Gracie and Sweetie's Story
by
Erica Wildman

Gracie and Sweetie came to us in April and May 2005.

Gracie had 3 kitties: Mary (the star), Jennie, and Julie.  Three weeks later, Sweetie gave birth to 5 kittens: Prissy (Star #2), Timmie, Mikey, Jessie, and Jerry.  We had all the cats spayed/neutered, before they were adopted. (Photo - 01) Gracie and Sweetie

Sweetie, although shy, was placed in a petfood store where she was able to roam freely and was adopted about three weeks later by a customer, and now has a loving home.  Gracie is not adoptable, so she still lives with us. (Photo - 02) Gracie and her kitties have found a save haven

Gracie and Sweetie were sisters. Their mother brought them to my friendís house, an 82 year old lady who had been feeding her. During the course of that year she brought her three litters to Dorothy and soon those kitties had kitties. We did what we could to catch them but never caught the mother. Once her kitties got older and could find their way to her house by themselves, some of them stayed in her yard, she did not come back with them until she had a new litter.

In the end she never came back.
