After losing the only -- and what she thought would be forever -- home, family, and cat-friend
she had ever known, she was abandoned in an unfamiliar shelter environment, alone, with unfamiliar people, smells, and
sounds; then traveling to yet another unfamiliar place, Daphne was understandably very fearful, confused and depressed from
all that she lost and that happened to her. At first, when she first arrived to us, she didn't eat, drink, play or seem interested
in anything, developing a URI along with digestive issues. She was also terribly matted and is still in need of extensive
dental care from neglect. Daphne does have a few age-related issues but, who doesn't? She is a fragile, sweet
cat who only wants love, companionship and a forever home and family.
Now, after many months, good veterinary care, and much TLC in our foster care program, she is learning
to trust again, has a soft, warm bed, and is on the road to complete physical, emotional and mental health. Daphne
also receives a daily TTouch session which has been instrumental in helping her to cope with her new situation and to dispel the fears and loss she has
experienced, along with maintaining her health and well-being.
Daphne is a resident of our Foster Sanctuary Program. Your support continues to provide need care for Daphne and other special animals like her. You can be
