First let me thank everyone who has commented or emailed to express sympathy over the death of my cat, Amelia. Believe me, I appreciate it. Secondly, some of you have asked about how my other cat, Bruce, is doing. So far he doesn't seem to be overly affected by Amelia's absence. He is aware that she isn't there. In the mornings he keeps looking down the hallway to see if she's coming out of the bedroom. But his behavior hasn't altered much that I can tell. I am giving him a lot of extra attention, especially when I get home from work. Fortunately Bruce and Amelia weren't inseparable pals as some sets of cats are. They played together some, but often on weekends when I was home to observe them all day, they barely interacted. So I'm hoping it won't be too lonely for him. Some folks have asked if I plan to get another cat and at the moment that depends on Bruce. If he seems okay as a solo kitty then I may wait a while. Time will tell.
