Sister Saturday: Remembering Sister Precious

      101 Comments on Sister Saturday: Remembering Sister Precious

SISTER PRECIOUS Forever [L]Hello everyone, Dad Terry here, again, on a sad Sister Saturday. On Tuesday, September 11th I helped dear Precious with her journey to the Rainbow Bridge.  Her journey was a peaceful one and it was one she was ready for, she told me.  She was doing really good, then she wasn’t.

Since we adopted Sister Precious in 2011 I have spent every evening with her in her treasured upstairs suite.  I sure will miss our time together and I’m sure I’ll be quite lost in the evenings for a while.  Sister Precious loved me with all her heart and the feeling was mutual.  Monday things were not going well and she lost her ability to walk and could not sit up well enough to eat.  Things pretty much went downhill from there.

I’m so glad she got to enjoy her new snail scratcher for a little while and I’ll be forever thankful that she accepted me and her Mom as her own.  True, she didn’t like other kitties, but she was a total love bug with us.  Thank you dear Precious for allowing us to share your life, for making evenings special and for the purrs and smiles you shared.  We will love you and remember you forever dear girl.

All our love, Dad, Mom, Brian, Zoe, Dolly, Simon and Seal.

Thanks to Ann from Zoolatry for the beautiful memorial graphic.

    Godspeed to you Precious, our Brian’s home gal pal, a little bit tuxie, a little bit calico, a whole lotta gorgeous, a lot like gram paw Dude. When we think of football, we will think
    of you, when we think of living large and in charge on a cat’s own terms, we will think of you,
    when we think of our secret, we will say thanx to your dad that he never shared. The only
    gate you’ll look out of now is heaven’s but this time all will be good. We will miss you, we
    will always love you and now we wanna just go cry. We are truly sorry and send hugs and loves to you, dad, mom and the family you leave behind. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  9. The OP Pack

    We were so very surprised and saddened to see the news this morning on the POTP blog. After Sister Precious’s post last week about her new scratching post, we thought she was holding her own. The Rainbow Bridge has been far too much enriched by the welcoming of all of your Angels. Too much, too soon. You were so good to spend all that time with her, Terry. Your reward will be great one day for all the good that you do, but right now it must be so hard. Soft woos and gentle hugs from all of us to all of you.

    Hugs and Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber and Mom Kathie too

  10. Grrreta and Fam

    We are so sorry for your lost. We are so happy that she was with such a loving family. We all here hope that you and the rest of the family are doing better during this sad time. Sending purrs and hugs to all of you.

  12. Erin the Cat, Princess

    Oh my, you have my deepest sympathy for your loss of one so very dear to you all. She had the best of times with you, and that and the love you shared surely is the best thing the world and nature can give us.
    Fly free and be once more whole and well, Sister precious……

  13. Diane

    This was both sad and beautiful to read. I know Her passing was not unexpected, but still so sad. I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since she took up residence in the penthouse. After losing her first human mom, it’s wonderful she found another loving human to share the remainder of her long life with.🌈💔

  14. Little Binky and Granny

    Oh no, another purrecious Kitty so shortly after each other, Brian :'( So deeply sorry your purrecious Precious had to go to the bridge to meet her other Angel-sisters again. We have no words, it’s to sad *wipes tears*. Soft Pawkisses to comfort all of you <3 Fly Free beautiful Soul <3 <3 <3

  17. Annie

    I’m so deeply sorry. Precious was indeed precious. I can only imagine how much you will miss your sweet girl in the evenings. She loved her cardboard scratchers. I’m glad she enjoyed her new snail scratcher too. You were the very best family for her, letting her have her own room and making sure she very happy and loved, definitely loved.

    How my, we are all devastated and heartbroken, losing yet another friend. It seems surreal. We know you did what was best for her. It was too bad that you could never integrated Sister Precious into the household with her furblings, but she was dearly loved and she knew it. No creature can ask for more. Rest In Peace Precious. We will see you again on the other side. We all (including Mom) send our sympathies and condolences.

    This is my first chance to sit down and write, and not break down in floods of tears.

    Terry and family you know how much your little lady meant to us here at Dash Kitten. Our gratitude for your taking Precious in knows no bounds. She had no hope, then she had you. I cannot thank you enough for being there when she needed someone.

    My heart is broken hearin’ this sad news. But our loss is Heaven’s gain. Sister Precious is up there right now, chasing butterflies through the great heavenly nip fields with my brother, Nissy, I bet. And every now and then she’ll stop chasin’ those butterflies to look down upon you, her family, and smile as she remembers how much love you shared. Love and purrs always, Seville.

      What a precious sister she was too! Not all of us want to be around other kitties but mom and dad are special to us. I see this just as Precious did. She was obviously my type of girl but I’d never show it. Precious, you did great but it was your time to leave and you knew it. One day I will meet you and we’ll play together. Say “hi” to Kali for me, Precious.

    I am sure that Sister Precious luved her life with you. I’m sure you made her time on Earth special for her. You gave her everything a kitty would want–shelter, food, care and love. It is sad that her time had to end, but what time you did have together, I am sure meant the world to her. Luvs and hugs for you and your family.

  44. Trees And More

  46. Jeanna

    She certainly left an impression because I am tearing up and feeling your sadness. She was the upstairs queen and saved all her love for you and mom I bet. She’s lucky to have had your special care with new toys and loving attention to the end.

  47. Cleo

    Oh dear, I just learned of this. I’m so sorry to hear of sweet Sister Precious’s passing. Mom, dad and I will say our prayers for you at this very sad time.

  49. Jodi Stone

    I’m so sorry to hear this. Losing our precious pets is the hardest thing. I remember after we helped our Roxanne to the bridge, that feeling of emptiness and change in routine. Hugs to you and the family.

  50. Timmy Tomcat

    We just heard this sad news. We are so sorry for this loss and know you loved her with all your heart. Little girls sure can snuggle deep into your heart. Dear Sister Precious please watch over us until we all meet again.
