Default My cat is grieving?

I absolutely adore cats. I had two, but at the beginning of this year I had to put one down because of heart/lung problems that he was too old and frail to handle. There's a whole rant I have about that, but that's for another time. Right now, I'm really worried about my cat that's alive. Her name is Strokers. When my other cat, Bogart, was sick and about to die, he hid under some clothes hanging low to the floor in my parent's closet. Just a few minutes ago I heard my cat mewling extremely loud, and when I went to look for her I found her only a few inches away from where Bogart had been. Was she mourning for him? She's been a lot more ... outspoken recently, meowing for no apparent reason, but this is the first time I've heard her do it without people around and near that spot...

I know it's stupid for me to be posting about how worried I am about my cat when people have worries about humans and issues like that- but I'm really freaking out and you guys are the only people I can think to actually give me some advice.
Thanks so much for reading!!!

I have seen animals grieve for other animals if they were close. I'm going to guess that Strokers and Bogart were together for some time, and your only pets? If so it is natural that Strokers is going to miss his buddy.
He will adjust in time, just be sure to give him extra attention and help him feel better...maybe you'll consider getting another cat too. I always reccomend going to the humane society and getting one from there.
Our Kitty came to us as a stray, and him and our Pekingeses dog are best of friends now. You might enjoy the two groups of picture I have of them in "The Pet Place" in the Diversions forum here. Maybe you can post some pictures of Strokers and Bogart there too.
If I Had Known I'd Live This Long I'd Have Taken Better Care Of Myself...
