Practices to Heal From Pet Loss


Moving on with life and adjusting to the emptiness — both literal and metaphorical — is not something that is easy to do. We have to be gentle with ourselves and allow room to heal the loss of our beloved pet.

I designed Grief Comfort Cards after the tragic and sudden loss of my one-year-old cat, Wolfgang. I was devastated and in shock and I knew that if I did not take care of myself and grieve properly, I would not recover my joy. All of the practices and suggestions came to me in moments of meditation and reflection on what I needed to do to heal.

If you are here, I am sorry that you are suffering the loss of an animal companion. I hope that you find comfort and valuable resources here.
