Happy 4th birthday, Gracie!

We've chosen June 1st to be Gracie's special day! It's very arbitrary, but pretty accurate, according to the first v-e-t we went to for shots and lady-garden-ectomy!

Here she is about 4 years and 1 month ago, just after her babies were born and all four of them were with Auntie Deb.

She was almost 2 years old when this one was taken. She and her boys were quite well settled into this household by this time! She's very relaxed!

Grace was between 2 and 3 years old in this shot -- she just couldn't seem to get comfy when all her boys wanted to do was to cuddle -- or at least be close by. No rest for the Mommy, you know!

Now ... here's one of her favorite spots to snooze -- right under my feet when I'm in my office chair! On this particular day, she was so zonked she didn't even know I had gotten up and grabbed the camera!

So HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY, my beautiful Gracie! We all love you around here, but no one loves you more than I do!!

What a special day this is.
I remember when I wanted to adopt Momma Grace and Missy put an abrupt stop to that.
It wasn't meant to be, obviously she was waiting for you so she could stay with Audace and Ruse.
(And KC flew into our lives a few months later).
Happy Birthday to you, Momma Grace, you are a beautiful, wonderful kitty.
Love from ML & The Sherwood Bunch
