Facts about Precious

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 5571154-Cow-C-Precious
  • Hair: Short

This little sweetie is Precious, a Tortie with a beautiful split face. She seems very delicate because she's tiny at under 6lbs, but she's actually very curious, brave and playful. She doesn't like to be held, but is otherwise quite affectionate, especially in the morning, when she will also verbalize her love for you. 

Precious was rescued along with her kittens from under a ramp at a dentists office. She was very skinny, but loyally protecting her babies. All of the kittens have found good homes and now it's mommy's turn. 

Precious is a very good girl with her biggest annoyance being her tendency to run out the door since she was used to being outdoors prior to her rescue. She stays close to home, but definitely needs a safe area around the home free of loose dogs. She Always comes inside at dark automatically knowing her curfew.  A kitty door would make her very happy. Because her foster home has been child free, she shouldn't be placed in a home with smaller children, but others who won't try to pick her up against her will would be fine. She's very used to curious, non-aggressive dogs and tho she doesn't play with them, she tolerates them quite well. 

Born around August 2012, Precious has been spayed, vaccinated and as with all of our cats, is FIV and FeLV negative. 

If you would like more information about this little darling, please call 662-342-9448, email or submit a pre-adoption application here: and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. Our adoption fee is $75 for cats and kittens. 


About Desoto Animal Rescue Society

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of unwanted, abandoned, and abused pets, giving them a second chance at a loving forever home. All animals taken in receive necessary medical care, vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

We are not a shelter with a facility where you can visit our pets. All rescued pets live in our own homes, where they are evaluated and cared for until they find their ideal adoptive family. We carefully screen prospective homes and require all applicants to go through an adoption application process.

We are not affiliated with the Desoto County Animal Shelter or any governmental agency. We do not receive any taxpayer funds. We operate solely on donations and the revenue we generate from fundraising events. 100% of our incoming funds go directly towards the care of our animals and to pay our vet bills. All other expenses are paid for by our own volunteers.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

We've made it very easy for you to donate one time, set up a recurring payment/sponsorship or do a tribute for someone. Everything is on our website here:

Our Adoption Process...

All pets are up-to-date on routine vaccinations and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. All dogs are tested heartworm negative and all cats are tested feline aids/feline leukemia negative. We require a pre-adoption application and a home visit. To help cover our veterinary costs, we ask for a $125 adoption donation for dogs and puppies and a $75 adoption donation for cats and kittens.
