Pickles and Bubbles

Sadly I have lost a cat and kitten in less than five months and I am very depressed. My lovely cat Bubbles dissapeared five months-ago and I bought a kitten called Pickles who is only seven months old. I have today discovered that she is dying from Leaukemia and FIV Virus and will have to put her down today...I am at my worst and I do not know how to tell my 11 year old daughter who also griving for Bubbles and know will have to tell her his dreadful news about Pickles which she has chosen in April 2012 this year.
I desparately need help with my depression and I am not in a good place right know? Why hav e I lost my two cats in less than five months?It is so unfair and I can't understand it why us? Why my family? What have we done to deserve this? How can I go on now?
I am not griving and right now I am so upset...

Dear Doreen,
Thank you for your kind message and I shall print it and frame it for our family..
My heart is so empty and I feel nothing but sadness. My daughter asked me today, " Mummy are our cats watching over us?" I said yes, darling and I could feel tear strolling down our cheeks.
It is so, so sad to lose something you love!
Thank you.

I am sorry for your loss of Pickles and Bubbles. We question Why us? What did we do to deserve this? Often Nothing. None of us deserves to lose someone or a pet in life. Why us? is always part of us feeling that we are SAFE. Nothing can touch us or disturb our comfortable way of life. Sadly we live in a world full of LOSS. Loss of life, pets, jobs, homes, health, money, etc. Few of us, if anyone, gets away with NO HARM in our lives.
My sister told me when her son was young he loved his rabbit. One day it died and she didn't know what to do and how to tell her son. She panicked then phoned her husband at work to contact the man they bought the rabbit from. They told him the story. He managed to provide another one for them from his litter and when her son came home, it was as if nothing happened and he didn't notice anything. Years later she told him about this. He was older and more mature and saw the funny side of this. What remained was the Love of his parents in doing what they could to salvage the situation for his happiness.
