pet sympathy gifts

We make a pet mementos goods by knitting.

So, we often take pet loss customer consultation, however I’m not a counselor.

Today I introduce one case.

If someone in the family is pet loss, how should we do to support?

Especially it seems that customer’s mother often becomes a pet loss.

Mother becomes a pet loss.

Sometimes, someone in the family become deep pet loss.

If you’re mother was deep pet loss, we are very troubled.

veterinary doctor says

“Elderly people and women are more prone to pet loss.”

This may be due to menopause and lifestyle changes.

It’s hard for the whole family, but let’s understand that the mother herself is the hardest.

can’t do housework

In Japan, mothers often do housework.

If my mother is unable to do housework, someone else will do it.

if it is the short term, it may be less of a burden.

But it may need a days or over months to overcome the pain of pet loss.


If symptoms persist, let’s consider causes other than pet loss

Other than pet loss, have there been any changes in your home environment?

Work stress, child independence, death of family members, etc.

It seems that there are cases where the death of a pet overlaps with them and becomes mentally unstable.

If you are a woman (even a man), it seems that menopause disorder may overlap.

Why don’t you consult a doctor?

I think it’s important to be close to your mother’s heart.

Mother herself must want to get well.

Please talk with your mom about pet.

Or let’s eat a cake on pet’s birthday and decorate flowers on pet’s anniversary.

Also, please talk about pet

“Our pet is doing well in heaven”.

If you can share mother’s loneliness, she may be think it will be healed.
