Whatever the circumstances, the death of a feline companion can be a very traumatic experience - one filled with grief and sometimes with feelings of guilt. This time of loss is a vulnerable time, and
a time when a friend's caring and understanding is especially meaningful and comforting.
The loss of a beloved cat can be a truly devastating experience, sometimes causing emotions as intense as those felt over the loss of any other family member. Expression of compassion and understanding can be immensely comforting to those who have experienced the loss. A memorial contribution* in the cat's name shows your sensitivity in a way that will help other cats live healthier lives.
