Precious Flower

CalicoMom Toni found Precious Flower in the woods about a mile from the house in late August 2006. Apparently she was dumped because she was pregnant or had just had her kittens. She was starving, but the two kittens appeared healthy. The kittens disappeared after Toni captured Precious. There are other houses in the vicinity and hopefully the kittens found a home in one or two of them. Precious spent a few days in the shed until she could be checked out by a vet and Toni could be sure that she wouldn't be bringing in any parasites or diseases into the house. When she was cleared, she moved right in and made herself at home. Since then she has spent a lot of time trying to get Patches to play with her.

Precious Flower wants to play with Patches,
But Patches only wants to play in snatches.
Precious plans to pounce;
Patches threatens to trounce.
Precious waits until a new plan hatches.
