I posted on here about a month ago about losing my sweet baby T’Challa. I thought I was healing and getting better, and my husband and I both felt like the house was so empty so we wanted to look into getting another pet. We realized we couldn’t afford a dog, so getting a cat was perfect.

We found a bonded pair who are so cute and we thought they were perfect to get and open our hearts again! We were supposed to go this Saturday to meet them, but instead I got a call this morning saying they had open times today. I agreed thinking I was ready, but I was wrong. It was stressful and hard enough going by myself, as my husband isn’t home for a few days, but I never thought that it would be as emotionally hard as it has been on me. I’m just wondering if I didn’t wait long enough.

I feel like I didn’t wait long enough and I feel like I wasn’t ready to get another cat, and now I feel so guilty for thinking that. It’s unfair to the cats we got. And they are so different from T’Challa, which is a good and bad thing. They’re very sweet, but they are older, bigger, and super timid and shy. I just still miss him so much and I didn’t realize it would be this hard. Obviously I know that once these cats warm up to my husband and I it’ll be better, but I just don’t know what to do or how to cope.

This hurts so so much and I feel so terrible that I adopted these cats and paid so much for them to feel this bad and guilty. Does anyone have any advice on how to get through this and what to do? I’m breaking inside.
