When I answer questions of a personal nature, readers often get in touch with their own thoughts. So, we now have a weekly feature, Team Oracle, whereby each Friday (with the question asker's permission) we open up a question to all of you to answer too. Then, the following Friday, I'll post a selection of the best answers, alongside my own reply.
ANYONE can join in so, if you'd like to, please email your response to the following question, in no more than 250 words, to before Thursday 1st December.

A few days ago I heard that my cat would't make it 'til Christmas because of her critical illness (she doesn't suffer right now by the way). That's horrible to hear and I already miss her!
I hate losing pets, I find it so hard to accept that you can never hug them again when they're gone.
Do you, or the band ever lose a pet? And what did you do to ease your pain?
Regards, Rens. Netherlands.

Look forward to seeing your replies.
The Oracle
