Sorry for your loss, but as Mr. Rothstein correctly said, pets are treated in N.Y. law as objects, with replacement cost the only recoverable damages you can obtain in court. Consequently, the costs of bringing a lawsuit are prohibitive. As a non-legal recommendation, may I suggest you consider adopting a rescue cat, as you sound like a very caring owner.
