We had to put our family pet down, We've had him for 13years. Ever since I was in elementary school. I know some will say, "He is just a pet" but it still hurts. Having him there everyday, to just nothing. It breaks my heart, it's been a week, and I already notice myself being isolate, not wanting to do anything, go anywhere, or be myself. Honestly I miss my Cat, Smokey more than anything. Growing up, he was always there for me, when No one else was. This is really hard for me.
