Comment on Dealing with flashbacks after the death of your pet by Amy.
Hi my 19 year old cat died 9 days ago. She was fine up until 4 days before she passed. Her breathing seemed laboured. The vet said she may only have a couple of weeks and did offer to put her to sleep there and then but I asked if I could bring her home overnight so me and my children could spend time with her. She seemed settled and relaxed at home for 2 days and not at all suffering. Then suddenly she went into respiratory arrest and it was the most horrific few minutes of my life and I can’t get over it. I miss her so very much and the guilt of not putting her to sleep sooner is killing me. I keep reliving it over and over. She was literally my shadow and I’m broken.
