Introducing Daffodil!

Pleased to meet you!  Got any treats?
PATTY:  It's been three months since Bhu crossed the bridge and it was about time for us to see if any other kitties wanted to come live with us.  We decided we wanted to get a rescue this time with no age or special needs restrictions.  With two broken hearts still healing from missing Bhu, we could not bring ourselves to go to the shelters and see the kitties in person; it would have been just more heartache.  But I saw Daffodil in the online array of adoptable kitties at the Humane Society and she has such pretty eyes, I just thought she would be the one.  Sabryin agreed, although he had his heart set on a purry lap cat.

Daffodil is around 3 years old. She was first brought to the Humane Society in December 2013 as a stray.  In February 2014 she was adopted and it was probably at that time that she was declawed.  When her new family had to move in December 2016, she was again dumped at the Humane Society. 

We just got her yesterday and so far she is eating, drinking, using the litter box, and not hiding under the bed!  She is napping a lot and she is letting me pet her occasionally, but she doesn't purr.  Maybe someday she will purr for us.  She seems a little fat around the middle, maybe from being in a cage for three months.  She doesn't seem to want to play much (I'm not sure how play goes when kitties don't have claws) and she's not too athletic (although she has jumped up on the table, kitchen counter, and one of the beds). 

She seems to like me more than Sabryin; but that's the way it was with Bhu, too.  She rubs up against my legs when I'm in the kitchen . . . ALWAYS looking for treats! 

So, Daffodil, do you have anything to say?

DAFFY:  I'll let you know.  Fur now, just keep the treats comin'.

  4. Welcome to the cat blogosphere sweet Daffodil. ❤

  5. welcome Daffodil! You do have pretty eyes. WHen we brought Wizard home from the shelter, he made himself right at home. He slept on the bed between us the first night and every night till he got so sick. Kirby came from a rescue or SPCA group ad a baby. They said he was a cuddle kitty. That lasted about 6 months. He and Angel were very close till we brought Max home. Now I do not have any cuddle kitty. Angel was a stray off the street. She had been with us 9 years but it has only been the last 4 years that she started demanding loving.

    Give Daffodil time and she will be purring and wanting in your laps!

  6. Hi Daffodil! It's great to meet you. We can't wait to get to know you better. :)

  7. Nice to meet you Daffodil, you are a cutie.

  8. She is beautiful. I wish you many happy and healthy years with her. I miss having a furry companion so much but with all the ortho issues, and now the melanoma, it is best I do not. My best to you all, as always. Miss you.
