Hi! My name is Gracie
I am an American Shorthair from Coldwater, MI
Nicknames: Gracie the Growler, Squirm, Pain in the Butt, Family Dog, Gracie Marie Davis
Age: 13 years old
Coat: short haired
Education: I am here on earth to give all the love I can (you know when you give love you get it back in return twice as much!!). I greet all visitors at the door and proceed to give them the same love and attention I give my own family. I am a one-cat hospitality committee. I am also very good with the little ones. Mom says it is because of my attention problem and need for attention that I put up with all the tail and ear pulling and inappropriate behavior while Calli and Sasha run for their lives and hide away. I also try to give love and attention to my two sisters though they are not nearly as appreciate as the rest of the family. In fact I usually get my butt kicked for the effort.
My favorite tricks and treats are: I like to play catch with my fuzzy and feather mice, though I sometimes I can get side tracked or forget to bring the mouse back. It is my duty to give love and attention to everyone in the house. I can get very vocal if I am ignored or don’t get enough love and attention. I tend to forget what I did five minutes ago, and because of this I am sad to say that I am abused and neglected. Don’t get me wrong, my family is very caring and loving but it is an unending and non-winnable fight. I can never get enough love and attention. Even if I did, I would forget it five minutes later… and Sardines packed in water, no salt added
Where I hang out: Anywhere there is a person to give me love.
My favorite grubs: I love all food. Let me see…Whiskas dry cat food, Fancy Feast canned cat food, Whiskas Temptations treats, Whisker Lickin’s treats, catnip – home grown or store bought (you must get your greens), tuna fish, and the best, sardines packed in water, no salt added. Mom loves to spoil me.
My pet peeves: That there is not a person who only existence and sole purpose is to give me love and attention every second of every minute of every hour of every day 365 days a year.
What I love about my owners: Where to start….Dad is great. Every night after work, I get to be carried up stairs for the clothing ritual, which involves me getting lots of love and Dad time. He tends to hold me and boy do I love to hang over his shoulder and oh yea attack his stocking feet. That is the best, though you cannot attack Mom’s stocking feet – its just wrong. Kyle is a great brother. I like to play catch with him. Calli and I love to chase each other around and get into wrestling matches, which can get carried away, and usually end up with Mom yelling at us to knock it off. Mom is my one on one. She plays with me, feeds me, gives me treats, cleans my water fountain, and gives me unconditional love whenever I need it.
My cat hobbies: My favorite thing to do is get and give loves in return. There is nothing better than getting attention from the ones you love. And I have my hands full with my Dad, Mom and brother Kyle. I love to sleep with my Mom and curl up on her lap. Moms have the most comfortable laps you know. I also enjoy curling up on one of the soft blankets or homemade cushions that Mom has made for me and taking catnaps. Otherwise I am probably somewhere in the house playing with my toys, that Mom yells about them being all over the house, or engaging my sister, Calli in a game of tag.
Pet motto: “Get all the love and attention you can from anyone you can.”
