Gracie is joining
for this week's
Today, three years ago Gracie
left this world on her way to her
Journeys next adventure.
It is a day I can recall with such clarity,
as I guess those type of days are.
I had to make an appointment to let her
go, and I spent a lot of time with her
until our afternoon appointment.
It was a beautiful mild February day,
in which Gracie got to enjoy being out
on her beloved platform on her catio one last time.
Her lungs kept filling up with fluid.
They had been drained many times.
We never knew the source of why this was happening.
Even after a great deal of testing, but
she was uncomfortable,as she couldn't breath.
Since there was no end in sight, and
Gracie wasn't one who did well away from
home, I had to make a decision for her.
I don't regret helping Gracie to the Rainbow Bridge,
but I felt she deserved more time.
She was only 9.
Gracie was an abandoned gray tabby cat.
She was left at the ACC doorsteps.
She was doomed to die by whomever left her there.
But, fate spared her and me.
I scooped her up and took her home that July day
way back in 2005.
She was my sweet Gracie Grace.
I miss our time together each morning where she would
sit with me while I was on the computer.
I miss seeing her adoration of her big brother Ping.
I miss those sweet chirps.
I miss seeing those quick turns.
I miss how crazy you went over Nip.
I miss how easy you were.
I miss you Gracie.
I will see you again.
One day Gracie.
