It has almost been two months since Gregy's death, I still grieve for him and I miss him so much. Ive been thinking about getting a kitten but I have mixed feelings about it. . .

Sorry you are missing your Gregy so much. 

I had mixed feelings about getting another too.  I think that is totally normal.  What I can tell you about my experience:
I was afraid that it was too early and I would never be ready- It was too early and I would never have done it had I waited "until I was ready" because I don't think I ever would have been.
I felt like I was "replacing" Foster- but I found out that after I brought my TWO new friends home, that I could never replace Foster.
Foster helped me get through a lot in our time together and then suddenly there was no one there on a daily basis to help me get through the loss of him.  Yes, I have my hubby, but he can only do so much. 
Adopting Monty and Lila was helpful to me, I found joy again and I have two trusting souls to take care of.

I would never have thought that I would ever have another in  my life, but there are so many out there that need homes and love.  It was one of the best decisions that I made.

Getting these two helped me to see the young Foster again.  They helped me to laugh and even to remember Foster.

You won't replace Gregy.  Only Gregy is Gregy.  You won't forget him either.

Thanks. I just feel like I need something to love and love me back. . . I miss  Gregy so much. I know that a kitten will bring me joy again but what about the pain of it running away or getting killed. . . Im not sure if I will be ready to take on pain like that after I have lost Gregy. I know that I have to take a chance and hope that the new little one i get will love me enough to stay

Never feel afraid to get another pet when you are ready. They won't bring back the pet you lost but they can add so much joy and that special bond one shares that is missing after the death of your last pet.

In the five years since Zephyr's death and the two years after Odin's Cadence and Noah have filled that huge void in our lives, as only a new pets can.

It doesn't matter how much time may pass between the loss and the arrival of a new pet. 3 months, 3 weeks or 6 months when your ready your heart will tell you.
