Would you put your pet in the closet and not check on them? Really! What a selfish question. Just because you don’t see suffering doesn’t mean that it is not happening. At the end your pet needs you now more than ever. Suffering in this world is inevitable but companionship through suffering is as important in pets as it is in people. Remember that while living this is still the pet you love and have loved. It is hard not to withdraw. However, this is a struggle at the end of which you may find peace.
