Meow! My name is Clayton
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black (Mostly)||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.
Clayton is one of the sweetest cats you will ever meet. He has blossomed so much in his foster home. Clayton runs to greet you and follows you around like a little dog. He utterly adores other cats and he loves to play. It is common to see Clayton, running through the house with a ball in this mouth, tail wagging, with his buddy, Mitch, in hot pursuit. You just have never met such happy cats. Clayton is also a very rare all black cat. Most black cats have a spot of white on them somewhere, but Clayton is entirely black. Mitch and Clayton, were very, very sick when they first came to us for vet care. They had terrible upper respiratory infections that killed two of their siblings. Luckily, these two survived and are doing really well now. The boys are both about one year to a year and a half old and have been neutered, vaccinated, tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV, treated for fleas and ticks, microchipped, and dewormed. The boys are huge love bugs and they love to be petted and will sit beside you waiting to get rubbed down. They are a bit hesitant about being picked up, because no one really held them much at the farm they were at when they were babies. They are both doing much better with this, however, and Clayton now likes to be picked up. Mitchie (as we call him) is actually a pest about wanting your attention. He is shy at first, but once he knows you are his buddy, he follows you everywhere and is constantly wherever you are. We originally wanted the boys stay together, but as long as they have another cat to bond with, they will be fine being adopted without each other. If you would like to adopt them as a pair, however, we would only charge one adoption fee of $75. If you are interested in Mitch or Clayton, please go to our web site, www.bandocats.org and download an application from the 'Adopt' page. You can then either email that back to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax it to 614-873-0972.

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 email@example.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.
We work mainly in Plain City, Ohio, which is divided between Madison and Union Counties.
