Helen BS: Loss of a pet (54* d) RE: BS: Loss of a pet 29 Dec 19

Our household feline population has been reduced by 50% in the last 18 months. We now ONLY have three cats left. The great aunt, the grandmother and the mother of the youngest two were sent over the rainbow bridge in June 2018, April and July 2019 respectively. The grandmother was 16 years old and the most gentle soul - feline or human - I have ever met. The uncle of the youngest two is now 15 and the youngest two are 14 so we appreciate the time we have with them.

It's not the same without them around the house.

I have done the maths and at our age if we got another kitten and they lived as long as the others we would be in our early 80's and I don't think we would be fit enough to look after them, but I have thought of the possibility of adopting an older cat whose previous owner may be gone. That might work. Most older cats are not attractive enough as an adoption prospect compared with cute little kittens.
