Meet Gracie...


We adopted her yesterday.
All we planned to do on Saturday was pick up some more fish for the tank and we ended up applying to adopt a cat.
Crazy how things work sometimes.

She's almost 2 yrs old. She had the name Grace but we thought Gracie sounded a bit cuter.

Both myself and J have cat allergies but only to certain cats.
We had J pet the cat then rub his hands on his face. In the past, if he's allergic, he'd start sneezing and getting itchy eyes almost immediately. 
No reaction.
I also didn't have any reaction.
It was meant to be.

She has very pretty markings.

This is what she's been doing most of today...
basking in the sun, watching the birds and bugs fly around.
Pretty simple life...

The really strange thing was, in the adjoining cages there were cats named Halle and Tika....not very common names!! I have a cousin named Tika. It would have been just to strange to take that pair home...plus if they were anything like Tika and I, they'd have gotten into a lot of mischief. :)

Sweet kitty has a new home, that's great for you all! Interesting about the allergies. I thought if you were allergic to cats you were allergic to all cats. I had a friend who didn't like cats...so she said she was allergic, now that's another thing!

I would probably do the same thing if I had a fish tank...bring home some other sweet animal.

What a sweet kitty...hope your allergies stay away so you can keep her.

Congratulations on your new addition - she looks very content in her new home!!!

you are a brave soul..testing the allergies that way! alas, I am allergic to all cats, so will just wave from Ohio! basking in the sun does sound quite soothing. I am sure Gracie will be very happy with you. Wonder if she has artistic tendencies?

She is beautiful! Congrats on the new furbaby :)

How strange and amazing that those other 2 had you and your cousin's names! Wow!

I can't believe it. Especially after what you have always told me about cats. I see a cat house (oops, bed sounds better), which means she has already taken over your life.

Gracie is adorable. Next come the bowls, cat combs and brushes, shots, teeth cleaning, flea and tick products, toys, etc. Make you wish you (and your wallet) had stayed at home (GRIN)?

A BIG, BIG CONGRATULATIONS!! You are now a cat owner!!!!!!

BTW, this is the first time I've seen that play house for the kids. I bet E built it. I am in awe. You treat J and J as well as you treat your new Gracie (tee hee).

Hope you have time for tea today, since I wasn't here yesterday to visit.

she must be a very clean little girl .... it's the dander that causes the allergy from what I understand .... so she must work very hard at keeping her fur dander-free

Pretty cat and that is funny about the names...that would be too weird calling out your own name!

What a beautiful kitty! Glad you brought her home.
