My thoughts are with you. I know how devastating this is. We have lost 3 of our cats. One of them was with me during my "single days" and saw me through some difficult times, so my partner had to be there during her final hours. I just couldn't stay. I was a mess.
Now we always have 2 cats, no matter what, so when we find that an older cat is declining we adopt a kitten, knowing that it will always keep the other cat company and lessen the blow for us as well.
We recently put Sasha to sleep so we adopted Toby, an 8 month-old from a shelter. He keeps Milo, who is 11 years-old, active. Milo is our "heart" (in my avatar), but we see him slowing down as well. When the time comes, we will look for another kitten. We've just found this the best way of moving past the grief.
Our boy, Toby
Milo, Sasha and Misha, we miss you!
