Meow! My name is Chaplin
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Orange Or Red (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.
Chaplin is a big, gorgeous orange and white tabby, who originally came to us in 2008 as a kitten. He found a home, but a few months ago his family wrote and said that the son in the family was allergic and they could no longer keep him. Before we could make arrangements, they had taken him to our local kill shelter where he was slated to be euthanized. We went and got him before he could be killed. Chaplin was very angry at first, but he now knows he is safe and loved and he is a wonderful boy. Chaplin LOVES other cats and likes to play with them. He also now loves people and is beginning to trust the world again. He likes to give kisses and will reach out one little paw to touch you just to make sure you are there. Chaplin is about 2 1/2-3 years old. He is neutered, vaccinated, and tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV. He is also microchipped. Chaplin is a sweet and beautiful kitty who truly deserves a very special home after all he has been through. He needs a home where he will be loved and wanted forever. We think he had been abused in his former home, but he is now happy and knows he will never be harmed again. If you would like to adopt Chaplin, please go to our web site, www.bandocats.org and download an application under 'How you can help' and 'Adopt.' Once you have filled it out, you can email it back to us or fax it to 614-873-0972. Chaplin is a lover who deserves someone to love him.

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.
