The mind doubts, but the heart never does.

well I'm not sure , my heart needs to mend,  we had the cat before the Dogs , but if we got a cat now I'm not sure how they would react ? they do chase most things!!  Wink
I'm sure they'd accept a newcomer.  I have a friend who has a bit of a menagerie and there's always a new waif or stray welcomed into the fold and they all just get on with it.  It's understandable that you're needing a wee bit of time, though.  hug

I know i am only delaying the inevitable but I'm not ready to say goodbye.As long as he still talks to me and gives me headbutts I will wait and he is not in any pain at all.

Awww.....I'm so sorry Deb! My cat 'Tootsie' went to sleep when she was 18 as well, but she came back to visit several times and was seen 'and heard' by several people including  someone who never even knew we'd had a cat! The last time was several years later, on the day her companion 'Caesar', our German Shepherd dog died. We think she came back to meet him and we haven't heard from either of them since!  Wink

I read a book a few years back called The Dog Who Rescues Cats;  it's a true story written by Philip Gonzales.  I'm not sure if it has been mentioned on this site before but it is a heart warming story well worth reading.  Animals can teach us so much - if we take the time to listen.

We have always had dogs or cats. At the moment I have three cats one a rescued female tortie and a seal point Siamese and a new kitten a chocolate point Siamese both males. I think having pets teaches children to be kind and my two children love our animals. Cats are special and especially my Siamese's they seem to know when you are feeling down and will come and sit on your lap and purr away. I think animals can sense things as well. My old Siamese who died (Jerry) who died a few months ago was more loving as if he knew it was near his time. I loved him very much we had him as a kitten and he was nothing like the elegant cat he was supposed to be he would thump up and down the stairs like an elephant. He was a wise old boy and we all miss him a lot sometimes I feel he is still with us. He is buried in the garden under my Buddha.

In my  .experience new kittens get adopted by resident dogs,as long as you keep to their usual walking routine leaving the cat behind When we had 2 labs and 3 cats we all walked out together Humans in the lead then the cats and finally the dogs Now I'm down to just one dog and no cats
  These feelings that your dead animals return are part of the grieving process a psychiatrist friend once told me and is the reason why years ago, when someone died at home,the mourners used to open the windows to let the deceased's soul escape to Heaven
