You’re never too old to love or be loved! Take, for example, Precious. In June of 2016, she was abandoned by her family and left to an uncertain fate at Devore Shelter. She was 11 years old then. The likelihood of a senior girl like her being adopted during the height of kitten season would have taken a miracle as older kittens tend to be passed over this time of year for younger, cuter kitties.
We wound up rescuing Precious for one of our rescue partners and, for the last three years, she’s been loved and well cared for. But when our rescue partner decided to close their doors, we became the safety net for beautiful, sweet Precious. We have found that this lovely old girl still has a lot of love in her heart and, despite all the upheaval in her life over the last three years, she’s still willing to trust, to love and give her whole self to people who show her kindness and care.
Even though she’s an older gal chronologically, you would never know it. She’s healthy, active and still very attuned to all that’s going on around her. She adores people and would make a great companion for an older person who, like Precious, also has a lot of love to give and life to live.
Precious was adopted March 6, 2019!
