Check out this adorable video of Orlando!
Orlando has now graduated from foster care, finishing school!
Orlando enjoys human interaction – he loves cuddles, laps, pats. We are still working on his being held – he can be picked up and moved, but he is still not comfortable with being held. He loves nothing more than to curl up and snooze in his carer’s lap.
Orlando loves human interaction so much; he has a couple of funny traits:
In the morning, as he does not know which he wants more, his breakfast or some pats and head bumps, he runs between the two – a bite to eat and then he runs, rubs against his carer’s legs and then back to the bowl for another bite.
As his carer goes up the stairs he will flop down on every tread, in front of her, to ensure he gets a pat on each one.
He will flop on the floor and roll, right in his carer’s pathway, to ensure he gets her attention and gets a touch (even if it is simply a gentle push to move him out of the way!)
Orlando is still a little shy with strangers, however, give him a little space and the rattle of the treat bag and it takes all of 3 minutes before he will venture out to say hello.
Orlando is a friendly, playful cat, who gets along with the other cats in his foster carer’s home. We do believe he has probably lived on his own in the past and had to make his own fun, as he is happy to play alone with his toys. Although we feel he will be best suited to life with another friendly cat, the cat will need to be confident, as Orlando plays enthusiastically and fast.
The ideal home for Orlando will be with an experienced cat person, who will understand how to further develop his confidence. It will be an adult only home or with a teenaged family. Orlando would love it if his people were home a lot of the time.
Orlando is such a smoochy boy; he just needs a smoochy family. Is that you?
This is just the beginning for Orlando, as he still has a road to travel yet. He is still shy with strangers, although, he will now stand his ground and will not automatically hide under the bed. He does not tolerate loud noises and sudden movements, but we know he will adjust to this over time.
The ideal home for Orlando will be with a well experienced cat person, who will understand how to further develop his confidence. It will be an adult only home or with a teenaged family. Patience, understanding and love will be required to continue this beautiful boy’s development.
Orlando has already repaid his foster carer with bucket loads of love and he will repay his adopter manyfold, during the years ahead.
Are you the special person or family Orlando needs?
