Pet Loss Resources

This week I lost my cat, Lola, of seventeen years. She passed away at home with me, expected in some ways due to her age but the grief is still great and I will be taking some time off to process my loss. In the meantime, I wanted to pull together some resources for pet parents that go through this difficult process – it is true grief and I want to give space for pet parents to feel it for what it is and have support.  Thank you for your understanding.
