DAPHNE: SHE DIED, WAS REVIVED, SURVIVED AND IS NOW BLIND
"I'm just like you; I'm just looking for love." (5 month Orange Tabby)
When I was a young girl, I met a most extraordinary man from India. He told me that every living creature had a destiny. That even down to a tiny grain of rice it was predestined to be gobbled up or scattered to the wind. What he was really trying to tell me is that every living creature and every life has its own purpose. When Daphne's routine spay went terribly wrong, we were told Daphne had died. But something stirred the veterinarians and the staff. What started off as preparation for a farewell turned into a celebration of life!! But it was a bit bittersweet. Our young sweet Dappne is BLIND. We're saddened that Daphne won't see the changing of the seasons or the white fluffy clouds in the blue sky, but Daphne is Shamrock's "Miracle Baby."
Daphne's wonderful foster Mom has taught Daphne the map of the house. With great patience and love, Daphne has developed a sort of built in GPS. She loves the other dogs and cats and loves to be held and cuddled. My dear friend would say that Daphne's wonderful foster Mama was Daphne's "Vehicle of Karma." To get Daphne to her final destination...to where she is meant to be.
We know Daphne has no vision. Her hearing isn't so good, either. But to us, she is a vision of beauty and a lesson in love and grace. If you can see beyond what the eye beholds and into a most amazing heart, let us know. After all, Daphne is simply like the rest of us, She's just "looking," for love." - Namaste, Carmelita
*Daphne would thrive in a home with other furry, loving siblings. Someone to take her under their paw, kind of show her the ropes.
