Meet Grace (now Veyda)

Feb 8, 2013 – Update from Grace aka Veyda & Romeo aka Wicket’s new family: “I just wanted to give you a quick update on the cats. They seem to have settled in fine - they know who runs the house and aren't afraid to show it ;) They are a perfect fit and we couldn't be happier. They love playing together and chasing each other around the house. They're great with all the kids and so cuddly. They are integrated with within the family - they run to the window to help us wave goodbye when my husband leaves and run to the door to great anyone who visits. They are really patient and caring with the kids, especially the baby. Wicket is a riot. The things he gets into surprises me every day - he's definitely a clown. Veyda is a gentle queen - so graceful and so caring. She sleeps under the baby's crib and if the baby gets up in the middle of the night she will jump onto my lap so I'm rocking the both of them.

Having Veyda and Wicket join our family was a great decision and we are so happy. Veyda has a follow up with the vet Monday to see how her ear is doing. I'll keep you posted. Thanks again”.

Jan 28, 2013 - Update from Grace aka Veyda & Romeo aka Wicket’s new family: “I have to tell you - she is an absolute dream. The boys have renamed her Veyda and when you call her no matter where in the house she is she comes running (which is great for giving her medication) She is such a gentle and loving, nurturing cat and we are so lucky to have in our family. Romeo (aka Wicket) has made himself quite at home. I've learned that his only purpose in life is to find love and food. What he lacks in grace he definitely makes up with personality. He's so funny and starved for attention (no matter how much you give him!)

We couldn't be happier with the both of them and if I could speak for them I would say they appear very happy as well. They're not the least bit shy and so very playful. Thanks again for everything!”

Jan 3, 2013 - A good start to the year for little Grace and her foster mate Romeo. They were adopted together by a lovely family with three young children. We wish this dynamic duo a long and happy life with their new family.

Here is Grace's story:-)  Little Grace is a kitten with a lot of personality. She was born on April 1, 2012 in a feral colony but had greater aspirations for her life. When she was 3 weeks old, her curiosity got her into trouble. She fell down a deep, covered hole filled with mud and icy water. She managed to climb partially up the side and was crying loudly. Luckily a man heard her cries and his son managed to reach the kitten by sliding down the hole on his stomach, the father holding his ankles. He reappeared with a little crying ball of mud.

This little bundle of muddy fur was washed off, kept indoors overnight, and then returned outdoors with her mother, siblings and extended feral family. However, Grace had a tasted of the good life, and kept running up to the person who fed the ferals, twisting around his feet and climbing up his legs. Whenever, the people had an outdoor BBQ, she would come running to check out the food and play with the grandchild.

Living outdoors is a very difficult life, even when there is shelter and food, and it was clear little Grace wanted to be inside; it was also clear she would make a wonderful pet. So, she was taken into foster care and placed with another kitten. She immediately began to groom her new brother, Romeo, and then ran about, exploring her new indoor home, and playing with her toys. She will get the basic vet care and hopefully will find a forever home, with another kitten as a companion. As you can see in the third photo, Grace is now very attached to her foster mate Romeo so we are looking for a home where they can stay together.

NOTE: Because a young kitten needs feline companionship, it is the policy of Cat Rescue Network that kittens 6 months or younger be adopted out in pairs unless there is another kitten or young cat already in the home.
