Hello – my name is Gracie and after all these years, I’m slowly discovering what life can really be like in an actual home. I never knew it could be so good! I get wonderful meals which I enjoy so much, if the weather is nice enough I get to go outside for a thing called a “walk”, and it’s just all so comfortable and warm with so much attention and affection! It’s so different from anything I’ve seen before, I can hardly believe it and it tends to frighten me at first until I can see it’s real and I can settle down – which I do very comfortably, by the way, on a soft bed. Now I’ve relaxed in my foster home, I’ve made another discovery……toys! Soft ones, and some of them even squeak! I like to carry them around and take them to bed, though it seems that the squeaky ones tend to disappear when it’s dark and my foster mom also goes to bed – haven’t figured that one out yet. No accidents in the house on my record – my foster sibling lets me follow her around and shows me what to do in this whole new world which I’m learning to love so much.
