5/26/1995 - 3/26/2013We wanted a companion for our cat, Nala so we answered an ad from a man who was selling kittens. She was about 6 weeks old and his kids had already named her Precious so we kept the name We were living in New York State when Precious came to us and two years later we moved to Alabama. A year after that we moved to Chicago then a few years later to FL. Precious rolled with all of the relocating even though she hated riding in the car. She even flew once. She was a big cat with an even bigger personality. She would always talk to us in a voice that was hard to describe. It sounded something like a baby crying, "WAH" but it wasn't annoying it was just Precious. In 2009 her companion, Nala passed away. For several weeks after, Precious roamed the house crying at night. She missed her friend. She made a couple of trips back and forth from IL to FL while our daughter was in graduate school. They became closer than ever. As Precious aged, she became diabetic, had signs of early kidney failure and high blood pressure. Our daughter, Melissa took care of all of her medical needs. Her quality of life was still good so we could justify the medications, the special diet, the many trips to the vet and the sub-cutaneous fluids. She was worth all of it and more. Last week it became apparent that her quality of life was rapidly declining and it was time to say good-bye. We miss her terribly and would do it all over again if we had to. She was a special member of our family who helped to get us through our many moves and changes in life. We love you Precious and will never forget you. We know you're free of your pain now and hope you know how much we loved you.Susan TiberioSt. Augustine, FloridaApril 3, 2013
