In honor of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month
, we'll be introducing you to an adult furball looking for a place to live out its golden years throughout November. Today, we'd like you to meet Precious, a sweet kitty who enjoys watching the world from a windowsill.
If you look closely, you'll see what's so special about this pretty girl. She has striking markings and eyes that are two different colors. Precious is laid back and loves attention from people and other cats. She doesn't require a lot – a belly rub and a comfy windowsill where she can watch birds are just about all she wants in life.
Like so many adult pets these days, 10-year-old Precious was given up to the Kentucky Humane Society
by owners who could no longer care for her.
"Precious has been with us since early August, and she's getting very lonely for a home," says spokeswoman Beth Haendiges. "She stays in the offices with the adoption counselors at the main campus, and she appears to enjoy hanging out with them. But she knows they aren't really her forever family. Precious needs a home."
If you think Precious is the friend for you, contact the Kentucky Humane Society at (502)366-3355 for more information. Because she is a senior, her adoption fee is just $30 this month.

Adopting a pet is an amazing experience – and a big decision! Before bringing a pet into your home it's important to consider your family circumstances and do your research on breeds.
