I would get a kitten too. I should have done that when Tigger lost his buddy Cinnamon about 4 years ago. Tigger was the most friendly cat I've ever had. He loved everybody. He used to groom Cinnamon every night while Cinnamon never returned the favor. My daughter moved in and you would have thought her and Tiggs were siamese twins. He wouldn't leave my daughter's side at all. After Cinnamon got sick and I had him euthanized, Tigger lost some weight. When my daughter moved out shortly after that is when Tigger got real lonely.
