Please don't divide the plant now, dividing the plant now will end up having weak plants.
When dividing an orchid plant, each division should have at least 4 bulbs with a new growth.

I suggest you repot it. Break the pot with a hammer and put it in a bigger new pot ( pot
size allows the plant to be sit in comfortably, not too big). Fill it with charcoal.

Totally agree with Yeong. Unless you want to give me a division of this orchid, I do not see why you have a good reason for dividing it ^_^/>

In fact, I would not even do anything to it, leave it there and just pray hard for buds to emerge from the sheath. It looks healthy and catts usually do well in tight pots.
