Additional Details

BIG FAN OF: Being with the people she knows and trusts. She really loves being petted when she's comfortable.

NOT A FAN OF: Taking things too fast. She likes to go at her own pace in new environments and when getting used to new people. Don't be surprised if she finds a cozy spot to hide away and watch for a while. Once she's ready she'll come to you for love.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Gracie is a quiet, reserved kitty who is sweet, gentle, and well-behaved. She is more of an independent cat, but once she is used to you, she'll come stretch out on the floor nearby, letting you know she wants to be petted. She also loves being brushed.

OTHER REASONS SHE'S SPECIAL: Her foster family said she rarely gets up on the furniture. She's not a huge fan of getting her nails trimmed, but she will tolerate it.

DREAM HOME: A quiet home with a patient family who will give her all the time she needs to settle in. It may take a few weeks, but just let her go at her own pace and she'll share her sweet personality with you. She is worth it!

This cat is participating in our Shelter Cat Getaway program -- a program designed to give cats a vacation from the shelter and let them enjoy home life while they wait to be adopted. While vacation is fun, there really is no place like home, so please consider adopting one of these deserving cats! As part of this program, their adoption fee is just $50 each (or $75 for a pair)! To learn more about this cat or schedule a time to meet it, please contact Betsy at bsalmon@arl-iowa.org.
