You know how moms name their kids after relatives and movie stars and presidents and really cool people like that? Well, Liz, my foster mom, named me after my personality - ­ PRECIOUS! Because that is what I am ­ I. I am just precious! I am loving, I am friendly, I am a lot of fun to play with, and, I don't mean to brag, but I am also very pretty!! I am just a really good cat!  But I am in trouble right now. I have lived a hard life up until just a few days ago when Liz rescued me. I have been lonely for so long now and I was tired and scared and hungry. My eye was hurt very badly and I was so afraid I would end up having babies someday … and I did. I had 4 beautiful babies but, I am so sad, I am unable to nurse them because I just am not healthy enough right now. Luckily, Liz knows a wonderful lady who took my babies and will bottle feed them until they are old enough to eat on their own. I don't want them living such a sad life as I have lived and growing up alone and frightened like I have been ­ until Liz saved me ­ and now they won't. They will get everything they need.  Liz is collecting money so I can have eye surgery and so I can be spayed. I am so excited because then I won't be in pain any longer and I won't have to worry about more babies coming. I will be able to live a long and lovely life with a family that is out there looking for a cat just like me.   ­ I know this!! Won't you please help us find each other?  TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ME, PLEASE CONTACT MY FOSTER MOM, LIZ, AT vinciguerral@bellsouth.net.
