I know this is probably the wrong place to post but I really, desperately, need some guidance. My mom has MS, and I'm in the process of being diagnosed too. Today I got a call from her that her kitten had died...she didn't know he was in the dryer and...I rushed over and took care of everything for her and her boyfriend, she is an absolute wreck and completely blames herself and I myself am sick, and can't get that image out of my mind or the thought of that little guy suffering. He was such a sweet, fun, playful kitten and meant everything to them. They've only had him since January. I don't know what to say or what to do to comfort her and I am afraid this could result in a severe exacerbation for her...maybe even for me. I just lost my kitty a year and a half ago and it still hurts so bad, but he had lived a long, full life. Poor Teddy was just starting his. Sadist thing I ever saw...I can't stop crying.

I don't know if I can say anything to make you feel better. But I am so sorry that happened. I am sorry you and your mom had to go through something like that. For me, when something horrible happens, I just try to keep myself distracted and busy maybe even have a glass (or two) of wine. I would try to do something you like, such as exercise, watching a funny movie, or even just eating ice cream...maybe there is something your mom would be interested in doing as well just to keep her mind busy? I know it doesn't solve it for very long, but I bet just you being around and distracting her would be much appreciated.

Try no to worry about creating an exacerbation, you will just stress yourself out more. So sorry :(

Thank you both. I don't think they will be ready for another kitten for quite some time. They need to allow themselves to grieve for Teddy first, he was a member of the family and is irreplaceable. But maybe, in time, they will be able to open their hearts to another kitty who needs a home. We're taking it day by day. RIP sweet Teddy Bear.

Thanks Becky...maybe eventually but its way too soon for them they need time to heal from these wounds. Getting another kitty too soon would only make things worse.
