You are definitely among people here who when they say they are sorry for your loss, they truly mean it. We know how awful it is, and how hard it can be to get over such a loss. You never really do, but you do learn to cope eventually. I'm not sure if you have another cat, and I'm not suggesting you replace Gino, but you would be surprised how much having another pet around can help heal your heart. Even fostering. I have not fostered a cat, but I have dogs, after my springer spaniel died, and it was an amazing thing for me, and helped my heart cope with his loss.
Feel free to talk about Gino here, post pictures, we will listen and help you however we can.
