is it normal for one cat to become really clingy and needy after the death of another cat or pet? because ever since Dylan passed Pudding has become way more clingy than she used to be. Dylan was always my needier and more vocal kitty, he was the friendly and cuddly one and Pudding has always been distant and aloof, never a cuddler and pretty quiet. but now she is way more vocal than she has ever been, she's affectionate and cuddly which she has NEVER been in the sevenish years that i've had her and she's clingy. my mom thinks that she's lonely now and needs another friend but i'm not ready for another cat yet. Dylan was like one in a million and when i adopted him i was going through a rough time and he seemed to like instinctively know what i needed and how to help and i don't know if i'll ever be able to find another kitty like him again.
