*** SAFE 6/30/17 *** A volunteer writes: It’s hard to resist going on and on about how gorgeous Precious is. But you can see that for yourselves; your question is, of course, is she nice? And the answer is, oh yes, she surely is. This poor girl was surrendered because her owner is ill. Her owner let us know that Precious is friendly and outgoing with family and strangers alike; she is gentle, playful, relaxed and affectionate. During intake, Precious solicited attention and affection, and responded by massaging her head against the counselor’s hand. She didn’t seem to mind being picked up at all, and staff were able to place her into a kennel with ease. However, she is still adjusting to these new surroundings, and is still a bit hesitant. Given enough time in a home with experienced and patient cat parents, she will bounce back to the lovely and sweet cat that she is.
