I'm glad you are looking forward not backward. You will find the perfect little guy. Thanks for being so caring and adopting! I adopt old cats and know the heartbreak of losing one all too soon, too. I am convinced the joy of adopting and saving a life far outweighs the heartbreak of losing them. We lost our Winnie - a 15 year old Maine Coon that we adopted last May. I cried like a baby when we saw her in the Petsmart cage - 15, ratty looking, scared and confused, and cried like a baby when we lost her on Thursday. Didn't have her long, but she was sweet and saving her life was worth it, no matter how little time we had. The city shelter - a kill shelter here, supplies the cats to Petsmart.
We are going to visit a cat today I found on PetFinder called Minnie - query the name. She is in a shelter called Heritage something or other. She is 8 years old. No one wants the old babies, but I do. I give them loving, forever homes after they've been senselessly thrown away. Good luck with your search, and thanks again for saving a life.
