DO YOU AGREE WITH ME?
Our little girl (14 years old), Jynx, has not appeared to notice that her friend, Cynder, is gone. We were nervous that since they have always behaved as mother and child, that Jynx would have a tough time once Cynder was gone. The only thing we've noticed is that.....
.....now Jynx sleeps on this chair. She has never slept on this chair, until Cynder spent her last night here. On her last evening with us, Cynder curled up, exactly where Jynx is, and slept here the entire night. Now, every evening, Jynx lays down in this spot, and spends her evening napping here.
Some may say we are anthropomorphising (attributing of human motivation, characteristics, or behavior to animals) this, but I have heard too many other similar stories, where animals will mourn the passing of a friend, (lying on a grave, sitting on a memorial etc...) to not think this is Jynx's way of mourning Cynder's passing.
I think it makes her feel better in her time of ajusting to a new normal.
