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]http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0764579304/drwallysife[/url] There's also a list on the APLB website of other books on the same subject: [url]http://aplb.org/resources/books.html[/url]

And I highly recommend checking out the chat room at the APLB: [url]http://aplb.org/chat/[/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.
