As eldercat said, "Sonny will mourn". This is especially true if Sonny and Cher were good buddies and had a close bond. Yes, cats do show depression and less interest in things, may wander thro a house meowing for their friend, sitting in its favorite places. It really depends on the bond the two had, and since it seems they had a close bond it will take longer to get over the loss of his buddy. I do recall a female cat of mine that was bullied by her half-brother. He was extremely jealous of any attention I paid to her and would attack her, so I had to give her attention quietly behind a closed door. When the bully died, it was like she got a second life. She was absolutely ecstatic that he was gone, and became a sweet purring lap cat, which she never was before. Sometimes it's best to let a few months pass, and then get another cat.....likely another female kitten would be suitable rather than a male. Let the kitten choose you, rather than you choosing a kitten because of color or coat length or some other reason. All the best!
