Precious is a dilute calico, with pretty patches of buff and gray and a gray tail and very pale yellow eyes. We estimate that Precious is about 9 years old (as of 1/09).

Precious is a quieter girl. She absolutely adores other felines and readily makes friends with new cats in her suite. She likes people, too, but is inclined to be timid around them, especially at first. Once she gets to know a person, however, she is very purry and affectionate with them.

If you are looking for a beautiful girl to join your quiet, multi-cat household, please come in to visit Precious.

Update: Precious was recently diagnosed with intestinal lymphoma. She is currently on a course of chemotherapy and steroids, a combination that we have seen miraculous results with before at Tabby’s Place. Precious has been tolerating her treatments well and has even put on a little bit of weight, which we were happy to see. Her prognosis at this point is uncertain, but we are doing our best to help Precious stay comfortable and are hoping she can pull through this.
