    Introducing my most recent Gracie. She is smart. In fact, she acts like she understands what we are talking to her about, because she constantly replies with a meow is a different sound. For instance, when she wakes me up, she does so with a "Mer-ow". when she replies to my caregivers conversations with her, she responds with sounds like " a short grunt to when she is begging for some pets she lays down in front of them and waits for some pets, and even rolls completely over so my caregiver gets her entire body. When she wants to look out the window from the floor, she sits up on her hind legs and looks up. Then when I head toward my kitchen, she is right there with me or comes up behind me and constantly says "Meow, meow, meow repeatedly just as though she is begging for some sort of food treat.

    When my Physical Therapist was here, she even rubbed his legs, then rubbed the soup can he was holding because it held her favorite word, "FOOD!"

    Temporary Disability

    I have a friend who was very pregnant and was given a lighter job in the ER typing up records. I thought that was admirable for our local medical center.
