They say time heals all, but it feels like an eternity. We didn't get another cat to replace the two we lost and our third one was the only one for about 5 years. We finally Got Jack about a year ago. He was 8 months old and a real joy in our hearts. Nutmeg on the other hand was not so joyous. She was 15 years old then and really set in her ways. She has finally been able to come to grips with Jack. some times literally. LOL She now accepts he is not leaving. She's an old lady and wont put up with his playfulness very long. But she's doing better. She knows she is the queen and her mommy and daddy will always take up for her.
There are times when I wonder if getting Jack was the right thing to do. And the rest of the time I know it was. We knew Nutmeg would not be here much longer and my wife didn't want to be alone with out having a fir child to snuggle on her lap. Now neither one of us knows what we did with out them.
When an animal looses a friend or mate that they have been around that long they most definitely feel the loss. And they don't understand what has happened. Love them and reassure them every day that they are still with you and you also feel the loss. the comfort you give to each other comes back 10000 fold.
