Melvin is a very sweet orange and white male with a calm demeanor. We call him a “ladies man” as he seems to be more comfortable around female humans rather than male humans.

He will affectionately rub up against everything in his path, to ensure he feels at home. He enjoys the company of other cats and would not mind a kitty companion with a like personality.
