Meow! My name is Harold
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
When Harold came to us, he was a mess. He was missing most of his hair and he had a cloudy eye that we were not sure he could see out of. You can read his original story and see a photo of him when he was bald by going to our blog:
Harold had been living outside with a large number of cats and had not received much care. Since he has been with us, he has blossomed from an ugly duckling into a handsome, sleek swan of a cat. Harold is about 2-3 years old. He has been neutered, vaccinated, tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV, microchipped, and treated for fleas. Harold is the nicest cat you will ever want to meet. He loves to be held and petted and he has never met a stranger. He will roll around on your feet wanting his belly rubbed. He also loves other cats and is best buddies with Anna, who is also featured on here. Harold did have a really bad eye infection before we got him and he now has a scar on his right eye. We think his vision in that eye is probably cloudy if he can see out of it. But it does not slow him down at all. Harold is such a joy and so sweet. He would be a wonderful cat for anyone looking for a kitty that just has tons of love to give.
If you are interested in Harold, please go to our web site, www.bandocats.org and download an application under 'How you can help' and 'Adopt.' Once you have filled out the application, you can either email it back to us or fax it to 614-873-0972. Harold had such a rough start that he truly deserves all the happiness life can offer--and he will give you nothing but love in return.

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.
