George is 11, orange tabby, he lost his companion, 10 year old Gracie about a year ago.We waited awhile and he seemed to progress through the grief since we moved and he was no longer smelling her. We moved a long distance so that was an upheaval but he did great. He had started to cry loudly anywhere from 4 to 8 am and it was a loud persistent cry that he wanted interaction. Gracie was gone so he couldn't talk her into grooming or playing, so he opted to try to get me out of bed.Thru the day he was great. He'd play like a kitten with his bouncy mouse and bird attached to elastic string and hanging from the door jamb. He would jump to tackel them and had a blast. We finally got 2 ten week old female kittens. We kept them separate for a week and did the gradual introduction, scent swapping. when I let them out to be with George, they all did well. There was little hissing and figuring out whose dishes were whose but George is so passive and gentlemanly that he backs away and watches the kittens. they have all grown to where they eat, sleep and groom together now. the kittens are still playful but George is very docile now. He moves slowly though he is still climbing 2 flights of stairs but he doesn't get the rips anymore. HE moves slowly
