Precious is the pet of the week at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS). She’s a 2-year-old, 6 pound, Grey Domestic Longhair cat.

Precious was transferred to RCHS from another animal shelter through the FOCAS program. She is fond of taking cat naps in laps, and following people around.

The $100 adoption fee for Precious includes medical exam, up to date vaccinations, spay, and microchip. To adopt Precious or sponsor a pet until its new family takes it home, call 760-753-6413, log on to, or visit RCHS at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. Kennels and cattery are open Wednesday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
