Basil

Basil is just a baby. He came to us on June 18th (2011), when he was about three weeks old. We don’t know anything about his life before that, but we suspect it might have involved insufficient food. Why? The staffer who fostered him has fostered literally hundreds of kittens in the time she’s been doing cat rescue work. Typically, kittens are free-fed, meaning they get to eat as much as they wish, whenever they wish. They’re growing and developing very quickly when they start eating solid food, so they need a lot of nourishment and calories. Basil is the first kitten for whom this staffer has ever had to restrict food intake. He just wouldn’t stop eating. As you might expect, we checked him for parasites, but all tests came back negative. Luckily, at this point, he’s finally starting to slow up on chowing down, though he still loves his food. He’s too small to neuter now, but we’ll attend to that when he’s grown just a bit more.

At any rate, he’s a charmer, with a grey tail, grey over his head and ears and back, and white on all four legs and his underside. When he’s not eating, he’s a typical kitten: playful, sweet, and inquisitive.

Kittens are usually adopted rapidly at Tabby’s Place, and we know Basil will find a home fast. Come in to meet him before someone else beats you to it!
