"It's all very Lion King."  
My cat Nermal just passed away. Nermal was 13, which is elderly in cat years. He actually lived longer than any other pets I've ever had. I've known for a while he might not live much longer. Today he had been feeling sick and listless, so I brought him into my room to recover. I was planning on taking him to the vet in the morning. He went quickly and I was with him the whole time. There probably wasn't much I could have done, considering how quickly it happened. My only hope is that he did not suffer. I had his body cremated, and they are going to scatter his ashes at a memorial wall for pets.

On the logical side of my mind, I knew he was nearing the end of his life, and that I had made sure that he lived a full, healthy life, was comfortable and was loved. I knew all that, but even so, now that the time is finally here it still hurts. I loved Nermal, and he was the only thing in the world who loved me back. I've been crying all day and now I have a horrible headache and stomach ache. I don't know if I'll ever fully get over this, but all I can do is try to move forward.

The pain does go away. It will take months or years, but eventually when you think of him, you'll only remember the good times, without the hurt you feel now.

You may not feel like it, but can you try to lie down with your eyes closed in a dark room? Even if you only sleep for a minute at a time, it will help your mind process things, so you feel a bit less pain.

I didn't get to sleep until about 9 in the morning.
