I don't usually go no the cat board, although I love cats, and want one, but am ellergic. Any way, was listining to the radio while in the car, and heard about this cat named precious who lived through The tragic events of sept. 11. He was in there nineteen days!!!some minro eye injurys, and a little burnt on his feet, but he's going to live! I was so happy, and wanted to just grab him ( or her) up. Im starting to believe that cats have 9 lives. :-)

I just saw the CBS news report on Precious. He is a white Persian. Despite drinking contaminated water, he will be fine and has been reunited with his humans :) :) :)

Awww, I love white persians. I wish I could have seen this story about Precious, although I'm sure it'd make me cry forever. I'm so glad it has a happy ending!!!

I heard about Precious from my roommate but I didn't get the full story. Is his/her story on the 'net somewhere?

good question zippy-cat. I want to see it too!

An amazing story isn't it. I heard it on the local news last night and made hubby stay up later so I could see it. Precious looked really good for all he/she had been through and was remarkable mild mannered, even letting the reporter hold him/her :eek: I looks like Precious may have been shaved around her middle, but I can't tell for sure. Certainly a very lucky cat and family. :D

A friend just called me to tell me that she had seen the story on CNN. You may want to tune in to them since they sometimes repeat stories.

Another member found it and posted it under cat rescue!

Thanks, Feline!
