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.

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… Read more »

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.🌈💔

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.

My heart is broken hearin’ this sad news. But our loss is Heaven’s gain.

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.
