In my case it's a cat left behind, but please also chime in with your experience with dogs, birds, or whatever you've dealt with (successfully).

He's a sickly senior who has always had anxiety issues, but was calmed by his also indoor-only buddy cat and -- now that his beloved friend has recently passed away -- he's terrified whenever he's left home alone for even a few hours and in a panic when I get back. I was hoping to go pet-free for a while after these two oldsters were gone (I'm retiring soon and wanted to be able to travel without worrying about either animals brought along or left behind), but he's not adjusting well to being an only pet and I'm beginning to fear he never will. Also, even if I found another calm senior to foster or adopt, there's no guarantee that just any cat I pair him with now (my two were together for 14 years) would work out and not actually make things worse.

How have you dealt with this, and what are your suggestions?
