Graycee- The Cat God Sent


We have another cat!  Kristen has a new sister.
Sunday Sarah Kate told me there was a cat at the door.  I saw a young cat trying to get in.  She was scratching at the door.
Emily prayed right then and there that we could keep the cat.  When Emily went to bed she asked me to pray the cat would stay with us forever.

Got up Monday and she was still there.

I fed her and gave her water.  I KNEW we had a cat then. ha!  She was STARVING!!!!  I asked some folks in the neighborhood about her.  Nobody knows who she belongs to.  But, another neighbor has a cat that looks just like her hanging out at there house too.
I took her to the vet and the tested to see if she had a micro chip.  She did not.  I got her some shots and flea control.
She is going to be our outside cat.  Emily is SOOO SOOOO HAPPY!!!!  Sarah Kate is pretty thrilled herself.

I have so been wanting the girls to have a pet that they could love on and would love them back.  It was a new experience for us to take a cat to the vet and the whole office staff did not have to gear up and wear armored gloves and use a steal blanket.  We are enjoying a loving cat.
I know Kristen is really mean, but I love her!!!!  She seems okay with this cat haning out in our yard.

We hope Graycee is here to stay and the girls are going to get to love on her for many years.

The Cat that God Sent.

I just don't know what to think about that title.

I love how your girls stop and pray at the very moment they need God to intervene!! There is nothing like child-like faith. You are a great mom!

We just adopted a kitten yesterday named Greycie! So fun! My girls keep telling me that they can't believe that we have a cat that we can keep forever. Your little Graycee is adorable.

God sent us a similar, sweet, loving, starving little kitty last year (~4 months after our cat of 8 yrs became sick & passed away). My daughter (almost 7 then) was so excited to have a cat & named her Lily! She has been a great pet for us & tolerates everything from my 2 kiddos. She is loved & snuggled so much, prob too much for her liking some days. My daughter, Grace, even dresses her up in doll & dog clothes! Congrats on a loving cat for your girls! Love to read your blog! :)

How are you keeping her in your yard? We tried having an outdoor cat that was a stray, but heard unless you have a pen for them, you cannot keep them. My son would have LOVED it it Cookie could have stayed. Do tell your "not let it wander" secrets. I love how you describe Kristen!

Oh she's so pretty! That's great that you kept her. She looks like my cat, Daisy.

Complicated

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
