Hi I just asked this in the thread I wrote last month

Last month, the best pet I ever had died. Stewie was this most wonderful social and interactive cat and we just all loved him so much and seriously grieved at his death. Many of you wrote very loving condolences and we so appreciated that. My dilemma. My teenage daughter misses having a pet and she would like for us to get another kitten soon. I don't know if I am ready for that but yet, I don't want to deprive her of that companionship and for her to have a creature that needs her care along with the rest of us. The problem is that I had never grieved so over a per such as Stewie. He was so unique and special. How long does one normally wait after a sorrowful pet death before adding another fury member to the family? Thanks for your advise! Mike
