Our incomparable cat Gracie passed away in January after 18 years of life. She was found as a kitten on the Athens Tech campus along with a sibling, both orphaned after their mother was struck by a vehicle. Gracie went home with my wife and the other kitten went home with her co-worker.
Due to some early medical issues, Gracie was mostly deaf. This made her a great companion for our two children during their loud and curious toddler days. We will always miss her ability to find exposed feet to rub against and her sweet and playful disposition. Rest in peace, dear feline friend.
