I recently lost a cat who I had for around 10 years. I still feel sad about it and it's almost been a month. It was the same when I lost my dog and people keep telling me I shouldn't be upset over it because it was just a pet and 8 can just get a new one... To me that feels like I'd be replacing my owe family members... Am I just too attached to my pets?

I think it's normal. I love animals and I understand you. For me an animal is like a member of my family too. I really get attached. You've had it for so long, nothing unusual that you're so sad about his death. I am really sorry.0

It is completely okay to lose a pet and be sad/depressed about it for a long time. I was sad about my pet dying for weeks, still sad about it sometimes. Pets are family, no matter what.1
