Facts about Gracie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 1178
  • Hair: Short

Gracie was abandoned when her former owner moved out of a mobile home park on the Peninsula and just left Gracie behind. A kind resident saw her plight and began to feed the sweet gray cat and eventually Gracie charmed her way into coming inside at night. But then  management cracked down on the residents feeding abandoned cats and threatened people with eviction. Poor little Gracie, on the street and homeless for a second time, but this time with no food supply! Of course that kind resident called for help, and that is how we took Gracie into a foster home.

Gracie is an attractive, people-friendly, playful housepet, who loves to be petted, and absolutely L-O-V-E-S her plush kitty bed--a huge step up for a cat who had been sleeping under a trailer--but your lap is a good place too. She also likes to spend time interacting with you, especially if you happen to have a dangly wand toy for her to stalk and chase. She is also playful with small toys, and is good with other mellow cats. Gracie is a lover, not a fighter! She would also do well as an only cat, as long as you will provide her with sufficient love and attention during the hours you are at home.

Spayed, tested, vaccinated and microchipped, Gracie is eager to move to her fur-ever home.

About Community Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Community Cat Rescue was formed to improve the lives of homeless cats through adoption, promotion of spaying/neutering, TNR and colony management and educational outreach to the public. We are a group of experienced rescue and TNR volunteers who have developed a network of foster homes for rescued street cats, and a regular program of outreach for adoption and education at local farmers markets, public events and at pet stores and shopping areas. We host a minimum of 3 outreach events per month, and often as many as 6 events. In addition to adopting out cats as family pets, we also have an active TNR program, including relocation of feral cats as "working cats" to appropriate homes if they are not safe in their original territory.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Sundays 10:00 AM to 1 PM at the California Avenue Farmers Market, Palo Alto (see website for dates)

Saturdays, 8:00 AM to Noon, at the Downtown Palo Alto Farmers Market on Gilman Street (see website for dates)

Local Pet Stores (see website for dates and times)

Our Adoption Process...

Potential Adopters fill out an adoption profile and application to help ensure that the cat or kittens they are applying for is/are a good match for their household. This is followed by an interview (phone or in person). All of our cats are in foster homes, so we know their personalities very well and can help you make a great match for everyone in your home.

If there are other pets in the household we provide assistance in introducing the new cat(s). We have lots of experience with multiple cat households, and we will work with you to make sure that everyone gets along and is happy. Cats or kittens can be returned to us within two weeks if they do not fit into your family or household.

Our contract specifically prohibits declawing and requires that if the new owner find that scratching is a problem, they return the cat to us rather than declaw.

Our adoption fees are $100 for a kitten (or $175 for two kittens)and $50 for adult cats (over 12 months old), all of whom are spay/neutered, micro-chipped, immunized, treated for fleas and worms and given any required veterinary treatment before adoption. The value of these treatments is several times the adoption fee!
