Meow! My name is Jamie
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby||Age:||Young|
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Miss Jamie came to us during a trapping project at a local trailer park. She went in to be fixed and we discovered that she had some really bad teeth with nerves exposed requiring a root canal. We couldn't return her to the trailer park in such bad shape, so off she went to have her teeth fixed. While she was at Noah's Ark (until she could go to Dr. Klein at East Hilliard Vet Services for the root canal), she began to vomit blood. Turns out, she also had a bleeding ulcer and would have died if she had gone back outside (thank you to Dr. Jensen for saving her life). Jamie also had milk when she was spayed, so she had babies somewhere, but no one could tell us where they were. Poor Jamie is barely a kitten herself and she was so small and so malnourished that she weighed only about 4 pounds. With the bleeding ulcer, she couldn't keep any food down. She also was not a feral cat--only scared and in pain from all that she had wrong with her. She is really a lover.
Luckily, Jamie is now all better. The ulcer is healed. Her mouth, which had to have been causing her enormous pain, is healed. She is putting on weight and growing into a gorgeous girl. Jamie is less than a year old. She is finally starting to act like the overgrown kitten she is and just wants to play. She is being fostered in a home with older cats and they are fed up with all her juvenile antics.
Jamie is spayed, vaccinated, tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV, microchipped, dewormed, and treated for fleas. Jamie is a sweetheart and has soft bunny fur that she loves to have petted.
This sweet girl has been through so much. She truly deserves a safe, loving home for the rest of her days. If you would like to adopt Jamie, 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 either email it back to us or fax it 614-873-0972. Jamie is a silvery tabby with lots of love to give. She should never have to worry again.

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.
