Orion has lived with his current human, a Chihuahua and a Great Dane since he was a kitten in a home just outside Helena in the woods. He's a good mouser who prefers to be outdoors in good weather but needs to stay warm and cozy indoors when it's raining, cold, or dark. Orion is in excellent health and affectionate when he wants to be - usually when you're about to feed him or in the middle of the night when he wants to snuggle at your back or between your legs. He tolerates being picked up but isn't thrilled with being hugged too often or for too long. He would do best in a home with an equally independent human who just wants to hang out with a cat. Orion's current owner is retiring next year and leaving the country. Orion has indicated he has no interest in getting a passport and learning a new language if he can find a loving home in Helena. He will come to you with a large hard-shelled carrier and smaller soft-shelled backpack, his bed, and a large supply of dry and wet cat food.
