This is my cat. Her name is Gracie. She came into our lives quite by accident a couple of years ago. My husband and I were having dinner out on the porch one summer night two years ago. All of a sudden, this little kitten, no older than six weeks came up to us looking hungry. We already were living in a feral cat community, and we were feeding many of the strays already, so we gave her something to eat and some water. We went inside, and she followed us. We were used to that because of the few ferals who were not afraid of us. Next thing you know, when we put her back outside, this little kitty trying to climb up the screen on my bedroom window. So, I went and opened up the door, and she just made herself at home. It is as if she was saying, “Will you be my human, and can I stay here?” Well, who could turn this beauty away!? So, my husband said, “Okay, we can keep her.”
Gracie has quite a personality and her own way of doing things. One of the funniest things I love about her is when she stretches out on her back, curling up all four paws. It seems to be her way of saying, “I really like you,” or “I dare you to tickle my belly!” She is usually very camera shy except for the few times I took these photos. This cat is smart!She knows what it means when I whip out either my cell phone or tablet to attempt to get a photo or video of her. It’s next to impossible. She knows just how to avoid having her picture taken. The ones shown here are just a few of others I have taken over the past year. These are the rare ones where she actually looked up.
