We believe every cat person has at least once had that question popping up in mind. In addition to canines and felines, many animal species have been domesticated to become humans’ fellows. Nowadays, as technology develops at a dizzy rate and people are getting more and more isolated, pets seem to be a meaningful emotional backup for humans. Unfortunately, except for several reptiles such as turtles, tortoises, sliders, et, pets mostly don’t have long enough life spans to befriend their owners for their whole life. It will come, the moment of saying goodbye to the pet.
Losing an animal pal will be sure as heartbreaking as losing a closest friend. Therefore, the pet owners going through that grief will need care and sympathy from others. A Redditor, with his user account name u/Sauron209, desired to talk about his twenty-one-year-old moggie’s pass away with the cozy subreddit community r/Pets. The original poster revealed being crashed and falling from grace every time he recalled his furry pal’s souvenirs.
To discard the sorrow and sadness, the OP looked for soothingness from his family and co-workers, but nothing appeared to perform as he wished. Everyone didn’t find his cat passed away desolating and just cheered him up simply with some cliche words, which was opposite to what they would do for a dog person in the same situation. He felt sorry for his cat along with many other felines that people were so cold-hearted toward them.
In the comment section, Redditors sent their consolation to the OP and wished him the best after his furball passed away. They also told about their uncommon pets like rabbits, squirrels, hamsters, and et and empathized with him for the non-pet people’s reaction to these animals gone away. They explained that people who didn’t form a bond with a pet would never be able to comprehend the loss. Hence, if the OP required emotional help over his pet loss, he could look online for expert websites and social communities for pet owners.
Some Redditors assumed that people often get attracted to dogs because of their excitement toward humans. As a result, people were unconsciously impressed and would show more care for those canines. Meanwhile, felines and other animals didn’t have that characteristic, even though they expressed affection to their owners in their own way, many people couldn’t recognize it and give these angelic creatures what they deserved.
