Hi I am so sorry to hear of your loss, it is never easy when we lose a close friend.

My advice would be to give your self some time to grieve for your friend, this is healthy and a good way for you to move and be in a better frame of mind to look after a new cat looking for a home.

After a few weeks or a month, if you feel you would still like to give another cat a home, take your time and find your next feline companion. You will be amazed how a new feline friend can bring joy to your heart again. And they are all so different they never replace another cat just enhance your life with their own special character.

I do think it is import to spend some time first though before you re home another cat.

I don't know if you have seen my web pages here about cat loss etc, they may help you through this time. here is the first page

best wishes Kate
