One of the hardest things EVER is to lose a pet.... many times they're harder to lose than an actual human. Why? One reason could be that with a human, you at least can still talk with them and say your goodbyes to each other. You can say things to your pet as well, but you wonder if they understand what you’re saying or even what is happening to them.

Dogs and cats seem to have a sense of their fates...both will try to get out of the house and go somewhere secluded where they can pass away undisturbed.

Once gone, then what? A lot of pet owners bury their deceased animals out in the backyard, and maybe plant a bush, flowers, or a tree over the makeshift grave. Some have their favorite pets stuffed so they can still be around the house forever. Another option that more and more pet owners consider is a pet cemetery.
