Perhaps the most adored and spoiled cat ever.....Precious the Cat is now officially 19 years old!! She was acquired from a friend of daughter Amy when Amy was 10....hmmm...wonder how old that makes Amy??? We got to bring her home in October of that year, when Precious was 8 weeks old......and she has been a prominent family member ever since!! As some of you know, Precious had a health issue in October of last year, and it was pretty tense for awhile. But, she has fully recovered from her little stroke-like episode, and continues to enjoy every day, spoiled as ever!! She is definitely the Cat Queen of our Castle!! She still goes up and down the stairs, and often acts like you would expect a much younger cat to act. We hope that she will be with us for many more years!! Happy Birthday, Precious!! I tried to take some pictures of her today in a birthday hat....but she wasn't too happy with me!! So...the pictures posted here will have to do as her birthday celebration shots!!
