Basil is our longest term kitty resident having now been with us three months. She is a sweet 2 year old cat that is looking for an extra special home that will have plenty of patience to win her over and let her come out of her shell at her own pace. Basil was found outside and it's possible she may not have had the best interactions with people in her past. She is very head shy and will still cower if approached too quickly and shuts her eyes so tightly or flips to her side. She can be quite the lover once she feels safe and will flop over showing her belly and purrs so loud. She will take a few weeks in a new setting to come out of hiding but we promise she is worth it! She does not have the best cage presence but thrives being out in an open room with other cats so perhaps she would do so much better in a home that already has a cat or two. Basil does great with other cats and will happily play with our kittens or curl up with the older kitties for naps. She is looking for a home with kids over 10 and no dogs at this time. Her adoption fee is $135 and includes all her vaccines, registered microchip, fecal exam, deworming, FIV/FeLV test, and spay.
