Grieva Pet - Martinett Gouws
Many of us share a deep love for our animal companions. It is not “just a dog” or “just a cat”, but rather a beloved member of the family. They bring companionship, fun, and joy to our lives.
When a cherished pet dies, it is normal to feel rattled by grief and loss. For most of us, this is a time of dire need for support and comfort. Losing a pet is hard enough so we’re providing a platform that is an escape from the cultural stigma associated with pet loss. This is a place where we understand the pain and grief of losing a pet. No one should feel judged for crying over an animal.
Occasionally, well-meaning people struggle to help their loved ones cope with their loss. Some may think there’s nothing they can say to make it better. Thus, they tend to avoid the grieving person altogether. It is important for the bereaved to feel that their loss is being acknowledged and they are able to talk about their feelings.
While enduring a loss is an inevitable part of owning a pet, there are a few healthy approaches to cope with the pain.
My aim is to provide the support for you to come to terms with your grief, and when the time is right, perhaps open your heart to another animal companion.
