My father-in-law had planned to come to our house for Thanksgiving but ended up in the hospital on Wednesday. Fortunately, it wasn’t too serious and he was released on Friday. Rose thought it would be a good idea to go see him so we packed some Thanksgiving leftovers and drove to the other coast.
We stopped to see him before going to our hotel in Melbourne. While Rose was outside talking to her dad, I went inside to see the cat.
Her name is Precious and she is a very friendly ginger girl. She was happy to have me pet her while she purred and rubbed her face on my hand. I felt guilty leaving her but I didn’t want to be antisocial.
If anything happens to Rose’s Dad or if it becomes too difficult for him to take care of her, she will become our cat. Of course, we don’t need four cats but I’m happy she is a friendly girl.
Precious is a beautiful ginger girl……hope Rose’s Dad is out of the hospital soon – I bet Precious misses her “Dad” ! Nice that you all will take care of her should that become necessary.
Thanks, Pam. He was out and doing pretty well when we went to see him.
We all hope it won’t be necessary, but I wonder if she even likes other cats?
I hope she likes other cats. It might be good for our boys to have a girl in the house.
Would be new for them.
Yes, it has been nine years since we had a girl cat.
I really hope Rose’s dad is on the mend soon.
And … I’m imagining Precious teaming up with your gang and driving you all to distraction!
I don’t want to think about that now. 🙂
that is very nice to be there for Precious… all the best to the dad of Rose….
Thanks so much.
You were here in Melbourne???? It would have been cool to meet.
Oh, yes. I forgot you are near there.
Precious is a beauty. I could see her cuddling up to Chris… I hope your father-in-law does well.
He’s back in the hospital. I hope whatever the problem is, it is temporary.
I’m sorry to hear that. I hope it is temporary. You might be taking care of Precious sooner rather than later.
Let’s hope not.
Precious lives up to her name.
I’m glad that your FIL is doing better now…and that you have agreed to take Precious. But let’s hope that won’t happen for quite awhile.
I hope it will be a very long while.
She sure looks like a precious Precious!
That must be how she got the name.
I hope your father-in-law feels better soon. His kitty is adorable.
she is darling! So thoughtful of you to go see Rose’s Dad. Praying he will be ok.
She looks so sweet. Glad your father-in-law is doing better.
She’s a cute one.
