"Look no further, because this beautiful brown tabby is the one! At not even a year old yet, Ophelia is a big kitten who wants a home where she can get some energy out. Ophelia would thrive with the right person that can provide her with lots of mental and physical enrichment."

Rediker says that not only is she pretty to look at, loves to snuggle, and is bound to make you chuckle with her silly antics, but Ophelia is also actually really great to have around to help keep your pest control in check.

"She’s an extremely intelligent girl with a high prey drive. This means that she could make an excellent mouser for your home, but it also means she is easily bored and could choose inappropriate toys to play with, like your hands and feet. Because of this, her new home should be with adults only."

"There is no other cat on the planet as food motivated as Ophelia, so providing enrichment for her is quite simple. She’s even learned a few tricks for a yummy reward or two!"

"Ophelia loves other cats, sometimes a little too much! She may do well living with other outgoing and equally playful cats, but we recommend slow introductions as she doesn’t always read social cues from other kitties very well."

If you're thinking about getting a cat, make sure to reach out to the SPCA of Hancock County today to inquire about Ophelia.

"We fully believe that once the right person can successfully navigate the intricate mind of this golden-eyed girl, they will end up with a hilarious and sweet best friend with an immense love for snackies!
