  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 33170883

Say hello to Ocho! This big handsome boy came to us when his previous people were moving and couldn't take him with. Ocho can be a chatty boy and while he does enjoy petting he's a 'diva' type of cat: he'll let you know very quickly and in no uncertain terms when he's had enough petting. He'll ask for pets with nice head bumps, but he's easily overstimulated and seems to be more sensitive about being pet down his back and on his rump. Ocho will do best with cat people who know and love the diva type, and in a home without any young children. Stop by today and see if Ocho is the one for you!
