I don't know if I have a right to post a discussion in the group, so if I dont I guess delete it.
but I really need some help getting over my grief.
october 4th, my 21st birthday, my 2 beloved pet cats went outside and never came back.
every day since then I have looked for them, called and gone to shelters and posted fliers on all houses in my neighborhood and the neighborhoods nearby.
I've posted their ad on craigslist, in newspapers, some of my neighbors even took the ad to their workplaces.
I can't find them.
for a while I cried and cried, then I slowly got over them.
now it is christmas time, and there will be no pictures of them this year, only last year's christmas. and those pictures are on an sd card I can't find.
I have been so depressed the past few days. every picture I look at, I cry.
I put out more fliers, and I know I get on my neighbors' nerves yelling for them all the time.
people just dont understand. "they're just cats. go get another one."
well your kids are just kids. go make more.
my pets are my children. I love cats, and despite that I have only had 2 cats (aside from these 2) my entire life. one I lost to old age, and one I still have who is getting up there and will be gone in a few years. then these two, it was like they were ripped out of my life.
I have a third and 4th cat that I adopted in my search of finding the two I lost, but you can't replace something you've loved.
it is hard to find people who understand, and none of you might understand, but I need help getting over them. I miss them so much.
even my family has told me "shut the fuck up and get over it, they're just cats."
