*shrugs* There's all kinds of people out there. Including people that really want a companion animal and will go out and get one as soon as they've lost their last one. And that's an animal they deeply loved. This woman likely was not very bonded to her cat - as I said before, she could have even done this so the animal could find a more suitable home (meowing can be annoying to people but as also noted many people really like it so she may think it would find another home easily), so to her getting another animal right away could be a matter of not wanting to dwell on what happened. A younger dog is not the same a cat constantly meowing, a younger dog may come with its own problems, but if she picks carefully she may find an a dog she really can bond with.
I actually give her credit in that regard for wanting a dog that's even a few years old. So many people only want a puppy they can shape from the very start; in fact my family is all like that, every dog we've ever had we've had as a puppy.
