Facts about Bandit

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Bandit is our special boy with a dramatic, life changing story. It was midnight when our adoption coordinator received a call from a nice young woman from her old neighborhood saying that she had seen a bus swerve and a cat dragging itself on to the curb. She ran home got a blanket and carrier and went back to find Bandit in a bush. Bandit knew her and was very cooperative. She rushed him to the ER. Bandit was born on the streets and had no socialization but because all life is precious, we could not turn our backs on him. He spent a week in the hospital and had extensive reconstructive surgery to repair his broken leg and femur. While there he also made friends with his nurses and his doctor and proved to be a gentle, receptive boy. Bandit has made a full recovery. He has a pin holding his hip together and you would not know anything was wrong with his hip and leg. He will need an understanding, loving family that will continue his socialization. We at Hearts United would like to thank the staff at Veterinary Specialists for reaching out to Bandit and treating him with dignity and respect.

About Hearts United Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Hearts United Cat Rescue is comprised of a group of families united by our passion and dedication to help homeless cats. We do not have a physical shelter, but instead work out of a network of foster homes throughout the central Connecticut area where the fostered cats and kittens are treated like members of the family.

The cats remain in their foster homes until they find their permanent, committed and loving families. While being fostered they learn what it is like to be part of a family.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are in private homes and our foster families are flexible and happy to accommodate to your schedule. Since they are private homes, you do need to fill out an application before going for a visit. We have public showings and adoption event at the United Methodist Church in Newington and we are in partnership with the PetSmart in Plainville.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step to our adoption process is to fill out our quick and easy online application that is found on our website. From there our adoption counselor will call you to go over it with you and talk about any concerns that you may have.

We collect a tax deductible donation of $100 to offset medical costs that we provide the cats. Those costs include: flea control, internal parasites treatment and age appropriate vaccines. We also provide them with a wellness checkup and testing for FeLV and FIV. We ask for $125 if a kitten is already spayed/neutered. Adults are $100 and are fully vetted. Seniors, special needs and bonded pairs have a reduced donation. We do provide a spay/neuter program for kittens that are too young to be spayed/neutered. The cost of the program is $80.
If you have any questions the fastest way to reach our adoption coordinator is through email. Thank you!
