‘OUR LITTLE GRACIE’
My name is Wuwu but my new mum calls me Gracie. I was born with paralyzed hind legs, but it hasn’t stopped me from being one of the proud furry members at home.
I sleep and eat a lot at the moment as I’m still a kitten, but I also love chasing around with my big brother and sister at home. I have developed very strong arms so I can run very fast and climb up the stairs just like my siblings do.
I’m not able to control my pee/poop really well, so I need to wear a diaper at night and have my bladder expressed daily. Keeping a good hygiene is quite important to me to prevent urine scalding or other infections from developing.
I could be independent at times, but I prefer being around humans or other cats whenever I can. Sometimes I would run away if I was being approached too quickly, but when the humans give me pats I lean backwards and purr loudly to make sure they know that I love them. I don’t see myself as any different to other cats, and Happy Tails have given me a chance at a normal life.
After being diagnosed with bone marrow suppression, Gracie Wuwu’s health declined quickly and she crossed the rainbow bridge September 2022.
Thank you to her wonderful foster carers for their commitment to giving Gracie a special life. While short, her life was filled with love, care and commitment.
