I know this is different for everybody, but I just wanted to know when/if you knew you were ready for another pet after one had passed away? It's been only a month since I had my ^Lizzie^ cat put to sleep, and just recently a part of me is feeling very strongly about wanting/needing another kitty. Part of me is guilty about thinking about this so soon after ^Lizzie^ left me, but another part is just aching with loneliness and wanting a warm little body to snuggle and love. I even visited the shelter yesterday and held a little black kitty who gave me hugs the whole I held her! She put a paw on either shoulder and nuzzled her head under my chin. I just fell in love, but I didn't commit to anything because I was by myself and hadn't brought DH or the stepkids in to meet her .
But another concern is DH said he would like to be pet-free for a little while. He really didn't specify a time period, but I know it would be too soon right now to talk about getting another cat. I think I can wait maybe another month or so and maybe I can bring up the topic then.
