I have 2 cats and I need to find a good home for them, One of them is 9 years old and has been with me all 9 years, and the other is 12 yrs old. I just found out that there is such thing as "Broken Heart Syndrome", I talked to a lady at my job and she said that both cats will probably live around 5 weeks and then die. The first 2weeks would be depression, and then they won't eat, then their liver will fail and then they will die, Is this true?

Thank you for replying.
My cat and I have a communication like a dog and a owner. She listens better then a dog and she knows my every move. She knows my voice and she talks to me when I speak to her. I dont know if I could ever get rid of her... But if push comes to shove then I will have to. She is a BIG part of my life....

In college, my roommate adopted a 10 year old cat who had been with the same woman his whole life. Sampson adapted well and we even had his former owner visit from time to time.
My Macaw, Lucy, was with her former owner for 18 years. She has been with me for over a year and is doing well.
Every pet is different but all respond to love and care when entering a new environment. Hope this helps
