About Me

Active within 2454 Days

Hi! My name is Darla Annette Batten

I am Domestic Shorthair from Tallahassee, FL

Nicknames: Darla Jean

Age: 13 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: She's very good at climbing and jumping. She can hug a small tree and scurry right up it in no time flat!

My favorite tricks and treats are: She's a jumper and loves to leap high in the air when playing. and She's not into treats. Maybe a taste of your cheese or a lick of whipped cream.

Where I hang out: Top of the Jungle gym. Sleeping in Daddy's chair.

My favorite grubs: Just about anything! Likes to taste people food, but prefers canned cat food.

My pet peeves: Don't like to be held for more than a minute. Don't even think about clipping those claws!

What I love about my owners: She doesn't try to hold me long and always the way I like to be held. She lets me out side for fresh air and sunshine. She doesn't scold me when I come home from my adventure, she just hugs me and tells me not to scare her like that any more.

My cat hobbies: Chase and play with lizards!Climb the fense, disappear on Mommy and go on adventures. Fortunately, she always returns home in a couple of hours.

Pet motto: Torties can jump!

How We Met

We were visiting the shelter one day looking for kittens. Our eldest cat had passed away recently and Henley hated being the only cat. We were looking at a silver tabby and Darla stuck her paw out and grabbed my husband. I hadn't seen a blue tortie and she was a sweet little thing. We took her to the social room and played with her a bit. I knew right away that she was the playmate for Henley. She wasn't afraid to try anything. She had and was still terribly sick, so being well known volunteers at the shelter, we were able to take her home that evening so we could get her to the vets in the morning. Her URI was sever, but we decided we would do whatever it took to get her through it. Even with all the meds, visits to the Dr. and being kept in solitare, she never slowed down or acted ill by any means. When she was well enough to meet her older brother, he gave her a hard time, but she just kept at him until he too fell in love with her.

You're on Darla! I've chased dogs as big as a golden retriever and it makes everyone laugh- especially at the dogs as they run away! I chase deer, too. I don't know what I'd do if I caught one, but we'd eat for weeks!-Percy
