Pet memories, after our furry friends, these memories support us. A pet brings the whole family together and acts as an ingredient to nurture love! And the hardest part of having a pet is losing them much too sooner. Not only is it excruciatingly painful, but it often leaves us in trauma for some time. The intense pain and emptiness that occurs after they’re gone from our lives, is something unimaginable. There is no correct way to work through this process as every individual walks a different path with their pet. This feeling when they’re gone is as if the same grievance as of a family member’s death.

Why do we love our pets?

The deep bond shared with our pets has made some of us realize that those pets mean more like a family member. The very short time they spent with us became one of the sweetest moments of our life that only stays in our memory. Sadly, with the passing time, the memories even fade.
