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

All animals receive medical care from our vet, Dr Clare Bartholomew. Animals are spay or neutered as necessary, in order to help reduce pet over population. This a full exam, vaccinations, flea and tick control and a microchip.

Cats have been domesticated for thousands of years and have a rich history. The domestication of cats likely began in ancient Egypt, where they were revered as sacred animals and often depicted in art and literature. Cats were believed to have special powers, including the ability to ward off evil spirits, and were often kept in temples and homes to protect against pests.

As cats became more domesticated, they spread throughout the world and were prized for their ability to control pests. In medieval Europe, cats were kept on ships to control rat populations and were often depicted as symbols of good luck.

Cats were also popular in ancient Rome, where they were kept as pets and were often depicted in literature and art. In the Middle Ages, cats were associated with witches and were often feared and misunderstood. However, by the Renaissance, cats had regained their popularity as pets and were often kept by wealthy families.

Today, cats are one of the most popular pets in the world and are kept by millions of people. They are highly intelligent and adaptable animals that can thrive in a variety of environments. In addition to being popular pets, cats also play important roles in many cultures, including serving as symbols of good luck and prosperity.

Despite their long history, there is still much we do not know about the domestication of cats. Studies of ancient DNA have shed some light on the origins of domestic cats, but there is still much to be learned about their evolution and the role they have played in human history. Regardless of their past, cats remain an important and beloved part of many people’s lives today.
