Thanks everybody, you are all so kind on here.
I won't rush into anything at all. I found a P.A.W.S place in a few towns over. I think I'm going to go visit there this weekend. I doubt I will bring home a cat. I will probably wait a few months before I get another one.
However, the shelter said it really needed volunteers just for a few hours on the weekends. I'm thinking maybe I will do something like that. That way I can give my love to the little kitties and cats, but I don't have to make a commitment just yet.
Thanks for all your thoughts. I really miss Jazzy... but I guess the one thing that helps with all of this, is knowing how sick she was the night I put her down. She was really sick. Her ears were so very yellow, and so were her eyes and her mouth. It seemed the last week she just progressed in her disease
Her being sick is harder to accept than her dying I think. Looking back, I almost wish I didn't have the feeding tube inserted, etc... but I didn't know. I think that whole tube thing was just too stressful for her. If it were to happen again, I would probably opt not for the surgery, and just bring the cat home and let them die gracefully until it was time. It's funny how you learn huh, through experience.
Thanks for your thoughts. I can't wait to get another cat. I never knew I had so much love to give to an animal, and I guess Jazzy taught me that
Bless my little Jazzo.
