This only causes great suffering for us and does not help with the problem. I have been schooling clients for many years how to get through this. Spend some quiet time with your pet, allowing that time to be spent without thinking about the problems. Just be with him, quietly and focus on the gratitude that you have for him being in your life. You will feel your heart open in time and when you do this, you will connect with him at a deeper level and you will be aware of his needs. Then, you will realize that your loving compassion is always there to guide you and your decisions will be made from that perspective instead of fear. You will know when the time is right and when it comes, you find peace and love even in the presence of grief. Good luck.
I hope I can remember this when I'm forced to face this yet again; with multiple pets, it is inevitable. Thank you.
