Meow! My name is Maggie
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Brown Tabby||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Maggie, adult female, DSH, approx. 6-7 yrs., dark grey with brown (a little tiger striping), short-hair; green eyes.
Maggie appeared in the neighborhood during the spring/summer months last year and started to hang out regularly in her foster mom’s back yard/deck area. But when the cold weather arrived she was one of those cats who didn't know how to stay warm--it had to have been her first winter outdoors, so her foster mom brought her indoors.
Maggie had an eye injury that is now completely healed, but it has left her right eye looking like there's a film over it. The vet explained that this is normal for the nature of her injury; she has no pain or discomfort and is not expected to have any future medical issues with that eye, but her vision in her right eye is permanently impaired.
Maggie has a sweet, gentle personality. She has a very soft coat of fur and she melts in your arms when you hold her and she is so very appreciative of your affection. She loves to seek you out and talk to you. Although she isn’t highly interactive with other cats, she gets along with friendly cats and dogs and is not dominant. But because of her impaired vision in 1 eye, Maggie feels threatened by dominant cats, so she would do best in a home with a non-threatening cat or a home of her own.
Unfortunately because of her eye injury, Maggie always squints when she hears the camera, so her foster mom was not able to photo Maggie with her eyes open.
Maggie has tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV, is up-to-date with vaccinations, was previously spayed, has been dewormed and given flea treatment. She gets along well with friendly cats and dogs.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
