Gracie is doing well. She’s down a couple of pounds. She no longer resembles a fat raccoon. She’s active—she’s moving and she’s cleaning herself which is just lovely. She says she prefers classic eighties rock to nineties alternative music. I try to mix it up when I leave the house and leave the radio on. She loves to purr… very loudly in my ear night…while I am trying to sleep. Her preferential position is to touch me in some fashion.

She’s eating but not “over eating.” She loves snuggle…but on her terms. Does not like her paws touched. But I can’t resist cause they’re so cute. She continues to be a messy eater.

When you adopt from a no-kill shelter, you save two lives. The animal you adopt and the one that replaces him.
