I do not know if any of you have read my other post about the health of my cat sterling, but anyway he is gone now, I think I did eveything I could for him, i know I did! It feels so empty around my house, and I can't stop thinking about him. It is really even very hard to write this, But my question is, Have any of you gotten a kitty right away. I really want to. But feel bad if I do, out of respect for my cat, for some reason. I don't know. i do believe If I can save another kitty, I have done a good thing, Nothing will ever replace him. But maybe make me feel better, it is really amazing how he affected me. he was 9 years old. and got treated like a king until the end. do you think it is too soon? he is the most missed cat in the world.
thank you for listining

I am sorry for your loss. I know how much it hurts and how empty a hole it leaves. To get another cat is a personal decision that only you can make when you feel the time is right. There is some really good resources online to deal with the loss of a cat or kitten. Memorial pages where you can leave a piece of Sterling behind in a loving tribute. There is a forum that deals with this here on TheCatsite called Crossing the Bridge.....

I am so sorry for your loss. You can never replace Sterling, you could offer a loving home to a homeless kitty that desperately needs a one. It would not be disrespectful, but a loving gesture to fill a void. I recently lost my special baby, Leo, to feline leukemia, and if I didn't have 3 others, I would need to fill that empty space. I got Leo right away after I lost another kitty. Not only for myself, but my old fellow Fred, had lost his companion and was very lonely. Leo made both of us feel better. I just happened across him, abandoned in a parking lot and took him home. I was considering another kitty, and there he was, in need of a home. Please don't feel guilty or disrespectful for needing something to fill an empty space.
