Know I am really but I just want to vent. In the last year I have lost 3 close family members. At the moment I am seeing so many facebook post along the lines of devasted by the loss of Jess the cat etc etc. This is followed by 20 or so posts sending deepest condoloences. One such post which really riled me was one from someone who was once a close friend. Did she really think I would offer condolences on the loss of her cat when she barely acknowledges my 3 losses.

My daughter died, I was still sad when the rabbit died.

perhaps she didnt know what to say? perhaps it is easier when it is a pet.

Oh God that came out wrong. What I am saying is pets are to some people a big part of their family and obviously while it is heartbreaking what has happened to you other people are still allowed to be sad about less important things.
If I were you I would have a rest from FB for a while or hide the people who annoy you.

I know people do get attached to their pets. I don't deny that. I have lost pets myself and have been upset. However, I just don't feel it is the same pain as losing a close relative /relatives. Suppose the crux of this is that I didn't feel supported by this person who I was once close too. Think a defriend may be in order.
