Gracie and Houdini  (Official Office Cats)

Gracie and Houdini are part of our office family. In the fall of 2009, Gracie and Houdini’s grandmother adopted Dr. Deyton. They would sit together on nice fall days outside the office, both pretending to work. Since then, the office has adopted, vaccinated, spayed, and found homes for 2 litters of 6 cats. We couldn’t part with the last two, Gracie and Houdini. They currently live in a heated condo just outside our back door, and they dine in a high-rise custom feeding station designed and built by Dr. Deyton.
