Fur the Broken Hearted

This book is for anyone who understands the immense love and joy a companion animal can bring but who may also be currently crippled by the devastating thought of beginning end of life discussions and processes. 

For anyone struggling to decide if the time to offer the ultimate gift of peace (euthanasia) to your fur baby is now or impending, this book may assist you in preparing the best way possible. 

You may never be 100% sure of your decision and that’s okay, but planning is certainly the key for the best outcome for all.

True Compassion Nikki your book shows your true compassion and knowledge on how to help pet lovers make the best decision for their beloved pet and for the family who never want to say goodbye. The hardest part when deciding whether to euthanize our beautiful dog, coco , was helping our children to understand this decision. Having read your book you helped prepare my husband and I for this difficult conversation.Thank you 🙏

Thoughtfully written book on a heart breaking subject Fur the Broken Hearted is a must-read book for anyone struggling to make the decision about saying goodbye to their fur baby. The author truly understands the depth of the bond between humans and pets and the result is a beautifully written book that speaks to the heart of anyone in this awful situation. It reminds us that between being chosen by our pet, til the very end, there is so much love. It shows us that being able to draw on that love helps to guide us in our decision-making for end-of-life care. That last step is so hard, buying this book is easy and helps us to make informed decisions when we need to.

A beautiful and compassionate guide to help deal with grief This is a really special book. It is raw and real. I thought I was alone with my emotions regarding my fur babies, but after reading this book I can see that I am not. I encourageanyone who loves their pet to invest in this book, as unfortunately we will all experience heartache and pain at some stage of our pets life, and this book can provide some comfort. Nikki, you have done an amazing job with this book!

Brilliant, practical guide This is a sensitively written, compassionate book for anyone who is facing or has experienced the loss of a treasured pet. Often overlooked or dismissed feelings around this life event can make navigating a difficult time really isolating. Reading this book is like sitting down with a warm friend who understands, and can genuinely help. Would also make a beautiful gift for someone you want to help and support. Highly recommended.

Thoughtful questions and prompts to help you towards your healing path. This is a beautiful gift for anyone who has lost a pet such as a cat, dog, bird, horse, hamster, rabbit, etc. The journal is perfect. It contains 100 pages, some are college lined and others are blank.

This tool is designed to support you through the challenges of pet loss and prompt you towards your healing path. Sometimes you need a safe place to put all this emotion and pain. There is an option to write a message to your loved one, take this opportunity to thank them for all they have been to you. If you need to apologise for anything at all, this is the place to do so.

"Nikki helped our family understand grief"
Nikki has been wonderful in helping our family understand grief after losing our beloved cat Oscar.

As a mum I felt I had to “make everything better” for the kids but I didn’t know what was beneficial to say all the time. Nikki made the kids feel more settled about their feelings and we will remember the advise she gave us. Thank you Nikki you have a heart of gold 💛

"There for us in our time of need"
Nikki is such an incredible and compassionate human being. She was there for us in our time of need when we didn’t know if we were making the right decisions and helped us to be at peace with the ones we did make.

She understands that pets are family and how truly devastating their loss can be. She has helped us through a truly difficult time and we will be forever grateful for that.

"I wouldn't hesitate recommending Nikki"
I cannot speak more highly of Nikki - she is an absolutely amazing person to talk through during a rough time. I have not had to go through the grieving process of losing a pet recently but she's been wonderful to chat to during tough times too. Wouldn't hesitate to keep referring my clients to her during their bereavement period xx

"Nikki's gentle nature and beautiful soul"
Nikki has helped me make the hardest decisions of my life in having to say goodbye to my furbabies on several occasions.

With Nikki's gentle nature, beautiful soul and heart of gold she truly understands the deep love and connection we feel for and share with our animals. I highly recommend Nikki at Paws For Talk if you are at any stage in the process of needing to say goodbye to your beloved family member.

Prior to, the day of, days or even months later, there is no time limit on grief. Nikki's caring ear and advice can make the process a little less confronting for all members of the family.
