Missing Max
Wed, 08-29-2012 - 5:29am

Two days ago, my grandmother accidentally killed Max, my nineteen week old kitten, when he got under a living room chair that she was rearranging in the living room and it fell on him and killed him instantly.  We'd had him 11 weeks and all of us in the house were very attached to him and my grandmother blames herself for it happening, despite the fact it was an accident and I find myself going through a combination of sadness, denial, anger and depression.  He was a constant presence in my bedroom, sleeping on various places in the room and the memories of him feel like they are going to overwhelm me.  Our cat, Boots, whom we'd already had for over two years, keeps looking for Max, despite the fact they fought like crazy and she ended up cuddling agains my grandmother while they slept and she never does that.  I know that it hasn't even been forty eight hours since Max died but it feels like the pain and sorrow I feel will never stop.

Oh no .... no, no, no.  {{{^Max's^ Mom and Grandmom}}}  How my heart breaks for you, Boots, and your family.  What a horrible accident.  :smileysad:  Oh ddh1973, I just can't imagine the  guilt your Grandmother is feeling .... but please, please tell her that this was NOT her fault. 

I honestly can't (rationally) explain why these horrible accidents happen to the youngest souls on the planet, but somehow, someway ..... I believe your precious ^Max^ is one of the "Little Ones":   http://bridgemom.tripod.com/TheLIttleOnes.html  Your ^Max^ was with you for such a short time, so he could learn all about love....

I hope you'll be able to stay with us, and let us know how you and your family are doing.  Please know that we'll always be here for you, just as all our furloves are now with little ^Max^ at the Bridge.

Please give your Grandma an extra snuggle from us.  And please know that absolutely every emotion you are going through is completely normal ... for a grieving furfamily.  {{{heart hugs}}}

With my heart,
