Arrival Story:
After losing my 14 year old girl, I began to look for another kitty that needed a home and and a human friend. Gracie was rescued from a local shelter and taken in by the rescue group. After getting a clean bill of health, they posted her picture and a brief Bio on Petfinder.Com. I went out and met her and just knew that she was the right Cat for me and I hoped I would turn out to be the right Human for her.

I'm not sure how Gracie ended up at the Shelter, scheduled to be Euthanized, but, I do know that she had a litter of kittens with the rescue group, and also was a substitute Mama, for another kitten there, who needed one.

Hi All:
Well, Easter has come and gone, and Checkers and I made it thru without Mom trying to put Bunny Ears on us, or dress us in Easter Outfits for pictures~that's a good thing!
What do you guys think about this food recall? I guess that's a silly question, I'm sure you're all as horrified by it as Checkers, Mom and I are. How did this happen?
When Mom had our Bridge Sister, Heidi, she loved Fancy Feast and Mom's efforts to move her to a higher quality food, weren't very successful.
When Mom adopted Checkers and I, she wanted to start us off on a better quality food. I had been eating Eukanuba pouches for quite a long time, ~YIKES! I really liked them, but, YIKES!
I'm happy to say, I seem fine, but, I feel like I dodged a bullet, or, at least I hope I did. Could there be long term, cumulative effects? Who knows? Mom will keep an eye on me, and if anything seems off, she won't forget that I ate this food for a long time. Checkers doesn't like wet food, just dry, but, she did like some tastes of the gravy, from my pouches, so, Mom could have had 2 sick kitty's. Once again, YIKES!
We're both on California Naturals, now, I get wet and dry and Checkers just eats the dry. It's pretty good, and Mom is keeping an eye out for other high quality foods that she feels she can trust.
OK, enough of that, we've all heard about it, endlessly.
I turned 3 on March 31st. It was a very nice day, Mom was home, and I got spoiled :-) I also got some TIKI Tuna and a new toy. Checkers didn't buy me anything, but, in her defense, when you're indoor only, it puts a crimp in your shopping!
It's been 16 months, now, since I was adopted by Mom, and found my forever home. I have Mom, my younger Sister, Checkers for company, and lots and lots of love. I'm a lucky girl.
Mom says she's the lucky one, and I have to agree, we are pretty special Cats (and just so she doesn't forget, we keep reminding her)!
I better go, but, I'd like to say, I'm also very lucky to have the Catster community. I keep all of you in my daily prayers for your health and happiness, and our family always remembers those special kitty's who need extra purrs and prayers, and we always will.
Huggs and Purrs to all of you~Kitty Power!!


Long time since I've written

I don't write a lot in my Diary, and it's been a long time. This will be short, but, I wanted to write today, because it's been 11 months today, since I came to my forever home.

In that time, I've acquired a younger Sister, Checkers, she recently turned one and she is from the same rescue group, Julia's Jungle, that I was adopted from. We get along great and it is nice to have a friend, since Mom has to work.

In late April, our Mom had to say good-bye to her Mom, who went to the Human Rainbow Bridge, I think Mom said it's called Heaven. She was elderly and she had something called Dementia, it caused her mind to not be the same, I think that's very sad. She had gone downhill and was not doing well at all. Mom says she's home and at peace now. Still, it's very hard to say good-bye and we were sad for Mom. We hope she found our Rainbow Bridge Sister, Heidi, who went to the Bridge, a year ago. I think she did, because Mom says they were great friends, and now they can be together again.

In late June, Mom, Checkers and I moved to a new apartment. It isn't that far from the old apartment, but, it's nicer, and a lot more convenient to transportation for Mom. The move was a little traumatic, especially moving day, but, Checkers and I adjusted fine and we really like it here.

Halloween has come and gone and now Thanksgiving is coming up. Checkers and I are very Thankful to have a forever home. This will be the first Christmas that Checkers is with us (I was still getting settled in, last Christmas). Mom says she can't imagine having a tree, because :-) it's scary to think what the two of us might do to it!

My Paws are getting tired, so, let me, on behalf of all of my family, wish everyone, a joyous Holiday Season, and a New Year, filled with Love, Happiness and Much Health.


A friend??

OH BOY~ just a very quick entry tonight. My Human is thinking of adopting another Cat!! How do I feel about that?
I honestly don't know. It might be nice to have a friend here, when Mom is at work, or has to be out doing Human stuff~but---
I'm really still settling in and adjusting and I think I deserve the time to do that. Mom agrees and says we'll go slow, no decisions, she's just thinking about it. And looking on the Petfinder Website~incidentally, where she first saw me!
I'll keep you updated, and in the meantime, I'll keep reminding the Human not to rush into anything.
Other than the possibility of a new friend, no big news. Grey and rainy here for quite awhile, but, according to Mom, better than the slippery white stuff!
Not that it matters, I'm Indoor only, the closest thing I get to that big world outside that patio, is watching the wet squirrels :-)
Until next time-----Gracie
