Precious Flower

Precious is 8 to 9 months old, 6 lbs. ( I am figuring 8 1/2 months, her birthday is going to be Dec. 15, 2005) and was coming into heat again. She is very healthy, very skinny. On the drive home (20 minutes) she bathed herself and then watched me drive. She is in the upstairs bathroom now. When I sit down she gets on my lap and purrs. She has piddled in the litter box......I can see that tail is going to be a problem, lol. She also, unlike Mittens, wants to come out! I have to be careful when I open the door.

Mittens went into extreme hiding when she saw me bring in the carrier, never mind there was another cat in there; I wasn't going to take her to the vet. I had to track her down, she was under the pillow, on our bed. Patches, well, she is surprising me. I brought her upstairs and cracked the door, they touched noses, Patches jumped sideways, make her little chirp and went downstairs. I think I haven't heard and seen the worst of it, though. The last time, when I brought Mittens home, she threw herself against the door, yowling. Of course, she has gotten numerous treats for her good manners. I put Mittens in front of the cracked door, she looked and left. Since then, Patches came up twice and scratched on the door.

I have more wormer for her and Revolution. Not much else to tell......oh, they named her Flower at the vets. I told them I had named her Precious Momma, but Flower sure fit her, so I decided to change it to Precious Flower. The vet is a young lady, absolutely wonderful. I am switching to their clinic! (They are building a new, huge building.) She told me if I catch the kittens I can bring them in immediately! Now that is nice. They all loved her so, said they would miss her. The one technician said she purred like crazy for her. She is a very friendly, loving, tiny girl. Patches and Mittens seem huge to me now, so solid and filled out. Of course, Mistrie knows nothing of the newcomer, yet.

    I hopes you catch the babies. I remember what it was like to be little and scared and loose your Momma. She is beautiful though.

    Hello Mittens. I hope you are doing well and enjoy your new friend.

    What a beautiful addition to your family! Could you try taking her (in the carrier, of course!) to the location where the kittens might be, then put out some food and wait to see what happens. Maybe they'd smell her or she'd call out to them.

    It's wonderful that you were able to help a kitty in need. All of our cats are rescued strays so I know how hard it is to NOT help. I hope you will be able to find the kittens soon too and find good homes for them.

    She looks like a very purry sweet kitty and is obviously happy with you and her new home. Precious Flower is a perfect name for her. And it sounds like you found a wonderful new vet.
