I adopted Gracie from the L&C Humane Society 6 mos after I adopted My first cat. Gracie is very loving and loves to be petted. She has a bit of an attitude when she wants your attention, a little graze with her claws or a little nip. However I have never been deeply scratched or bitten leaving any marks! She is an indoor/outdoor cat and a predator, a good mouser and birder. I have received many gifts from her after thanking her , then disgarding their bodies.
