Gracie is having a ball...


Remember the story of Gracie - the blind cat. It's taken forever to get Gracie used to being indoors, especially with the door closed. But recently Gracie decided that it was safe so she spent some days just getting the outlay of the room inside the front door and now she has practically moved in. She is now so much as ease that she actually plays. Just watch her having a ball (with a bell ball)!! She went for the sound and felt her way to the ball whenever she was close to the sound - and I swear she was giggling...











Tired out... time for a nap!

What a lovely post, I can feel Miss Gracie's joy! We share our lives with a girl with only one eye...she's a sweetheart, you'd never know she had a disability.

Dearest Joan,
That was indeed a very unusual but touching post. How happy Gracie still can be, being young and playful thanks to your thoughtful bell-ball! It often takes very little to make up for the lack of things.
Hugs to you and Happy Palm Sunday!

I LOVE Gracie and I loved her the first time you wrote about her!!! She had already touched me on the cards you had made for Christmas. She is indeed a very special girl, and I can really see how much she enjoys life... I can indeed see her giggling! :) That ball with a tiny bell inside is great for her, kitties love them, and for Gracie it's a wonderful opportunity for playing in spite of her being blind.
What a touching, happy post!!!
Lots of love to you, dearest Joan, and will you please give a special little kiss to Gracie for me?

Awwww how sweet she is!! I can literally see her smile :-) What a great invention, the bell-ball. It must be wonderful for Gracie to be able to play and HEAR where something is, when not being able to see it - must give so much satisfaction and joy, which comes across in the pictures. Bless both of you xo

Oh, my, she is a beautiful cat - I just want to snuggle with her and give her lovvins. She would fit quite nicely on my lap on a blanket in my big chair and we could both nap. Hugs & kisses from KS,

What a way to go, Gracie kittie. Grab that noisy old ball. Remember, IN is definitely better, probably especially for you.
