Adding a New Pet After The Passing of Another

Saturday, September 25, 2021
posted by Jim Murphy

Our cat Atlantis recently passed away leaving our cat Millie who’s now 16. We’ve been asked whether or not we’re going to get another cat or dog. We’ve even been asked to adopt an adorable kitten. After losing a pet, there’s a grieving process and I truly believe when it’s the right time to give a beloved pet a good home, we’ll know it. Something else to consider is our cat Millie. At this point in her life, we would be reluctant to introduce a new pet because it would definitely upset her and she would have to make some major adjustments in her senior years. So we are delaying our pet adoption efforts for now. There will come a time when we will be ready to adopt another cat or dog but we will patiently wait for that time to come.

My advice to anyone who has lost a beloved pet. Give yourself some time, you’ll know when it’s time for you to give another pet a wonderful home!

Remember, pet are family!
