  1. Those beautiful blue eyes!! She’s a beauty and of course I love her name as my little dog’s name is Gracie. I’m glad you have your two fur babies to love and that love you back. I’ m like you pertaining to my deceased dogs. They live with within my heart and I talk about them often. Now its usually references to silly things they would do. Gracie has not replaced them she merely expanded my heart,

  2. Happy to see your first pictures of Gracie! She’s a pretty kitty! She’s really starting to find her place in your home. We always have a lot of doves in my backyard. To me, their wings sound “squeeky.”

  3. Gracie is so cute! She reminds me so much of the first cat we had as newlyweds. I got her from a shelter in Chicago. I named her Sasha. She was white with blue eyes, just like Gracie.

    I love mourning doves. I hear them cooing here often and we have a pair that visit our yard and the bird bath every day.

  4. And now you have 2 beautiful kitties…lovely. Hope it keeps going well there!

  5. What a pretty kitty! I don’t think it will be long before the two of them are snuggling up together. It happened with my two after a bit. Of course, my older girl always ruled the roost!

  6. Ohhh ❤ my gosh, Gracie is just gorgeous Brenda!!! Lots of fun and good times coming with these 2!!! I love your photos of the Doves 🕊 We used to have them in our neighborhood. I’ve not seen them around for 5+ years.

  7. Gracie is just darling and I am happy to hear she is settling in so well. Great pictures of the doves. We have a pair that come every day to the back yard.

  8. Happy to read that Gracie is settling in well and Ivy seems to be accepting her new “sister”. They are two beautiful girls.

  9. Such good news about GM. I’m surprised she is coming out so soon but very happy for you. I wonder how long it will take Ivy to start playing w GM? They make a beautiful pair.

  10. Gracie is so darn cute, those beautiful blue eyes!

    My mom loved to see the mourning doves in her back yard. I remember their cooing sound.

  11. So happy to see things are moving along happily with the kitties. Such pretty girls they are!

  12. Hi Brenda,

  13. what a beauty Gracie is, I am so pleased to hear that she is feeling more comfortable with her surrounding’s and that Ivy appears to be a little more accepting of her.

  14. The first thing I did when I got up this morning, was race to my laptop to check out how Ivy and Gracie Mae are doing. It tickles me to be no end. I can’t wait until tomorrow to know more.

  15. It’s so funny that Ivy seems to be hypnotized by Gracie Mae’s antics, LOL! Ivy does the same kind of playing, although now that she is all grown up she tosses her toys around and plays fetch with you rather than chasing her tail around. Perhaps Ivy is realizing that Gracie Mae is one of her “tribe” and just like her, just much younger and smaller. What gorgeous blue eyes GM has, wow. And what looks like a white coat except for the pale beige coloration in her tail – so beautiful, and color-coordinated with Ivy – very chic those two kitties, white, black and a hint of pale beige.

  16. Gracie is such a beautiful cat. Do you know what kind of a cat she is? Glad she is settling in.
    My daughter had to get between our dog and an opossum one night also! A scary situation!

  17. Great to hear thatGracie is adjusting so nicely and quickly! She’s beautiful!

  18. Cats are very intuitive. Gracie Mae has quickly acknowledged the love and security she has with you and Ivy. Her walks across your body in the night indicate she’s claimed you for herself!
    With my six cats, I observed the females being less welcoming to newcomers than the males. However, after awhile, they lost interest in being “hissy” and accepted them. We’re all a happy family here, and your two little ladies will enjoy that same status soon! I LOVE your posts!
    Also, cats are most active at dawn and dusk…that’s what vets say. Mine sleep all day, too, after a burst of morning energy. Then they come alive again in late afternoon!
