Meet Orchid and Sunflower! These two unfortunately came from a hoarding situation where they didn’t have human socializing. The two of them have come a long way from when they first arrived into our care. They both are very comfortable taking treats but still have some ways to go with being comfortable with petting. Orchid is much more outgoing than Sunflower. She has started to enjoy petting and attention. Sunflower really relies on Orchid to feel comfortable with humans around.
Orchid and Sunflower will continue to need behaviour support in their new home. A quiet adult home without any other animals, and lots of patience is what will be best for these two. While we are hopeful to find an experienced cat owner for this pair, we will definitely provide our support and our tips and instructions on building the trust Orchid and Sunflower need to become the best feline companions they can be!
