Awkward question about death
There was a very interesting and moving programme about pet cemetries in the UK last week.
My wife and I were upset watching it, as it showed cat and dog owners driving their sick pets to the vet to be put down.
However, I wondered what the course of action should be after this?
We have three elderly (15yo) cats, and if one died, what would be the reaction of the other two?
They are all quite close, and groom each other/snuggle up together, but would the remaining two pine for the missing cat if she never reappeared?
Do they need to see/sniff the dead cat's body to get some sort of "closure"?
I think they do, but my wife disagrees, and says she would not feel like carrying a dead cat through the house, although she admitted she was fearful of showing the body to the other cats and them just ignoring it.
