Quote from: Bachtoven on September 17, 2023, 05:25:15 PMSince we adopted two females, we wanted two famous female names--my wife thought of Lucy and Ethel from the "I Love Lucy" show. Until about 2 days ago, Ethel has been grieving in her own way. She constantly walked around the house for over a week looking for Lucy, sometimes making an odd huffing/coughing sound, then she'd vomit. We took her to the vet a few days ago and everything seemed to be fine. The vet said it was most likely extreme stress since litter mates bond so closely. As if my own grief weren't bad enough (and hasn't diminished one iota yet), it was doubly heartbreaking to watch her. She quit doing both disturbing activities by Thursday night.
Quote from: Bachtoven on September 18, 2023, 06:53:07 AMThank you. We've talked about it, but I don't think Ethel would tolerate a new kitty. A neighbor found a litter of kittens a few years ago, so we "borrowed" one to see how our cats would react: not well! Both hissed like crazy and raised a paw to swat it, but they didn't follow through.
