When it is time to go — it is time to go.
Not one soul leaves this planet and pops through the veil to the other side, if it is not their time.
It is exactly the same with animals. They always leave this earthly place at the right moment. Often it might seem chaotic or even horrible or painful for us humans, but they usually leave in peace. Death is always natural. It is like its opposite: birth — nothing is going to stop it when the time comes.. Things are going to… and will… pop.
This is what happened to my cat as well. One minute all was well and the next he took his last breath. In my grief and sorrow it would have been easy to blame the vet for the sudden death. Boy, how much I wanted to blame someone: her or me or God or anybody. Soon I found out that it was his time to go and the damn cat was actually in a hurry! They were already calling for him to come back Home. I did intuitively understand all this in my heart and wanted to respect his soul’s plan. But it did not help with the pain. It hurts like hell when they leave this plane, often so very quickly.
Penelope Smith has written a blog post about pet loss — the emotional humans who are left behind and the peaceful animals who return back Home.
She shares cat’s and dog’s perspective on their death (in the fire).
If you have ever suffered from horrible guilt for your pet’s death, this blog post is for you.
There are many things in life that we are not able to control: death is only one of them. We just need to go with the flow: which is exactly what animals do. They are masters in living in this moment and they do not look back or forward. They are here and now and handle things as they come.
Penelope has been communicating with animals for decades. She is one of the very first animal communicators out there. She has shown the way to hundreds of others. She has written many, stunning books about animals and their inner life.
