Marinda, each of us has to decide when we are ready for a new kitty.  I've never had just one kitty and have found great comfort from the others when one has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.    Check with your local shelter and rescue groups.  Saving a kitty would be a wonderful tribute to ginger

I think Ginger would be very proud of you for saving the life of another kitty. We don't replace loved ones that have passed with new ones, the new ones are added to our hearts. I have lost many FeLV+ kitties over the 7 years I have been caring for them and I hold them all dear to me

Thank you for your post, Natalie. I will never understand why so many people feel guilty about adopting another cat when they lose one. It is not a betrayal it's a tribute to the cat who died to honor it's death by helping another cat. Your words were perfect. Lorrie On 03-11, GRAS wrote:

Plastic rubbermaid totes will help too. If you cut a hole toward the end on one of the long sides and leave the lid on top, you can stuff it with a little hay or pine needles (no cloth please, it holds water). Cutting the hole this way lets them get further out of the weather and feels

Yes, getting another kitty is not betrayal at all as others have said. I do rescue and some pass unfortunatly; when I rescue another I'm doing it in the name of the one that died. Many rescues that died are a lesson, either diseases, people, etc but I feel the kitty died in vain if I don't save
