It's Feline Friday! August 23, 2013

This is Missy Gracie
Rescue kitty Gracie has been living
with our good friends in Lake Oswego
for years. Her right front paw was seriously
mangled by a dog before she was rescued and
adopted by our friends. It is amazing how she 
manages to get around. Of course she is an indoor
only kitty. Much safer that way.  
She lives with this dynamic trio:
All are rescued kitties.

 Steve of  Burnt Food Dude started Feline Friday
to convince all of us that he loves cats....so thanks Steve!

  1. She looks like a very determined cat!

  2. Poor cat. Good thing she found a loving home. Hope she doesn't feel left out because she's not black and white though.

  3. Gracie is fortunate to have found nice caretakers like your neighbors. I can tell that she is happy now.

    She also reminds me of our cat, Farrah Fawcett Minew. Our daughter named her. I picked her from a basket of kittens in front of the grocery store. She had to be an outside cat because she couldn't stop climbing the sheers.

  4. Beautiful kitties and the black and white kitties and floor picture would make great wall art

  5. Rescue kittens are the best - sorry the dog hurt her.

  6. Everyone-
    actually Gracie rules the cat kingdom in this household! She has seniority! You are all so nice to leave such nice comments on my blog and I am so remiss in not checking you daily!
    Once our running around stops- this weekend we leave early in the morning to go to a high school reunion and will be back home Monday...whew Cheers- enjoy the day!

  7. They are among the lucky ones, and i'm glad for them.

  8. Gracie is beautiful! How wonderful that she was rescued, and that she has such a wonderful and loving forever home. :)

  9. So glad Missy Gracie found a good home able to accommodate her limitations. Love the black& white picture of the cats on the checkered floor.

  10. I say Miss Gracie looks very regal sitting there posing heheh! I see she has some good friends to keep an eye on her :-)

    I'm a bit late is week, have a kittylicious weekend

  11. It's so heartwarming that she found a loving home...I love people who rescue animals...they're true life savers.

    Bless your friends & their FurKids! Black & white FurKids...looks like our house! of course, it doesn't have to be that way...we love them all. I am glad Missy Gracie is safe now. Some of our rescues were disabled: hit by cars, attacks, shot/amputees...it is a dangerous world.

  13. What a furry beauty, and how blessed she is to find a place where she is loved and allowed to assume a role as head of household! I love to see how a cat's personality will shine when given the opportunity!

    I agree, that black and white photo of floor with cats is super-striking, you are so good at this!

  14. I always get a rescue baby because they need us the most.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. :)

  15. Gracie looks intently comfortable where she is - I wouldn't want to go out, neither!!

  16. Gracie is quite pretty. I love that your friends rescue cats. Those that love and protect animals are the best kind of people.

    Hope you are having a great weekend!!
