Meow! My name is Apple Seed
Apple Seed's Info...
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black & White Or Tuxedo||Age:||Young|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Apple Seed was found at a construction site with Bean Bag and Cat-cus. Bean Bag's face was covered in blood and Apple Seed had an upper respiratory infection that was so bad he could not breathe. We quickly ran them both to the vet. Bean Bag had a broken jaw and, although, he appeared to be only 3 months old in size, was actually as old as Apple Seed--seven months old. The two are now about a year and a half old. The two, we think, are brothers, as they look exactly alike. Bean Bag is the 'Mini Me' version of Apple Seed. Cat-cus was in the best shape of the three. We actually think she may be their mom as she was about a year old and her uterus was a mess when she was spayed, showing that she had had at least one litter of kittens. Bean Bag's broken jaw was due to some type of trauma (some of the workers had been threatening to kill him with a shovel, but we hope that is not the case). Bean Bag's jaw has been repaired, but due to whatever hit him, he will be partially blind in his right eye. He gets around great, however. These are the friendliest cats alive and they love each other. We would like to keep Bean Bag and Apple Seed together, as Cat-cus was just adopted into a wonderful home. They were so happy to be reunited after being apart for various medical care. They are now with each other in foster care. Bean Bag can do everything Apple Seed can and was even trying to eat and play with toys in his mouth while his jaw was broken. He is a survivor. Apple Seed is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV. He has also been dewormed and treated for fleas. If you would like to adopt Apple Seed and Bean Bag, please download an application from our web site, www.bandocats.org and either email it back to us or fax it to 614-873-0972. This little family is just so happy to be alive.

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.
