Comment on Rehoming a pet: How to cope with the grief by natalie.
i had to rehome my two cats today and it’s the hardest decision i ever had to make. my mom is severely allergic and it would have been selfish to keep them in spite of her allergies. i keep getting told that i betrayed them and i should have never made the decision. deep down, i know it was what’s best for them and that they deserve to go to a family with lots of love and happiness. i didn’t expect to be so emotional but now i haven’t been able to stop crying. everywhere i look, i see them. i just keep thinking about how they trusted me so much and i let them down. i keep telling myself that they are going to find an amazing home with a great family but im so scared that they will get separated. i feel so guilty for putting them in a place so unfamiliar to them and how scared they must be. it feels like a part of me was just ripped out and i don’t know if i will ever be the same. every time i think i have stopped crying i just see a certain spot where they were and it’s like everything restarts. i know they say that grief comes in waves and im trying to remember that it will get better. i have been searching around articles and posts reading people’s stories about similar stories and they have been a great help. i know they say time heals all wounds and i hope it heals mine and all of yours.
