This is a courtesy post for a very nice family. Here is what foster dad, Richard, has to say about Blackie:

"Blackie is about 3 yrs. old, a once outside cat. After providing him food and our comfy shelter next to our deck, and several weeks of socialization, we took him in when the weather turned cold. He's friendly, playful, curious, loves to be around you, and seems to enjoy all the new things in a house, including the TV. He is neutered, has all his shots (except the FeL booster), has been wormed and rid of fleas. I'm still treating him for ear mites. Blackie tested positive for FIV, so he would be best in a single cat home, or with another FIV cat. He got along with my daughter's dog, but he and one of our pride do not get along well. We've had two FIV cats before. One we adopted out, and the second, Tux, gave us the pleasure of his company and his love for ten years. So we know FIV cats can enjoy a good life, but we already have four feline companions, including one with special needs. Blackie deserves a good life, too, and he has a lot to give in return."

If you are interested in adopting Blackie, please go to our web site, www.bandocats.org and download an application under "How you can help" and "Adopt." Once you have filled out the application, you can mail it back to bandocats@gmail.com or fax it to 614-873-0972. Once you are approved, we will put you in contact with Richard so you can meet Blackie. 

About Black and Orange Cat Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

Black and Orange Cat Foundation consists of a small group of volunteers working on trap-neuter-return (TNR) efforts for feral cats and spay/neuter services for stray cats in the Plain City area. Plain City is a rural farming community that is situated in two counties--Madison and Union counties. Because we are a farming area, there are a huge number of "barn cats" that need to be fixed. We are the only group in this area working on an ongoing basis to spay and neuter feral and stray cats.

Never heard of TNR? Trap-neuter-return involves humanely trapping feral or "wild" cats in traps baited with tuna or other yummy kitty foods. The cats, once trapped, are then transported to the vet to be spayed or neutered. We desperately want to cut down on the cat over population problem that is overwhelming so many shelters and TNR is helping us do just that.

But while the cats we trap are feral, there are often kittens or tame cats in these colonies that can be placed in homes. The kitties on these pages have all come from sad situations. With a lot of love, medical help, and plenty of good food, these guys have all become lovebugs looking for forever homes. Won't you please consider one of them so they will never be lonely or hungry again?

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have adoption events at the PetSmart on Sawmill Road in Columbus the fourth Saturday of every month from 12-2. We also have two cages at this PetSmart and you can stop in and meet our cats and fill out an application there.

Our Adoption Process...

We require that adopters fill out an application, which can be downloaded from our web site, www.bandocats.org under "How You Can Help" and "Adopt." Once it is filled out, you can email it back to us at bandocats@columbus.rr.com or fax it to 614-873-0972. Our adoption fee is $75. If you adopt two cats or kittens, we only charge one adoption fee. We do not have a shelter, so once you are approved, we will make arrangements to allow you to meet the cat you are interested in through their foster. All cats are in foster homes.
