They don't get it at all, it's just that age. I know because when one of my cats passed my DD was at that age and she just "didn't get it" at all. In fact, they kept on asking, for maybe about 2 weeks. I told them simply that he had died and wouldn't be with us anymore. It was the finality that they didn't seem to grasp.
The really sad thing is, they actually FORGOT the cat. Sigh. I have pictures, and they would ask...who is that cat? I would tell them, but they wouldn't remember, which is honestly harder on me than them. I wish they remembered!
