In Western world, pets are increasingly significant in the everyday life of many people. Nevertheless, society today is still unable to recognize the suffering resulting from their death. This phenomenon and the most important studies on pet-loss are described. Some assumptions on ontological representations of death, which might contribute to explain the delegitimization of pet-grief, are discussed.
Keywords: Human-animal relationship; Mourning the loss of a pet; Ontological representation of death; Stereotypes; Antispecism
