Does anyone else feel like their pets are their only reason to stay alive? My cats are my only company pretty much 24/7, like friends, a partner and children all in two bundles of fur. I had two cats and lost my little girl in October, it broke my heart and I really didn't see the point in going on apart from for her brother, I loved them both the same. I know some people don't understand the bond with animals but for me they had saved my life years ago and were my everything. I had already had the worst year of my life and I just didn't see the point in anything, still don't. I kept panicking that something will happen to my boy and then I would have no reason to keep going. I even started planning what I would do so I would be prepared when the time came so I wouldn't have to go through all the aftermath of pain and grief. He needed company so I adopted two rescue cats, 3 and 12, part of the reason was as an insurance against suicide for the future, to give me reasons to stay alive. Can anyone else relate to that or have you done other things to give yourself reasons to stay?
