We’re still getting to know Gracie, who was born in 2021. This shy gray tabby is often found up high in the Kitty Cottage where she feels more secure, but if you wait, she will come down! Gracie is very curious and wants to know what people are up to, even if she gets a little scared when she is approached. We think Gracie would prefer a calm, quiet home, possibly with another cat to keep her company, so she can get more confident. She is young enough that her personality is still forming, so she should blossom in her forever home. While Gracie gets along well with other cats (and likes to cuddle with Ocelot and Tang), we don’t know how she feels about dogs yet. With a careful introduction, she might be okay with a calmer, slower-moving canine companion. We also haven’t had a chance to see Gracie with young children yet, but she’s likely okay with older kids who know to be patient with her. As we learn more about Gracie, we’ll keep you updated!

Gracie is…
-Shy and needs time to get confident
-Curious and engaged with her surroundings
-May be better indoors, at least until she feels more secure
-Feelings about dogs unknown, older/slower dogs may be okay with slow introduction
-Feelings about children unknown, may prefer cat-savvy children who give her space
