Have you met Grace?  
Grace is the feline daughter of Andrea Lapp.  The cat needs another operation and even though the Humane Society is going to pay for half it is still costing $1200, on short notice too. Online fundraising seemed like an idea to help ease the fiancial squeeze. All money raised will go to Grace's operation.

Grace's Story
Humane Society volunteers who delivered food to a feral cat colony were the first to meet her; the mini white and gray calico sat in the corner too thin for her size while the rest of the colony choked down free grub.  When a veterinarian examined Grace it was discovered she was born with a cleft palette and had a hole in the roof of her mouth.  The Humane Society of Toronto drew their resources together and flew in a special surgical patch for the cat’s mouth so she could eat again. They just needed someone to monitor her medication and give her love and affection through out the entire process ( two surgeries and a year's worth of steroids.) Andrea answered the add for fostering Grace. The fees for prescriptions and all medical bills were covered. Once healthy she’d be put up for adoption. After falling in love with the fur ball Andrea adopted Grace to be her very own. Sadly not even a year later Grace's cleft palette has left her the skin on the roof of her mouth very sensitive and she has developed another small hole that is in need of surgical repair. If she can't have the procedure we're not sure what will have to happen.  :(

Just Who IS Grace
She’s a cat. She enjoys clicking after flies and clumsily jumping to the mantel to inadvertently knock down any vase or photo frame you ever loved.  If she's feeling her emotinal needs haven't been met she'll sing in the hallway till someone meets her, and on the rare more upsetting occasions use a closet as her litter box. For the most part she keeps busy by meticously cleaning herself on the couch, purring for her green treats, and pawing at strings (she's partial to the silky variety.) She likes to sleep right beside her Mom, or during the warmer months on the patio in the sun. Meow.
