2 Years old Spayed Female 'sweet and gentle' mix!
Gracie is an approximately 2 year old muted Calico cat. She came into ARF’s care with kittens, who have long since been adopted. She has been in ARF’s care for some time, and she will require patient and committed adopters.
Gracie is a gentle, sweet girl, but she takes a long time to warm up to people, or even to spend time outside of hiding. She has been in her current foster home for about 4 months, and she is only now feeling comfortable enough to come upstairs for treats and occasionally join a family member on the bed.
She is quite smitten, however, with the resident cat, and would do well in a house that had a cat with whom she could bond. While she tolerates the resident dog, who is very cat-friendly, she would probably do best in a home without pets (other than cats). She is very treat motivated and has responded well to encouragement with treats. She does NOT like to be picked up, so getting Gracie to showings or to the vet can be a challenge. However, she will come to you for petting and enjoys a conversation every once in a while.
Gracie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. She would love to find a patient home to call her own. Might that be your family? To apply to adopt Gracie, click on the 'Adopt-Me' icon beside her photo at www.arfontario.com!
