We adopted Gracie because her picture reminded us of our wonderful Morgan — gray, one-eyed and sadly homeless. They are nothing alike. Morgan can entertain herself (and anyone else) while Gracie needs someone to play with her (all the time!). One is healthy while the other had issues. One eats most things, the other drives me crazy.
They also do different weird things. Morgan had her ribbon which morphed into her blankie. Gracie however, has the washing machine.
This fascinates her for at least five minutes every time we wash a load. She bangs at the window while it twirls and spins. Makes her happy (or excited) and that makes us happy!
With Gracie around we are safe from marauding washing machines. Bless her!
