My Cat Is Dying: What Do I Do? Navigating Emotions, Decisions, and Options for Healing is Book Three in the Pet Bereavement Series, an insightful and well-written work on the science of grief for lost pets. A lot happens from the moment one gets the news that their pet is traversing its last moments of life to the moment it actually dies. One goes through emotional and psychological pain, the denial phase, and the sad feeling of waking up hoping to hear the meows of one’s cat or feel its fur against one’s skin. Every loss is painful. But it can be a path toward a deeper connection with one’s self and a deeper level of healing. In this new book, Wendy Van de Poll offers powerful tools and insights to guide readers through the process of bereavement.
My Cat Is Dying: What Do I Do? is beautifully written and the author’s voice comes across as compassionate and understanding. Here is a tool, a companion, and words from a friend who seems to touch the pain of her readers with warm and tender hands. Wendy Van de Poll’s work is groundbreaking, accessible, and written in a conversational style that will appeal to many readers. It is interesting to see how she gives flesh to her words by carefully weaving real life experiences into the writing. As I read through these pages, I became increasingly aware that the tips graciously offered will become helpful to anyone suffering any kind of loss, from a best friend, to a family member, to a special pet. It is a useful companion to those suffering from grief of any kind, a highly recommended self-help book.
