Ophelia is a darling and petite young tortie (tortoiseshell coloring), with a medium-length, low-shed coat. Her full, fluffy tail and gorgeous red hues resemble a little fox. She loves people, and will purr just at the sight of you. Rub her head and you’ll have a friend for life. She’ll curl up in your lap, rub noses with you, and even lay on your chest. Still very playful, she loves to chase tin-foil balls, milk jug caps, laser pointers,= or just about anything you throw or wiggle for her. Ophelia likes to explore small nooks and crannies, and finds the extra challenge of playing between chair rungs or stair balusters particularly fun. At this time Ophelia seems to be terrified of other cats and will do best as an only cat. Quiet and easy going, she would do well with older children.
