Hi Everyone!

This past Sunday we lost our family cat very suddenly. Since, our 2 year old Pug Phoebe has not been her self. She has been sleeping alot and today she didn't even want to eat ( A Pug not wanting food??) Just wondering if anyone has gone through a pet loss and how the other pets reacted?? We have had Phoebe for just about a year.

Thanks, Jen

Sorry Jen for the loss if your poor cat. As my vet told me when we lost Lily's sister, give your pug lost of attention, so her mind does not think of the fact that her friend is missing. Also you might want to get her another pet (cat or pug) to keep her company, it does help. Again sorry about your cat, and good luck with Phoebe

I am sorry to hear about your cat and the grief that your puggie is going through. I was doing some reading on dog depression and the article talked about identifying the triggering factor (i.e. loneliness) and trying to fill the void in the pets life with playing with another animal or more doggies walks etc...Maybe it'll pass soon with some extra support.

So sorry about your cat. Phoebe must've been very attached the cat to mourn like that. I hope she'll be okay, though. We had a German Shepherd once who mourned so severely after my grandfather passed away. She also just refused to eat and wouldn't budge from the front step where my grandfather used to sit. That was really sad. :(

Jen, so sorry for your loss. It certainly is disheartening to watch one pet grieving the loss of another. We went through this several years back when one of our Shih Tzus died. His brother had quite the time with it, with loss of appetite and a bona fide depressive state that lasted for awhile. What helped bring him out of it was the addition of a new dog. He stayed aloof at first, but then he gradually became his old self again and the two of them became good buddies. I wish Phoebe all the best in dealing with the loss. She'll come out of it, but it takes time.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your cat Jen. I to have a very sick cat at the moment and am having to force feed him to keep him alive. Don't really have any words of wisdom regarding Phoebe's mourning. But hopefully it will pass in time poor baby.
