Rescue:

Darla was born on a very nice mixed farm, meaning that there is a variety of animals there. Cows, horses, chickens and goats. The farmer’s wife took good care of the cats by providing a warm area in the barn for them to find refuge in the cold weather, and plenty of food and water. Since most of them were spayed or neutered she was surprised to find a few little kittens wandering around. She reached out to Pet Patrol for help in rescuing these little ones as she wanted to ensure they were socialized and placed in family homes, rather than become a barn cat. Darla, being one of the kittens, was friendly and affectionate and it took no time at all for her to be adopted. She was adored by her owner, and she lived with her new person for only five or six months when the woman suddenly had a massive heart attack and died. Poor Darla. Homeless. A friend of the family took in this little calico, since none of the family members were able to, and she tried for five months to have her get along with her resident cat. It just wasn’t working. Darla did not want to share and eventually she came into our care once more.

Personality:

You would never know that Darla is a bossy sox kind of kitty. She is sweet and affectionate, cute as a button and petite in stature. She has a beautiful coat and was obviously well cared for. But she has little patience with other cats and would rather rule the roost and not share. She is playful and fun loving, very kitten like in chasing after toys and scampering up the kitty climber. She likes to watch the world from the window sill and is very observant of what goes on inside and outside her home. She is adorable and very good company for anyone wanting a loving cat. Darla is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.
