My Gracie Girl

Gracie escaped out the front door yesterday. We have been keeping the front and back door open to keep the air flow going with the heat, and Gracie has been sitting at the front door just watching the hall. She has not stepped out, just staying in her safe zone surveying life outside the front door. We went into the bedroom to put away laundry, and Eric thought he had shut the front door, but he hadn't. She went for a walk. When we came back into the living room we saw the door fully ajar and Gracie wasn't in sight. Eric went down stairs, and started to look around the property calling her name, and I checked her normal places in the house. Then I walked out to our front landing area, and called her name, and she started to HOWL for me. I sent Eric in her direction, and he picked her up at the front door of our neighbors place. She kept howling, and the minute I touched her she melted and started to purr loudly.

It's funny how much I think this cat doesn't like her life, or her family, but when she's scared, she turns into a kitten again wanting her "Mom". She has been much nicer the past 24 hours, and I think her little "walk" scared her into niceness, at least for a little while.

I love my kitty, and occasionally think I need to give her away to make her happier, but after 6 years of being a family, that's just too hard for me to do, I think Gracie and I are in for the long haul, I just hope some day she decides to be a lap cat again! (hahaha)
