A Sad Loss

I know many have been following and anxiously awaiting the arrival of our little Gracie's first litter. I am sad to report that Gracie suffered complications and lost the kittens. This has been a hard time on all of us - me, Gracie, Gracie's breeder, and those folks waiting for our girl's babies. Gracie has been mourning her lost babies, but thankfully is stable and hanging in there. She is now the self appointed baby sitter of Juliet's litter who she now snuggles with and will follow around.

Because we cannot bear the idea of putting Gracie through this risk again, she will be spayed as soon as possible. We are fortunate to have a family that is very excited to add Gracie to their home once she recovers fully. They were waiting for a little girl from Gracie and were thrilled at the opportunity to have the little love bug herself.

So, a sad loss but I am truly thankful that our girl made it through.

Oh - I'm so sorry to read this - but so glad that Gracie is ok. I'm sure that with your love and care she'll bounce back and give her a big hug from Scotland.

Thank you. I was a very tough week and I am so happy Gracie is still here. I wasn't sure there for a bit. She is such a sweet girl.
