Do Cats Go To Heaven?

Unfortunately, none of us get to live forever on planet Earth, not even your pet cat. It is heartbreaking, but it is all part of the great circle of life.

In fact, most cats only live to the age of about 12 years, and that is if they are lucky. A lot of cats pass away at a younger age due to illness or accidents. So, what happens to them when their time is coming to an end?

Keep on reading to find out if your pet cat will go to heaven!

Are Cats Scared Of Dying?

We know that animals tend not to worry about dying at all, at least not in the way that humans do. Instead, they’d simply enjoy whatever time they had left.

Although we humans find it hard to accept this idea, it’s something that we should try to understand.

So, if your cat is dying, that does not mean that it is frightened. It does mean that your time together might be shortened, but it doesn’t mean that this time together is ruined.

You can still care for your cat, and make sure that their remaining time is as comfortable as can be.

Just keep petting them, feeding them, and caring for them as you usually do, and your cat will do just fine.

Losing Your Pet Cat

When we lose our beloved companion animals, it can be very difficult to come to terms with their death. We may feel sad for a few days, weeks, months, or even longer.

However, as time passes, we will eventually begin to carry on without constantly thinking about our lost friend and how we miss them.

When we have become accustomed to seeing our animal friends every day, it can be quite a shock to the system when they are no longer around, we miss them. It really is that simple.

Remembering Your Pet Cat

The loss of an animal friend can cause you to think back fondly over those moments spent together.

You might remember how he used to greet you in the morning; or how he would sit next to you while you were watching television; or how he would lie down beside you to sleep.

You might also recall all the fun times you had together, such as going out for walks, playing games, or just relaxing together.

It’s important to try to keep these memories alive by talking about them with other people who love and care about you. This way, you won’t forget your loved one so easily.

You built so many beautiful memories together, and it’s important to remember them fondly rather than dwelling too much on them not being here anymore.

Do Cats Go To Heaven?

If you are from a religious background, you may have heard of a place called Heaven. Heaven is where everyone goes after they die if they have lived a certain lifestyle on Earth. 

Cats And Religion

Most religions believe in some form of afterlife – a place where people go after they die. And although there are different ideas about what exactly lies beyond the grave, most agree that somewhere there is a better life than the one we currently experience.

For example, Christians believe that everyone gets into heaven. But, before they enter paradise, they must first be judged by Jesus Christ, who decides who enters heaven and who doesn’t based on their actions during their lifetime.

Muslims believe that Allah (God) will take good care of his faithful servants in Paradise, and that whether your cat is good enough to get into heaven depends entirely upon what kind of person s/he was.

Buddhists believe that people don’t actually die, but instead leave behind their bodies.

Other religions teach that people are reincarnated (usually in different bodies) until they learn all the lessons necessary to reach enlightenment. And once they have achieved spiritual perfection, they are reborn again.

There are lots of different beliefs surrounding death and the afterlife, but none of them really answer the question “do cats go to heaven?”

The truth is, no-one really knows for certain what lies beyond the veil. We know that animals cannot live forever in human society, but we don’t know what happens when they cross the boundary between our world and theirs.

Please don’t think that if your cat was a “bad” cat, that this means that they won’t be in heaven. It’s in a cat’s nature to hunt other animals, and they don’t always know the difference between right and wrong, especially when jealousy comes into matters.

This means that a regular, normal cat will have just as good a chance of getting into heaven as the most well-behaved cat in the world.

What About Reincarnation?

To many people, reincarnation is a more likely prospect than going to heaven, because there are so many contradictory opinions about what heaven might be like.

If both you and your pet cat are reincarnated, this may mean that you can be with them again. However, you won’t be in the same body and neither will your cat.

So this means that if the two of you were to meet again, after you have both passed away, then neither of you will look the same.

But although you may not recognize each other’s appearance, this does not mean there won’t be some other form of recognition that passes between you.

Is It OK To Believe I Will See My Pet Cat In Heaven?

It’s important that missing your pet cat doesn’t get in the way of you living your life here on Earth. And if this means that you want to believe that you will see your cat again in heaven, there’s literally no-one who can prove you wrong.

What To Do If You Start To Miss Your Cat Too Much

If you find yourself missing your pet more often than usual, this could mean that you need to talk to someone about your feelings.

It’s normal to feel upset after losing a close family member, but if you’re feeling particularly emotional, you should seek professional help.

If you do decide to speak to someone about your grief, make sure that you choose a qualified counselor or therapist who specializes in helping people deal with bereavement.

They’ll be able to help you work through any issues you may be having, and give you some advice on ways to cope with your loss.

Wrap Up

So, we don’t really know if cats go to heaven, but we do have guidance on what to do when we miss them. At the end of the day, nobody can prove that cats definitely go to heaven.

However, at the same time, nobody can prove that cats don’t go to heaven. So, you should believe whatever brings you comfort following the passing of your furry friend.
