I don't know where pets go but out of sadness and desperation, I tried to reach him & feel he's in transition.. I know it sounds strange... This is gonna be so tough ..

Nothing will feel the same. :(

Pinkskymelody,

I invite you to look at the reference, below entitled "Autobiography of a Yogi", written by Yogi Paramahansa Yogananda. Use the "find" function in your browser and type the word "delusive" in it.

Please understand that the word has nothing to do with your heartfelt feelings (I felt the very same when all my pets died, too).

I believe the resulting sentences you'll see which contain that word will help you.....very, very much, especially when you get to the part where Yogananda relates the story of his pet deer!

Excerpts you'll see from typing in the word "delusive":

"I realized anew that God wants His children to love everything as a part of Him, and not to feel delusively that death ends all."

“Rejoicing at the immortality of friendship, they realize the indestructibility of love, often doubted at the time of the sad, delusive partings of earthly life.

....whether the "family member" is called Mom, Dad, Grandma, Sis, Friend, or "Lovebird".

Your Lovebird may seem to have died....but Love never does.

Hope this helps you see why......"Nothing need ever feel the same", again.
