Default What is a good book for the loss of a pet?

I just lost a cat, we had to put him to sleep. What are some good books that I can read to help me cope with this? I have never lost a pet like this before and am just devastated by it all.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost both my Maltese Lady and my Siamese Sarah within one year.

There are some wonderful pet loss poems on the internet that have always comforted me. This is one of my favorites:

I ONLY WANTED YOU


They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

I wish I knew but having friends on SM or Facebook that truly understand and are there for you helps...We're always here to hold a hand or a paw in sympathy...

I have a friend who lives on the west coast and is married to a vet. She is an author and psychology professor who has written books on pet loss and given lectures. Look her up and see if any of her books look like they might help. She's very compassionate and adores pets, as does her whole family. Her name is Cheri Barton Ross.

There is a children's book by Charles Tazewell called "The Littlest Uninvited One" that tells of how animals became welcome in heaven. It's no longer available through Amazon but you might be able to find it at a library or used somewhere. It is heartwarming and brings tears to my eyes every time I read it.
