Gracie Update December 3rd at 8:25 PM EST

All, if you want to receive a Christmas Card from us, please scroll down and find the link on an earlier post.

Gracie’s Mom visited her this afternoon and Gracie was not too interested in eating. I went to visit her this evening and I feed her by hand, more like by finger. I stuck my finger in the wet food and then opened her mouth and put the food in. She was very, very good and ate 1/4 of a 3 oz can, which is the normal amount she usually eats at meal time. So, I was pleased and she seemed pleased. She is still very snotty and, like Miss Precious, when she bend over to eat…well, you get the picture. She gave me quite a few head butts, a purr or two, and a couple of mews. She seems confused by the whole ordeal. It is a very busy place and it sure doesn’t have the quiet of home.

Keep those purrs and prayers coming, I know she can feel the love, we all do.

  1. she only eats when her daddy is around? come on gracie, nom sweetie nom!

  2. Shawn says:

    Purrs and prayers on the way, from our house to yours!

  3. Poor little Gracie, missing her quiet home. I hope she’ll be there soon – sounds like she’s mending. I bet that being congested, she can’t smell her food so she is not as interested in it. I believe that happens with humans too.

  4. Purrs and PURRS!!! Would she have an easier time eating with her front legs (and food) propped up on a box so her poor nose doesn’t get all stuffed up?

  5. Hi Terry & Brian & company! I am relieved that Gracie ate when you went to see her….this has been quitte a day for us ‘cat’ people! Nylablue was a bit of a wildcat during her appointment…..let’s keep praying for our KITTEHZ…..they sure are troopers aren’t they???
    Come on Gracie you can beat this pneumonia!!!!
    Love from Sherri-Ellen & (poopin) Nylablue (see FB update) ;)

    We’re glad to hear Miss Gracie is eating as usual. Noms are very impawtant! We will keep praying for her and all of you to be well!

  7. Oh it breaks my heart to think of her there in all the chaos. I bet her brightest time is when you both visit. Poor, poor Gracie. We will continue to send our love and purrs till she’s home safe and sound.

  8. I guess Daddy has the magic touch, eh? There’s nothing like a beloved Human willing to hand feed the kitty! It probably *does* help her not to have to bend over much to get her noms! We are still madly purring and purraying for your Gracie and Brian and Precious and all the kitties. Sending them all lots of love–and Mom and Dad too. XOXOXO

  9. Sending purrs and lots of love your way!!!

  10. meowmeowmans says:

    That’s a great thought by our pals at Katnip Lounge. Do you think that could work?

    Purrs, prayers and much love to Gracie and you all!

  11. Sending our strongest Sibe Vibes for Gracie to improve more and for all the kitties to be doing better. Eating even a little is a good sign. All paws crossed.

  12. Cathy Keisha says:

    I am purring so hard for Gracie to make it. I’m also sending healing purrz to Brian and Precious. Poor Brian’s been taking meds for over a month now. Gracie must miss you as much as you miss her.

  13. Sue Brandes says:

    Sending more healing thoughts, prayers, purrs, and hugs.


  14. HotMBC says:

  15. Good one Gracie – GOOD ONE. Eat girl EAT – WE WANT YOU HOME FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!!

  16. Ann Staub says:

    Glad to hear she’s doing OK right now.

  17. Pat Hatt says:

    That is royalty, getting fed by finger haha glad she is doing good

  18. Good job getting the food in her. She probably can’t smell the food so doesn’t have and appetite. Still purring for all.

  19. Sparkle says:

    Oh, I will continue to purr for Gracie until she is back home and completely well again!

  20. Sending lots of purrs and gentle nuzzles…

  21. Glad to hear Gracie ate a little bit when her daddy visited. We’re purring she’s better very soon and back home where she belongs.

  22. Purrrrrrs are on their way plus we made something special for ya at our blog Wednesday.

  23. Aah finger-likin’ good. So glad she ate. We are praying and purring for Gracie to recover and return home where she can nap and rest in the peaceful setting of her by with her family.

  24. Debra Taylor says:

    I’m still praying for Gracie .. glad to learn you could get her to eat. I know the kind of heart break this brings to a household.

  25. TK says:

    Purr, purr, purr! We are thinking good thoughts.

  26. Still purring and praying for your sweet baby. I hope she can go home very soon.

  27. Cheysuli says:

    We are glad that she ate so much! YEAH! We are still purring hard that she gets so much better that she can get to her home and get all the loves she wants.

  28. We are glad she is trying to eat for you! We are still purring for her!

  29. Getting a little spoiled there, sweet girl! Being finger fed by your daddy. Sweet!

  30. Lily says:

    More prayers for Gracie’s lungs to continue to clear and her appetite to come back. Do they have her on an IV for addional nurishment? We had that with one of our dogs but I don’t know if all little furry ones would tolerate it. Just a thought.

