So sorry to hear your sad news.Our pets are such special members of the family.I think it it is often underestimated how much so. My animals have always been a huge part of our world,but since losing my darling husband,I can honestly say I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the animals.They are what keep me going. Don’t listen to anyone who belittles your loss,you will have a huge void in your life and you must allow yourself to grieve.Sending hug’s your way
