Happy Birthday Daphne


Happy Birthday To Daphne
Somehow, inexplicably, my lovely green-eyed tabby is now the senior lady of Purrchance To Dream.  Her litter-mate Chloe passed away last April, so this is the first birthday that Daphne has ever gone solo, and now with Spooker's recent passing, this puts Daphne as the matriarch of our clan.  I don't think this is a role either her or I ever imagined her in, but she is handling it with her typical stoicism and grace.  I know she still misses her sister Chloe, but in the past year, Bella has stepped forward more and more into that role.  Sometimes her shadowing Daphne enters into stalkerville, even, and Daphne gets a bit frustrated by Bella's clingingness.  I mean, can't a tabby lady go to the loo by herself? is the look Daphne, emerging from the litterbox, will often give a patiently waiting Daphne.  And I do not believe Daphne has eaten kibble alone in the past year either, Bella is consistently at her side when she eats.  It's a good relationship, however, and it does make me smile to know Daphne's not alone.
All of us at Purrchance To Dream wish our lovely Daphne a very Happy Birthday!  May there be many more, we love you!
