Hi! I’m Orchid. I’m a tad spicy and a bit of a diva!

I love getting my head rubbed. When I want attention, I will come up and rub against you. I enjoy play time, but my foster mom hasn’t found the perfect toy for me yet. I do enjoy the string toy, and I have been known to rip up cardboard and paper towels if they are accessible.  I also like Cat TV (aka windows).

I’m not a fan of getting my claws trimmed, but they feel so much better once they are shorter. I can be chatty if I am left alone in a room for too long.  

One thing you should know:  I want to be an only cat.  I’m not fond of my roommates, the dog and resident cats. I would be ok with older children. Since I am so spicy, I have pawed my mom when I wasn't getting my way. I promise, I’m really good about not pulling out my claws, though.

I hope to find my furever family that enjoys my spiciness and where I am the center of attention!
