My Beloved Cat Precious

Posted May 13, 2015

My beloved cat precious, which was an American Shorthair breed, was so adorable that I wanted to take her everywhere with me. My family actually found her in our basement after a pregnant cat somehow managed to get into our home. When we found her, I vowed that I would do anything to make the kitten comfortable. Precious was very active when she grew use to me and her surroundings and she loved to play. She did require a lot of attention in the beginning, but that was expected from such a small kitten. However, as she began to mature, she was not as playful anymore and she spent most of her time in solitude. I feel that cats are not the best fit for people who wants an animal that they can always play with. Kittens are generally more playful, however when they grow older they begin to lounge around the house more and keep to themselves. On a positive note, you do not have to spend a lot of time grooming them because they are relatively clean animals because they groom themselves.
