Not very well. The cossard is still very baby, he likes paying and often annoys his sister who is calm but very proud and does not understand jokes. They are both nice and soft as teddy bears, certainly like yours
Well...sadly, Joscoe passed away last November (the day after Thanksgiving) and it hit me really hard.
I adopted Piper (my current cat) from a shelter about a month after that. I wasn't too sure about getting another cat so soon. I didn't want to feel like I was buying a "replacement cat" for Jos.
Well, Pi certainly is no Joscoe and, to be honest, that's a thing. Don't get me wrong, I'll always love Joscoe, but Pi is completely different personality wise and was a couple years old already when I got her. I had Jos since she was a kitten. So it goes to reason that Pi was being put in a completely unfamiliar situation (though I don't think she minds it).
I think the thing that made me realize I was doing the right thing when Pi dragged something out in the living room and it was one of Joscoe's old toys that had long gotten lost. She immediately dropped it in front of me, basically telling me that she wanted to play. That right there almost made me cry (I'll admit it...I teared up a little).
I'm sorry to hear that Joscoe passed away. It's always really hard to say goodbye to a family member. I already buried four of my dogs. I know how tough it is. And I know what you mean when you say you didn't want to feel like "buying a replacement cat". Of course it is not and it never will be, I understand that you could feel quilty because it might seem like that. But the truth is, you like cats and the company they give. No one can ever replace Joscoe. She will forever stay in your heart. She's your old friend. But now you made a new friend, Piper. Who is just as unique as Joscoe. You create a unique and special bond with every pet. You love them all. Beautiful to hear how she brought the toy to you. What a wonderful moment you can treasure forever. And I can totally understand that would make you cry. It would make me cry. I wish you all the best and a beautiful life with Piper. And a special place in your heart for Joscoe.
