Golden-eyed Gracie is a lovely little black kitty with a white diamond on her chest and a purr that serenades you like your favorite song.

Life hasn’t always been easy for 10-year-old Gracie - she came to the shelter in critical condition and showed signs of being in kidney failure Recently, however, she has been getting a spring in her step, and with that extra pep, her loving and snuggly side has returned in abundance.

The staff at the SPCA of Hancock County are currently having her re-evaluated by a vet to see if the diagnosis remains the same; as is, we are happy to consider either adopters or “fospice” (foster “hospice” homes) for this cuddly girl.

Gracie loves laps and snuggles and would be fine with older, respectful children. She likes other cats, and would likely be fine with a dog that mostly ignores her. We all hope this sweetie can rest up and warm someone’s lap during the coming cold weather.

Make an appointment to meet sweet and loving Gracie!  Then, take her home as a new forever friend.

The SPCA of Hancock County serves EllsworthMount Desert Island and beyond, and is still operating by appointment only for the safety of the animals, as well as visitors and staff. If you are looking to adopt, please check their website where they have an adoption application and the available animals listed. For general inquiries, please call them at 207-667-8088, email, or send them a Facebook message. The shelter is located on Route 3 in Trenton.

The General Stores Of Downeast Maine

These are the long-time general stores that are spread throughout downeast Maine. The stores that your grandparents picked up milk, beer, and that night's dinner at. For years they had been filled with things like fly paper, clothes, beef jerky, and that morning's newspaper. Now, you stop by for that slice of breakfast pizza, a tasty fried chicken sandwich for lunch, gas,and a handful of lottery tickets.

They're an important part of Maine's heritage, and their numbers are starting to dwindle. But we still frequent them to pick up the day's necessities and to keep up on town gossip.

They may not be owned by the original owners, and they may not look the same as they did years and years ago. But that same hometown feeling is there, the minute you set foot on their wooden floors. More than likely the same wooden floors that your grandparents set foot on.
