I'm here to find people who understand my grieving

I moved 1200 miles away from everyone I was familiar with 6 months ago.

On February 12th 2015

I made the decision to put my 7 year old cat shadow down at the vet while on a three way call with my mom and aunt.

Over 2 weeks he became very ill

We were hoping it was a virus but the antibotics didn't work and it came down to kidney failure.

I have never been through this before

Especially not alone

It was the hardest decision of my life

It's been four days and I still feel him everywhere

I've seen so many signs of him one being very confusing to me which I'll share now

I came into my room Saturday night and shadows old tag from my moms house was laying on my floor in front of my nightstand... Earlier I found it and accidentally dropped it BEHIND my nightstand trying to put it on my cork board but then my roommates stepmom showed up when I was trying to get it and she distracted me and I forgot about it but when I came home that night it was laying in front of my nightstand the stand would have had to be pulled out to retrieve it. I feel it was him who found it for me and left me to find it again...

It made my head spin and I lost control of my tears

I've made a photo album of him that Ive been carrying everywhere with me I find comfort in it

It's only been 4 days and it feels like the pain is never going to go away

I still see him in the backyard chasing bugs

I still look for him upon waking

I still feel him nearly trip me while making my coffee in the kitchen

He's everywhere to me

He was the only familiar thing I had when I packed up my life and moved from Ohio to florida

My heart is in shambles

He was my best friend

I also started a go fund me page in hopes to raise money to make a cuddle clone of my beloved shadow

I put hundreds of dollars into trying to make him better and now I'm unable to afford to create this

Here's the link if you want to help me

I'm so sorry for your loss Hdgrove  -  Shadow's personality sounds a lot like my 10 year old cat Simba.  He got sick over a week or so period too and ended up just going downhill, it ended up he had cancer.  I decided to put him to sleep 3/16/2015. I still can't believe he's gone. We'll never forget them but hope the pain gets better with time.

I nope you find comfort in your love. I am really grieving my dog Max right nkw so I understand...

This hollow/empty feeling. This absence in the house. Its too much to bear. He was there for me in more ways than I knew.
