Seniors Who Lose Their Pet

seniorwithpetWhen seniors have pets, they often share a very powerful emotional bond. That’s why a senior may need a lot of emotional support after a beloved pet dies. You can help by encouraging them to talk about their pet and what it meant to them. Give them time to grieve openly. You may also wonder if it’s a good time to replace the pet. Jane Shaw, director of the Argos Institute at Colorado State University says that some people want a new pet fairly quickly to re-establish an important routine. Others may need time to adjust. So ask your friend or relative what they would prefer. If he or she needs more support than you or other friends can offer, suggest a grief counselor or a pet lose support hotline. It’s very difficult for anyone when a beloved pet dies. It’s even difficult to look at their belongings like their dog bed or cat bed, their dishes, leashes etc. When my rabbit passed away, it took me five months to get rid of her pet carrier. Grieving is an important step in the healing process and make sure that you allow time to grieve.

Automatic Pet Feeders

AUTOFEEDYou may have seen automatic pet feeders in the store and wondered why anyone would want one. There are several good reasons for owning one.

Cats associate their owners with food and this association could be very annoying because cats demand food anytime when hungry or not so hungry. This can be really be a problem to some owners who don’t want to be woken up at 4:00 am because their cat is meowing and wants to be fed.

Automatic feeders allow you to feed your pet without you being present and this means a lot when you’re away. Another good reason for choosing an automatic pet feeder is that some cats eat all their food at once. If you’re away at work, the automatic pet feeder will dispense food in small portions throughout the day. Of course, if you feed your can strictly wet cat food, this device will not be practical.
