Gracie was a stray in Waverly, Iowa. Some kind people in SE Waverly have been feeding and caring for many stray cats over the years. Waverly Pet Rescue has been taking them in since February 2017. Gracie is the 36th one we took in. So Gracie is now a WPR cat. She is now up to date on shots, and spayed. And she also tested negative for FeLV / FIV.

Gracie is 4-1/2 years old as of April 2021. Gracie takes time to warm up to people and new situations, so she needs a loving patient family to adopt her. Once she feels secure she is very affectionate and loves to be petted and to play. She is nervous being picked up or held, so her foster family is working on that. She should have a home with older kind children. She has lived with other cats, but was picked on, so now she hisses at others. She has not been exposed to dogs. She just really needs the right loving forever family to give her a chance to show them the sweet Gracie she is.

1/3/17 UPDATE: Our Gracie Lou has come a long way in the months we've had her. She no longer hides except at an occasional loud noise, but comes out again right away. She is super sweet and loving. She loves be petted and to get kisses on the top of her head. She is always flopping on her side and exposing her belly to ask for a belly rub. She is now ok being held for short periods of time, even when getting her nails trimmed. She is very playful and her favorite toy is a stuffed mouse, which she gives a bath in her water dish often. She no longer hisses at site of other cats and ok being near them with a gate between them. With her history we are proceeding slowly with putting her in the same area with another cat. Right now we feel with proper introductions, time and patience she would be ok with another non-dominate cat who would not pick on her. She is a super sweet cat and would make a great addition to a loving, patient family.

11/21/18 UPDATE: Gracie is still making wonderful strides. Her adjustment time to changes is very short now. She has discovered a cushy cat bed and it’s now her favorite sleeping spot. That is such amazing progress compared to the condo hole she used to prefer. She can be held for longer periods of time now as we keep working with her. She loves to play especially in crinkle paper (or brown packing paper to most people). She is doing incredible getting along with her foster friends as they are all non-dominant, but a few can be a bit grouchy at times. Her foster friends is named Charlotte.

10/3/19 UPDATE: Took her to the vet today. Gracie has a sort of gum disease that attacks her teeth so eventually she will lose teeth/need extractions. I asked if there was anything we could do to help and she told me no.

Will someone please adopt Gracie and give her a forever home? $95 adoption fee.

WE ARE A NO-KILL 501-C-3 NON-PROFIT RESCUE. All donations are tax deductible. We do not have a shelter. All pets live in foster homes. We only adopt to indoor homes. To see an animal, you must fill out an application first and then once approved, we can set up for you to meet the animal you are interested in. We do background checks on all applicants.

All animals see a vet for shots and normal exams. If they appear healthy and there are no obvious health concerns, then extensive testing is not done. This is normal procedure for pet rescues and shelters.
Waverly Pet Rescue puts a lot of money into medical care for each dog and cat we take in. $200 is the average cost for basic care. This does not include if the animal had an injury, required extra flea / ear mite treatments, or needed extra days at the vet office.
