Meow! My name is Maggie
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Orange Or Red (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Maggie and her brother, Stewie, were born outside and rescued by a nice man who didn't have much time to spend with them. They are really coming around in their foster home, but Maggie is still the shyest of her siblings (her sister, Cassie has been adopted). These guys are about a year and a half old. They have all been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV, dewormed, and treated for fleas and ticks. Maggie will need a quiet home where she can slowly adjust at her own pace. We would like to see her adopted with her brother, Stewie, as they are very bonded and we think it would help her adjust better if she was with her sibling. They have been around dogs and cats. They really like other cats. These two are shy when they first meet you, but if you are willing to take the time with them, they do warm up to you and will be loving kitties with a little time. If you have a quiet environment and are willing to let them progress at their own pace, Maggie and Stewie will delight you. Here is what their foster mom writes about Maggie: 'Maggie is very sweet and loves to play with the other cats. She loves to sit on the cat tower and watch the outside critters. Stewie is her best friend and she cries when they are separated. She loves when you crumple little pieces of paper into balls and she likes to chase the paper balls. She loves tuna and canned kitty food. She also likes to play chase with the other kitties in the house. Maggie does well with the dogs. Maggie knows her name. Maggie has really bad anxiety issues. She does not liked to be picked up and will usually only let me pet her in early morning or late evening. She will run if she thinks you are going to try and pick her up or pet her. I am the only one she will let near her. I use Feliway and that helps a little bit with her anxiety. Her right eye runs, but there is nothing wrong with it.' If you are interested in any of these two orange kitties, please download an application from our 'Adopt' page at www.bandocats.org. Email that back to us 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 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.
