About her

Grace was the last kitten of Crystal, who was nearly 10 and a half years old when Grace was born: indeed a grace from God. The name Grace is also in hounor of Grace Gwedashe, the lady who for many years did the grooming for Stella Slabber and the foundation Cherie cattery.

The sad thing in Grace's life is that she problems as brood queen. So far she only produced four kittens. One of them is the stunning Cherie-Finesse Emily. Grace was diagnosed with open pyometra on 4 November 2013. She had to be sterilized.
