With the Recent Loss of our Beloved Cat Tobey this book helps quite a bit with our Grief. As The Author says some people may say he was like a Family Member, No this is not true, He was a Family Member for 18 Years. He gave us Many Happy Memories and we will never Forget Him.

This book is always available in the Plane Tree Health Information Center @ Cupertino Library. GL 209 K 2012

Excellent, practical advice on dealing with the death of a beloved pet whether the pet dies of natural causes or must be euthanized. The author does not descend into emo treacle. Mr. Katz lives on a farm and has owned many pets. His words carry the weight of experience.

Read this book when I knew my dog was nearing the end of his long life. Helped me greatly to make the decision the next morning not to prolong his suffering.
