I also agree with other it would be fair for the kitten to wait awhile longer. The kitten will have it own unique personality and if you are grieving your lost cat you may wish your kitten was more like your cat. I would give yourself more time so when you get a new kitten you'll be able to love it for his or her personality. I wish I waited a liitle longer as when I got Marty, I kept thinking he nothing like my last dog and of course that was not fair for
Marty. Now I love Marty for who he is .
