There comes a time when our children are suddenly that little bit older and things that didn't make sense to them, do now make sense.
Last March we lost our cat Millie. Zach would have been two and a half and whilst he was fully aware that she was no longer with us, he didn't really understand where she had gone. Just that she hadn't been very well and that she was no longer around. He has mentioned her a few times since she went but didn't mention anything about actual death.
