    upon meaning after

    Is that sentence correct:
    Upon his cat's death, he began looking for another pet.

    Yes, but note my corrections to your actual question itself.

    Re: upon meaning after

    As Skrej indicated, it is grammatically correct. I don't find it very natural, however. I would say "When his cat died he started looking for another pet".
