Facts about Precious

  • Breed: Ragdoll
  • Color: Cream Or Ivory (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Long
Precious: 4 - 5 yr old female, Lilac Point Ragdoll

Precious showed up in a shelter, stressed and badly matted. The shelter chose a good name for her. They shaved her there to make her more comfortable. She was part of a UC Davis study, on kitty colds I think, and she was there for over seven weeks. She did not eat well and became very thin. We got her as soon as we could after the study was over and immediately worked on finding out what foods she would eat. She liked smelly fish. We gave her a teepee which she loved and stayed in.

She was depressed and low energy when she arrived, but she still seemed pleased to receive attention. Wanting to encourage your affections, she will rub you back, and put her head in your hand soliciting more. Now that she has settled into her foster home, she is doing very well. She is gaining weight and seems entirely healthy.

Precious will gain more weight as time passes; she is still a little thin. But even with her unevenly shaved coat you can see what a beauty she is. There is something very elegant about the way she moves. I hope you can see from the photos of her walking how graceful she is. She has long legs and seems to walk on her tip toes. Her long body curves sinuously. Her unshaved tail is a marvelous plume and gives a clue to how magnificent her coat will be. She arches her back frequently as she rubs against your knee and raises up to push her head into your petting hand. She has the ragdoll’s intense round blue eyes.

If you are looking for a delicate, elegant friend who wants your lap, and probably, your bed, one who is so grateful for your love, she is the kitty for you. It is hard to imagine how anyone let her go into a shelter. Precious is well named. She is a treasure. She needs a safe, secure, solid home. Other friendly cats and teen age kids are probably fine with her. I don’t know about dogs.

She will be a wonderful companion for some lucky person.

She eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.

Her foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz. Contact Harriet at (831) 336-2983 or if you have questions, or send an Adoption Application. If you are unable to reach Harriet by phone or email, email us at

About Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of purebred and other exceptional cats.

Our mission is to educate pet owners, breeders, and shelters about our breeds, and to place our cats with Forever Families who will give them the proper care and love they deserve. We carefully match cats with their Forever Families by evaluating each cat's personality, temperament, and special needs. Then we determine the best fit for both the cat and the new family. Please note that we do NOT ship cats.

Our adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise noted. This fee allows us to provide excellent vet care for the cats that really need it. The healthy kitties make it possible for the sick ones to be saved.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our cats are neutered or spayed, vaccinated and FELV/FIV negative. We are not a shelter. All of our cats are fostered in private homes. We ask that anyone wanting to meet one of our cats first fill out our online application. These cats are treated like members of our family, and we want to ensure that you will do the same.

When you adopt from Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue, you are saving TWO lives - the cat you adopt and the cat who gets to take its place in Rescue!

Our Adoption Process...

First, call the name of the foster mother if you are interested in an individual cat. Once you've chatted, she will ask you to fill out our easy online application. Just "Click to submit"! Next, one of our wonderful volunteers will quickly contact your veterinary and personal references. Then they will give you a call to chat and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the adoption process. Once approved we will help you set up a time to come and meet the kitty or kitties you want. If it's a good match all around you will be asked to sign a contract and pay the adoption fee and you can take the kitty home that very day.

Our adoption fee is $175. That includes the kitty, spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, tested for FIV/FELV.

We do not ship pets, however, you are welcome to put in an application and once approved make plans to come out and meet the kitty and fly it back with you.
