Facts about Zane

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9404405
  • Hair: Short

Zane has made lemonade out of lemons!  At 13 years old, this declawed senior kitty was brought to us by his owner whose child was severely allergic and asthmatic.  He and his "sister" Petey Girl were very scared and confused.  Fortunately we found a foster home for them so they could stay together to acclimate to a new situation.  Zane is very vocal at breakfast time if you don't fill his bowl right away and comes at the shake of the treat bag.  He has a dog friend now in his foster home and they play together.  Zane is no longer afraid or confused.  Many won't consider adopting a 13 year old cat, but this boy is incredibly resilient and quite honestly could live another 7 years.  He's healthy and really a cool dude.  If you'd like to meet him, please email us at  His adoption fee is $45 and he is neutered, declawed and up to date on vaccines.

About Colony Cats (& dogs)

About Our Rescue Group...

Colony Cats is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose primary mission is to address cat overpopulation in central Ohio through public awareness and spay/neuter efforts. Since 2002, our organization has facilitated spay or neuter of over 6,324 animals.

Specialized help for feral, stray and abandoned cats is a core element of our programs. We assist compassionate caregivers who are feeding and watching over homeless cats by providing TNR (trap-neuter-return) and other support services including food, shelter, vaccines and additional vet care for injuries/illness, as well as educational resources.
We also have a network of foster homes for friendly, adoptable cats and kittens - as well as dogs and puppies that we encounter while assisting cats - that have been rescued.

Come Meet Our Pets...

The Colony Cats Adoption Center is a completely different experience in 'sheltering' homeless companion cats. While most of our felines still live in foster homes, we now can bring them out into the public with our cage free adoption center. Cats can do what comes naturally- jump, run, climb, and play; but only until they find their way into your heart and home.

We have pledged not only to make this a completely different experience for the cats, but also for the public.
While we strive to make the adoption center as beautiful as possible, the cats within our care remain our top priority. Our firm belief as an organization is that every homeless cat deserves a chance because every cat matters. We hope that you'll come by and share with us our vision.
