Making Sense Of It By Alice (aged 5)

Explaining to the children why Billy Cat was no longer with us. Billy was black and white. Alice, aged 5, sat quiet for a while.

"Every time I look in the sky and see a cloud with a little bit of black in it I shall know that that's the cloud Billy is on".

I think I shall do the same too.

That's such a sweet thought and such a great way for her to deal with her loss.

Hugs to both.

Thank you folks - pets become such a part of your life don't they?
