Meow! My name is Bells
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with cats.
We named Bells after the song, 'Silver Bells' because her fur is a gorgeous silver color. She is a really beautiful cat and we have never seen such a pretty color. Her fur is also very soft like a bunny rabbits. Poor Bells was caught in a trap and we thought she was a feral cat. So her right ear is ear-tipped, meaning a small part has been cut off the end to show that she has been fixed. This is used with feral cats to allow someone to look and know they have been spayed or neutered. But it was pretty obvious that Bells was not a feral cat when she began head butting us through the trap and sticking her butt in the air so we could pet her. Miss Bells is a bit shy at first and does like to spend time on her own, but if she is given plenty of time to adjust, she quickly warms up to you. She is okay with other cats, but would probably do best by herself or in a home with one other gentle kitty. She has been around a rabbit and did great with him. She is a friendly girl and just loves to have her head and belly rubbed. She is only about 2 years old and has been spayed, vaccinated, tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV, dewormed, microchipped, and treated for fleas/ticks. Miss Bells is a real lover and we are so glad she wandered into our trap. If you are interested in Bells, please download an adoption application from our 'Adopt' page at www.bandocats.org and either email it back to us or fax it to 614-873-0972. Let Miss Silver Bells put you in the holiday spirit.

Rescue Group Info...
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?
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
We work mainly in Plain City, Ohio, which is divided between Madison and Union Counties.
