Pet Eulogies

Below you’ll find our tributes to pets, a column begun by the the moving memoir sent in by Margaret Cox and Al Schepps, members of the Center-Sinai Animal Hospital family. Those of us who have gone through the experience of losing one or more of our pets know that we feel very strongly that we have lost a family member. And regardless of the fact that all living beings do pass away, it hurts.

All research points to the fact that getting the story out helps the grieving process, so we are very glad to have the wonderful hailing of pussycat Earl Grey’s spirit in the piece below.

We hope you find some comfort here, if you have lost a pet. And, please, if you have a story you’d like to share, click the button below and send it in. We’re posting visitor stories and photos, and would be pleased to add yours. Share your eulogy
