Our super star 'cat care team leader' Jacky has been working with Orion for some time now... 229 days to be exact! 🙀 She worked her magic on this handsome boy (with the most adorable lil' mittens 🐾) and transformed him from grumpy cat to the purr-fect kittizen!
Orion was surrendered to the RSPCA from a house overcrowded with cats (7 cats in total) 😱 Unfortunately they had not been well socialised. Orion was very scared, and a difficult case 😿 He would allow us to quietly sit and pat him... but panicked when picked up (but he's a good boy and never tried to bite us).
Orion was moved to a quiet area in an aviary, where he had more space and we continued to work with him, building his confidence and trust 💕 This all happened over a period of SIX WHOLE MONTHS... Then finally, a break through! He would venture out of his pen while we were cleaning and show more interest in his surroundings 🎉
We introduced him to other cats who shared his pen, and Orion was very accepting of them. We are now able to pick him up for a cuddle, but we have to take it slowly, especially with strangers. Once you get to know you this lovely 2 year old boy, you'll see how much he deserves a loving home.
