I miss my cat... should I?

I’m new here, and I’m not sure if this type of thing this place is for, but anyway… I know this might sound strange to some people, but I felt very close to him. I felt like even though he was a animal he was someone I could talk to…

It is totally okay to miss your cat. Back in August my cat passed away and it is still hard to get over. He was my buddy and was there when no one else was. Sometimes I think animals can sense when we are upset. Take as much time as you need to grieve over your cat.
