Cat "on trial".... I'm sad

Hi,

I've been having a hard time since my cat Sebastian died last week... he was so part of the family and I miss him terribly. I'm sure you all know the feeling. Anyway, I got in contact with a rescue organization, and today took home a cat on a trial basis. (Want to make sure he does ok with my son.) He's very sweet, very patient with DS... and he's not Sebastian. Which, of course, is not the poor cat's fault! I just keep comparing him, and I don't want to. Sebastian was the smartest cat I ever had. Pippin is sweet and dumb. Aren't I terrible?!?! I should be thrilled with we found a nice gentle cat who's tolerant of young children. And he's good with other cats and with dogs, for when we expand our animal family. Let's you cut his nails and bathe him without a fuss. Purrs when you hold him. He's a dolly. So why am I so upset?!

Thanks to any of you who've made it through this rambling diatribe. Maybe it was too soon to adopt another? I just can't stop thinking of Sebastian and crying.

Give him a chance,no one will ever replace but so many need a good home and you can feel proud for doing that

Sebastian would want you to open your arms and heart.... I know it took me a long time...and still...I'm not sure about my feeling for Spark...but he needs me and loves me....
