I know what you mean about getting used to them dying. I suppose I am used to certain types of cat dying..... Like Gallagher. All his siblings went before him (one was euthanised, the other 2 found like he was). I am not really bothered about what happens to their bodies after they die. That sounds harsh maybe, but once you are dead, you are just a body, if you know what I mean? The funeral rites etc are for the living, to help us grieve. I rescue ex-battery hens too, and they usually just drop dead. Not many live over 3 years of age. When I find a dead one now I feed her to the cats..... Some will be shocked by that I know, but it makes more sense than feeding her to the worms (by burying her) and buying another tortured chicken for the cats..... The hens all have names and I adore them, I just know they will die young. As will the inbred cats with heart problems. You just harden up I suppose, and accept it. Otherwise you would go mad. As long as I can honestly claim that I improved their situation and gave them a happy life while they were with me, I can cope.

Hi sorry for your loss , I have read your story
And trust me , it wasn’t your flaunt , often
We live a busy life , where everything goes
Wrong , a chain of events , that sadly ended
Badly sadly we cannot see the future , if
We could , we would be fair warded
But often we do blame ourselves for
Something out of our control , as I did when
I lost my Bertie from a freak washing machine
Accidentally trapping his tail and back end
In the door causing spine and bladder damage
So yes I have been there
Love and hugs to everyone v
