    Awwww......how sad. This makes me feel so badly for you and for your Jack Russell that was close to his feline sister.  18 years is a pretty long time for your kitty to live!
    I know I would get to a shelter or a rescue as soon as possible to see the cats that are available for adoption.  In fact, if you're not sure how your pooch would react to a new member of your fa,ily, take him with you to the shelter and let him actually SEE the cats & kittens.  If he seems happy and excited, as the animals caretakers if you can allow the cat & dog to interact a little.  If they take to one another, you have solved your doggy's sadness!
    If not, than It will be just a matter of grieving time and he'll be OK.

      Excellent answer. I want to add that I am so sorry that your owner ( the cat ) passed on. 18 years is incredible. You must have taken care of each other very well.
