Daphne is a sweet, petite, and demure young lady, a beautiful gray tabby with a white muzzle and chin. This darling girl was found abandoned in a Palo Alto neighborhood, where she had joined up with a few unowned, outdoor cats who were being fed and watched over by volunteers. She has such a loving disposition, that we can't imagine how she ended up on the street scared and alone, but once taken into foster care, she has thrived. After living outside for months, she thought the fluffy fleece bed we gave her was a miracle, and she didn't want to leave it for the first three days lest it disappear!
Daphne loves to greet you when you arrive with big purrs and figure 8s around your legs. She loves to cuddle and warm your lap, and pouncing on a dangling feather toy is great fun. But Daphne is also perfectly happy just hanging out with you, picking a perch or seat where she can keep an eye on you (and your computer, which does such interesting things). If you work at home, she'll be good company, but she'll never be a bother.
This well-behaved young lady has a gentle disposition, and she has never bared her claws or teeth. But Daphne has one very funny habit: the only time she hisses is to express disapproval. For example: put her in a carrier or cage and you might hear one little hiss, just to let you know that this is not her favorite place. Or use an impolite word (like the ones her fostermom let slip upon dropping a laptop) and Daphne told her "that language is rude" with one emphatic hiss!
The Fine Print — While Community Cat Rescue would love to make our adoptable cats and kittens available to everyone, everywhere, we must limit our adoption service area to San Francisco Peninsula cities and towns. We simply do not have the volunteer-power or financial resources to make home visits (required for all adoptions), delivery of adopted cats/kittens and follow-up visits outside the Peninsula. An occasional, rare exception might be made, but it is not the rule.
