Louie is so lonely

Whether a cat dies, is lost or stolen, or must be placed in a new home, this is the place to gather together to give and receive love and support when you experience the loss of a beloved cat.

My cat Louie is so lonely since his brother Henry died. He talks all the time, is on my lap all evening, and looks so sad when I leave for work in the morning. My other cat Howie would rather wrestle than cuddle. I can't adopt another fur baby--I am technically only supposed to have 2 in my apartment anyway and Howie would never stand an invader (I brought in a stray baby once and he was livid).

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Lots of TLC! It will take awhile and you want to make sure he's eating okay and not getting too depressed because they can become ill from losing a companion. Some people don't think animals grieve but they do and it will take time just like it does for us. Try to play with him a little more, engage him in activities to get his mind occupied. Kiss and hug him as much as you can to let him know you're there for him. hug
