Grief and loss

Whether you are facing the heartbreak of your cat's death, want help with difficult issues like euthanasia, have a cat who has gone missing or need someone to talk to about your loss: we are here for you

We understand just how much your cat means to you and what you may be going through if your pet is missing, had to be rehomed, is nearing the end of their life or they have recently passed away. We have produced a range of resources, information and support to help you at this very difficult time. You may also wish to look at the ways we can help you celebrate the life of your cat.
