Meow! My name is Gryff
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, declawed, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Gryff is a big, lovable, 22 pound boy who was surrendered to Health and Harmony by his owner. She called Dr. West and wanted to have him euthanized, because he was urinating outside of the litter pan. Dr. West thought that perhaps Gryff was diabetic or had some other medical problem and wanted the owner to do bloodwork to find out what was going on. The owner wanted none of that--she just wanted the cat euthanized. And, so, Dr. West took him in.
Turns out, Gryff got a perfect bill of health (except for being overweight) and has no issues with the litter pan now that he is in a safe, less stressful environment. We have seen this happen so many times--remove the cat from the stress and all problems disappear.
Gryff is about 7-8 years old. He is neutered and Dr. West is going to get him updated on all his vaccines and vet care. He has tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV. He is front paw declawed. If you are interested in giving this sweet boy a wonderful home where he will not have to worry about the shadow of death lurking over him, 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, either email it back to us or fax it to 614-873-0972. Gryff is available for visitors at Health and Harmony if you would like to stop in and meet this wonderful kitty.

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.
