Comment on Dealing with flashbacks after the death of your pet by Andy.
I lost our 8 week kitten this week, I say lost we had a decorator in wallpapering our hall way and as she was getting off the ladder the kitten ran towards her and she stood on him he started shaking and blood was coming out of his mouth or nose I’m not 100% sure. I quickly grabbed him and rushed him to the kitchen and it seemed like he was chocking on his own blood so I tried to clear his mouth with water but it didn’t seem to do anything he then calmed down and just stared at me and cwtched into me like he normally did and then the light in his eyes just went out and he just stopped moving. I knew there and then he was gone and I just continued to cuddle him into my chest tucked into my arm stroking his head. It happened so fast and I keep thinking back to it and it doesn’t seem real, like I don’t understand how it happened, it just doesn’t make sense to me. Now ever since I keep having flash backs and images of him, cuddling, playing, just random everyday stuff but it’s the actual moment and just after that’s hunting me I can’t shift the image of him and the blood and I worry that he was in pain and scarred and he looked to me to protect him, it’s tearing me apart and it feels like each day it’s getting worse and worse and I can’t think of anything else.