    Lily, WA, USA along with our Gracie, too.

  31. Wishing you continued progress Gracie.
    Please get well.
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure,Tiger and JJ

  32. Sushi says:

    oh poor Gracie. sending purrs for her. hope she gets better everyday.

  33. We are here sending healing vibes and more POTP. We hope she turns a corner soon and can come home for some rest and recovery.
    Best wishes Molly

  34. haopee says:

    We heard Gracie wasn’t feeling so well. We just dropped by to send some positive healing energy down your way. Hopefully she recovers soon.

  35. Marg says:

    Sorry I bothered you with an email. So glad you got Gracie to eat something. That is how I got Splitters to eat, by using my finger to put it in her mouth and she actually started eating on her own so hopefully Gracie will. Wonder if you could just take her home for a little while but they probably have her on steady fluids. Sending many more purrs.

  36. Hilary says:

    What good news about Gracie eating her normal portion… She is so lucky to have such wonderful parents… I am sure that she is so scared… but having her mom and dad around to take such good care of her – she is one lucky girl. The purrs and prayers continue for you all… Sending lots of love!

  37. Everycat says:

    Gracie, that’s it, keep on eating and you will soon be home where you can have some peace and quiet. Me and The Ape are sending you and your whole family some more purrs and love. This is a rough old trot for you all to have to go through.

  38. Loved hearing this more positive news. Yay for the progress.

  39. Bless her precious heart! We are purraying so very hard for sweet Gracie! I am sure the vet is doing everything they can to make her better. Do you know if they have tried the nebulizer box on her? I used to use it on the shelter fosters who would come to me so very sickly. Just an idea… Get well soon, precious Gracie!

    Thanks so much for stopping by to wish Maggie May well for her appointment today. We hope to post a happy update this afternoon.

  40. Timmy Tomcat says:

    Eating is always a good sign. If she is noming as much as she normally does only slower we are happy along with you.
    We will keep our purr circle and Dad is praying that Gracie is home soon and ready to enjoy the fun of the season.
    Timmy, Dad and Family

  41. Fuzzy Tales says:

    We’re glad she ate a bit, at least for you. Continued purrs and purrayers to you all. Poor Gracie. Hugs and kitty kisses.

  42. Miss Kitty says:

    Better news each day about our Sweet Gracie. We know how it feels when we are congested, so it has to be harder for her. So glad you had the chance to visit her and feed her. She missed her Dad!! Continued visits from both parents will give her a feeling of security and calmness.
    We sure hope Dear Precious does better too! You have both been through a difficult ordeal with all your babies ill at the same time. I pray it will all be over soon and all are well. Continue to Pray as we will do the same our Dear Friends. Wishing you a day of Serenity and Contentment!!
    Loretta & Gang

  43. Selina says:

    Poor baby but it continues to sound positive. You’re the best Cat Daddy ever (next to my DadKatt of course). We’re sending more and more love!

    Selina & MomKatt

  44. More purrs are on their way to you all. We are so glad to read that Gracie ate some for you last night and hope she will continue this.
    Purrs and love on their way to you all.

  45. easy rider says:

    I can’t purr but I send a lot of barking power to you! You are in my thoughts and in my heart.

  46. Glad to hear :-) Will continue to send Golden Healing Prayers n Thoughts. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  47. We heard about Gracie last night during #BlogPawsChat. We are happy to hear she ate and we are sending lots of love and strength to Gracie and her whole family.

  48. William says:

    I’m glad she ate for the dad. We’re still purring for her (and all of you).

  49. CCL Wendy says:

    There you go! It took good ol’ Dad to get Gracie to eat because he knows how to do it. The extra bit of flavor from your finger makes all the difference. I know she is still very sick, but it sure sounds like Gracie is making some good progress.

    And yes, I can picture the ribbons of snot dripping from Gracie’s and Precious’ noses. Domino may not be sick, but she drools when she’s purring and it looks like the same thing. Wet, wet, wet!

    We’re still purring full strength here for all of your sick little ones. What a nightmare for you all!

  50. savannah says:

    Praise Ceiling Cat Gracie ate for her Dad. You still are getting my best purrs

  53. Hang in there, Gracie. We’re all purrrrrrring for you.

  54. Whisppy says:

    When the kids were very snotty recently, I fed them on an elevated platform which helped a lot. The kids are purring for Gracie to continue eating and continue getting better! And purring for Brian, Dolly, Sascha and Precious too!

  55. Penelope says:
