If you think you have a hard life, then you need to be grateful you didn’t have a hard life like many stray cats. Grace was found in Michigan, abandoned by her previous owners who had had her declawed and left her outside to fend for herself.

To make matters worse, her sight was poor, which made her coordination less than perfect. Then she was born with the condition cerebellar hypoplasia that causes her to strut around with a wavy lilt to her stride.

Fortunately now Grace is doing well and will likely live a long and happy life. The next time you think life is stacked against you, talk to Grace and she’ll remind you what hardship can really be.
