Worried about grieving cat
On Saturday my little furry boy Bob passed away very suddenly and the age of just four. There had been no signs and he was happy healthy and active, even eating and drinking prior to his passing. He just dropped dead on my bedroom floor.
I'm obviously devastated but I think that my other cat is having a hard time as well. She was with him when it happened and was guarding him when I found him, so she knows what has happened. She was his momma and it was pitiful to see how she was reacting after we got home from the vets.
Tahllula is not the most affectionate cat and she prefers to be left alone most of the time, just comes for a pat a couple of times a day. She has almost been constantly with me since it happened, only leaving me to go an have a quick nap up stairs. I've caught her licking some of his fav spots where he used to lie and especially my duvet, it almost looked like when she used to groom him. Also for the first time ever, she has been sitting on my lap today and actively seeking lots of pats. She's also crying out a lot.
I'm trying to make a fuss of her and I don't think that she has ever had as many treats in one day before, but is there anything that I should be doing for her that I am not and also does anyone have any idea about the licking?
I'm so worried about her.
