The hardest thing about bringing in a new foundling is remembering that they aren't like your other cats. Cats, like people, all have their own individual traits and personalities, and some times it can be hard getting used to. My oldest cat, for instance, loves to snuggle and cuddle and be held. My second cat isn't a huge snuggler, but she'll tolerate being held. My youngest cat, though, won't have anything to do with it. If you allow her to approach you, she'll let you pet her, but if you try and pick her up or force her to cuddle, she fights you. If your other cat was a snuggler, and this little guy isn't, it takes time getting used to letting them approach you first.
Just remember to give the little darling room. She's an adult cat, so she may take longer adjusting than a kitten would. Try not to overwhelm her. One of the easiest mistakes to make with a new cat is to bring them into their new home, and then just let them go. Too many new experiences, too quickly, can frighten a cat. It's best to work one room at a time. Put them in the room you plan on spending the most time in, and keep them there for a day or two. When they calm down and get used to that room, they'll probably start trying to escape into the next room, once that happens feel free to let them out and let them explore on their own. Just move slowly, take your time, and let the cat adjust to you.
You're doing a wonderful thing bringing her in to your home. She'll never replace the cat you lost, but she'll help ease the pain.
