Books on Pet Loss
What are some good books on pet loss? I want to read one to help me cope with the loss of my kitty. I have never lost a pet like this and it is really hard on me.

I haven't read it personally, but have heard good things about this one :

Saying Good-Bye to the Pet You Love: A Complete Resource to Help You Heal by Lori A Greene

A really good book on dealing with the death of a pet is by Dr. Wallace Sife, the founder of the Association of Pet Loss and Bereavement: [url][/url] There's also a list on the APLB website of other books on the same subject: [url][/url]

And I highly recommend checking out the chat room at the APLB: [url][/url] They are hosted several times a week by counsellors trained specifically in coping with pet loss. If anyone understands what you're going through, they do.

Thanks so much. I will have to check out the chat and the books as well. My heart is so heavy right now and I just do not know how to feel or what to do about it.

If you want something like a work of fiction, The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein will warm your hearts.

It has nice reviews in Goodreads. I'll try to search an ebook for my Kindle.
