers love their pets is amazing. 

That’s the situation of my work mate. She was twenty-three when she had her first cat, since then they have lived happily as a family for twenty-two years. Her cat was sick and the veterinarian told her that the cat wouldn’t live long, due the poor and fragile condition. I think the sickness has something to do with old age.

The bad news affected Lucy emotionally for almost two weeks after visiting the veterinary. Just last month her cat passed away peacefully in its sleep. She was completely distraught and helpless that her ex-husband is now keeping companionship with her.

According Austrian researchers, the relationship between pet owners and their dogs is very similar to the deep connection between young children and their parents. Some pet owners never recover after the death of their beloved pets. I wasn’t surprised when a woman left a will of $1.5 million dollars for her pet in New Your City, when she has children.
