Meow! My name is Fritzy
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.
Fritzy is the last of several cats that needed to find a home after their older owner went into nursing care and then subsequently died. The other three cats have all found excellent homes and now it is time for Fritzy to do the same. Fritzy came to us as a diabetic cat, but with a change in his diet, he is no longer diabetic. Fritzy is on a special diet, however, of canned food only. By changing him to canned food, we were able to reverse his diabetes. He can only have canned food, however, and it is a venison food due to the fact that he has food allergies and irritable bowel syndrome, which gives him diarrhea with other types of proteins. He loves his venison food and we just need to find an adopter who is willing to keep Fritzy on this special diet. Even though he has some special needs, this cat is worth it. Fritzy loves people and will head butt you so hard he almost knocks you over. He is also a talker and will make sure you know he is around by letting you hear his BIG voice. Fritzy is a beautiful silvery, gray tabby who has been around other cats and is good with them, although he is the dominate cat in any situation. He is neutered, vaccinated, tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV, dewormed, and treated for fleas. This sweet boy is between 4-5 years old and truly deserves a loving family. He has been through a lot over the past months--losing his mom, his other feline friends, being moved around from his apartment home to a barn and now into foster care, and treating him for diabetes, which required medicine and insulin, and then only needing special food. But he is a survivor and has made it through everything. If you would like to adopt Fritzy, 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 email it back or fax it to 614-873-0972. Fritzy is ready for a home where he will spend the rest of his life.

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.
