One of our beloved cats has cancer and the vet said he has maybe 2-6 months to live. Our 2.5 year old toddler knows the cat has been "sick." he has seen the big stitches from when they cut open his abdomen to get biopsies of his intestines. Now we do not want our son to think that anytime someone gets sick... they die. We are not even sure he will be able to understand what it means to die. We are not religious, but have no problem explaining that our cat will go to heaven. Any advice? books to suggest? what would you say?
