SAFE 2/16/17 OWNER DIED AND GRACE NEEDS A NEW HOME!
Grace is a lovely older lady who’s spent most of her life in the same home, so considering she’s found herself in a shelter she’s doing quite well! She wasn’t getting along too well with the two other kitties she lived with, but we have a feeling she’ll be just fine in her new forever home. This gray girl has beautiful green eyes and is always ready to roll on her back and side to get more scratches and pets! She is inquisitive, adorable, and a total sweetheart after a few minutes of warming up. Check her out enjoying some good head scratches and cheek rubs in the video below!

Lying on blanket at side of kennel, alert, attentive to me as I approach. Stays in place when I open cage door, a little hesitant as I first slowly extend my hand to her, but she warms up quickly! Started rolling around playfully, allowed petting all over, tail goes straight up and quivers. Plays some with a new catnip-infused plush toy I give her, absolutely adorable. Allows all handling. Really sweet. Took video, will submit. Gave some treats and a feather toy.
Grace is a 7 year- old Spayed Blue and white Domestic SH mix; she came to her previous family’s home as a stray , and is being surrendered due to her owner’s death and Grace having pet conflict with 2 other Female cats in the home. Grace has no known health issues or injures and has no vet history.
Around strangers Grace is shy for a few days; she runs away and hides when the individual approaches. She has not lived in a home with children, but has lived with two other family cats. When Grace first came a across the two cats in the home she was respectful and kept to herself. However after a few days Grace began to hiss and growl at the cats whenever they tried to approach her. The previous family stated that Grace had no bite history.
Grace does struggle to go into her carrier; she will try to run away whenever she sees it. Grace was described as Friendly, shy and Talkative by her previous family. Graces favorite activity is climbing and jumping on the furniture. While the family is home she follows them around. Grace only eats dry food of the Purina brand and is free feed. Grace is litter box trained and uses a hooded litter box with clumping litter. Grace enjoys scratching on the knitted fabric of the couch.
Upon intake Grace was slightly nervous she allowed the counselor to pet her softly, she did struggle while in the counselor hold but relaxed once placed on the table and petted. The counselor was able to collar and take a photo of Grace.
