The Loss of a Pet and Their Life on The Other Side
by Sylvia Browne
It is little surprise that we love our pets so much. They are our constant companions and friends. Our pets give us unconditional love. Animals are very special, as their souls are simply perfect. Our pets come to Earth just to be with us. They have no other reason to be here than to spend their lives loving us and spending time enjoying life with us. What could be more beautiful than that?
I loved my dog Jolie, with all my heart. As an animal lover, you can imagine the pain I felt when the vet told me Jolie was not going to live. She had congestive heart failure and the doctor suggested we put her down. At the moment of her passing, I saw a magnificent swirl of white light. I closed my eyes and immediately saw Jolie running (not walking) through the tunnel that leads to The Other Side.
Losing a pet can be hard, as the love we feel for our pets is unconditional. Please take comfort, though, and even joy, that all animals live happily forever on The Other Side. They frolic and play while they wait for us. In fact, they are so excited to see us when we come over that they push everyone else out of the way to be first in line to welcome us Home.

This one baffles me. I can't find one of my cats named Peaches who is an indoor cat. It's like he's disappeared into thin air. His brother is still here and howls for him every day. Strange things have been happening in my house like voices calling "here kitty". I can hear people talking downstairs who want to come upstairs but are afraid of the cats sitting a the top of the stairs like sentinels. I'm pretty perceptive of supernatural things and I have the feeling Peaches was taken. I miss him so much and would like to know where he is.

We lost our beloved dog Patch on January 8, 2007. He was our buddy and we miss him terribly. Has he ever come to visit us? Will we see him again? I love you and hope to talk to you one day about my Mother, I miss her. I hope you got the pin and card I gave you on your last visit to Detroit. Love you much, Jan

Dear Sylvia, Thank you for helping all of us understand that our pets are still with us after they pass. Knowing that helps a bit with the grief that we experience. My husband and I have had many experiences of our pets coming to visit us but it wasn't until about a year ago that we understood what we were experiencing was. We lost three of our pets in less than 6 months. They were old, very sick and we knew it was only a matter of time. We know we are given the pets we have because of their special needs. Our one dog had epilepsy starting at 7 months of age. She lived almost 8 years with loads of pills to take and suffering seizures. Many people told us to just put her down but we didn't. Why? We loved her even more for her problems. When the next dog developed cancer, we started chemo. We went into $15,000 of treatments but we had him for over 2 more years. If we wouldn't have done that, he would have died within 3 months. He was well worth it, he handled the chemo, handled the heart medications when he developed valve disease but in the end, he got tired of it all. We miss him terribly. We miss the two cats (aged 15) who passed during the 6 month period. The dog and one cat were two weeks apart. I know I constantly ask myself if there wasn't something else we could have done. Did we make the right decision to put them down (especially the cats who had renal and liver failure). The doctors told us we did make the right decision but there is always that question that nags at the back of the mind. WE have experienced the cats and the dogs but it's hard not to be able to hold them or see them when we know they are there. We have even heard the dog bark in the middle of the night which he did when he heard something, just one bark. But, Sylvia, thank you for letting us know that they visit us even though we can't hold them again until we pass on. That they aren't just gone out of our lives forever after they have given us so much love and joy. Thank you. Lynn

Dear Sylvi- I joined a site called Rainbow's Bridge, started by a lady named Ginny- and it has brought comfort- I have always had Pet's or they had me, and for 40yrs I had to suffer with the pain of lossing a pet and no one to comfort me- I would pray to God and ask him to take good care of them. I am happy that more and more people are understaning that it's okay to cry to mourn and to ask God to take care of their precious companinons. and that some day we will all be together. hugs Tencia

In May my husband and I had to put down our cat Harley. We got him one month before we got married. That was 14 years ago. He got so sick in the end, we weren't sure what to do. My husband took him to the vet and he said it was time. The night he died I could still hear him and feel him with me. I also had a dream of him the next night and he was spry and healthy. After that I knew he was okay. I miss him very much.

Hi. I love my pet very much also. His name is Bandit and he is 15 years old. Hes really starting to show his age and I'm afraid that we won't have him much longer. It is very comforting to know that he will live happily forever on the Other Side, and we will be together again some day. Thanks.

Hi every pet lover! I had a wonderful pet by the name of Whimpy. Whimpy was the best cat anyone could ask for. In his prime he was an orange 22 pound chunk of love. My mom adopted him outside of a bar when he was just a kitten. I can only guess how old he was when it was his time to past I think he was about 15yrs. This is a sad but healing story. Two summers ago I backed over him in my car. I was so crushed and scarred. My son who was only 2yrs at the time and had to be in the car to witness me and the accident. I tell you what he was my saint I am crying hysterically and he the whole time my 2yr old kept telling me don't worry mommy everything is going to be alright, over and over again. When I finally got to the vet and we were in the waiting room he would repeat everything will be ok mom and hug me then he would go about playing for a few minutes. He was so calm and so brave. I tell you this entire sad long story because god does come through in ways we don't understand until later. My son knew exactly what was happening and knew exactly what to tell me the mother who should be strong that everything will be ok. When I look back on Whimpy life he was very sick before I took his life, arthritis, stomach/digestive problems. I was in and out of the vet spending thousands of dollars a year to keep him with me. I have come to understand that he really wanted to go home and because I would not let him go he choose a quick and I hope painless way to exit. I needed to take his life because if it had been anyone else I don't know if I could have ever looked at them the same. I tell this long story in hope that it will give someone the strength or closure they may not have. I have closure I know he knew what he was doing and I know he is running for the first time in years waiting for me and my mom. Everyone has lost a love one and I hope you too can feel the peace that no matter what when or how young the loved one is that they are with you always and there is a reason if you look deeply into the situation. I feel the love for everyone!
