Hi everyone!

GracieWe hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

Dad has been very busy at work; he’s a clerk at a Post Office about 35 minutes or so away from our home.  

A little over a month ago, we got a new Special Needs sister!  Someone sent Dad a message about a Chihuahua that had been owner-surrendered at Animal Care Services in San Antonio, Texas.  San Antonio is about 6 hours or so West of where we live.  The dog was at least 20 years old, blind, and deaf.  She had several other medical issues too, most of which were related to the neglect she’d suffered.  

Beau and GracieOn his next day off, Dad drove there and adopted her!  Aside from what she’d endured at the hands of her terrible owners, she is reasonably healthy for someone in their 90s!  We decided to name her Gracie.  Gracie has been recovering well since she’s been with us.  She won’t eat most commercial dog food, including the food stuff Beau eats.  Dad either boils chicken thighs for her, cooks ground turkey, or gives her some of the FreshPet fresh dog food (which she recently started eating).  She sleeps a lot, and when it’s warm enough, Dad has started taking her outside sometimes.  We believe that she can really only respond to touch and smell.  

Gracie has learned to use our feeders, so Dad doesn’t have to wake her up to eat now.  She eats whenever she wakes on her own.  

Merry Christmas from Ceci and her familyMore good news! The repairs on our home are finished, except for sealing some of the new grout.  Dad is cleaning the house and starting to move furniture back into place.  We doubt we’ll get to move back in by Christmas, but we’ll probably get to before the end of the year.  Attached is a pic of our Christmas card.  Dad had them made at the last minute.  Also, pics of Gracie.  Thank you all very much for visiting my page, and for your kindness and support.

A Cats Prayer

Lead me down all the right paths,
Keep me from fleas, bees, and baths.
Let me in should it storm,
Keep me safe, fed, and warm.
