Ever since I was a child, my family has always had lots of dogs. Whenever one died, we waited months before buying a new one. And when my childhood dog died, I waited 2 years before getting another animal for myself. However, so many of my family friends replace their deceased pets straight away. A family friend had a new black poodle puppy after her aging one died in less than a month. And a roomate tragically lost her cat and had a kitten in under a week and another cat in less than a month. All of these pets had been by their owners side for years. I can't fathom replacing a loved pet that quickly, so what do other people do?

Hmm I've never really replaced any of my animals. When my first cat died I was incredibly sad and would hang outside a lot. After a while a really nice stray came up to me and I fell in love and kept him. It's strange really. That's happened after two of my cats dying, a nice one would just pop up and I'd keep them. Does that count? I never actively tried to replace one.2
