Facts about Basil

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tiger Striped
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Basil and his 2 siblings were born to a feral calico that was being fed by a nice family. When they realized there were kittens, they trapped the mother and kittens and brought them to the shelter for help. The shelter decided all were too feral and moved them on to Forgotten Felines. Forgotten Felines spayed the mother and re-released her where she came from, took the littlest of the kittens into foster care as it wasn't big enough to fix, and fixed the bigger 2 kittens and returned them to be re-released. The lady feeding them didn't want to just return the kittens to being outdoor ferals and thus their current foster mother took over. Curry, the sister has been adopted, and Basil is hoping it will be his turn soon now.
Basil was very scared when he first came to us, but after a few months has made amazing progress. He now loves attention, purrs readily when pet, loves to climb in laps and cuddle, and is very charming. He is still shy with strangers and will need a little time to settle in to a new home. He's great with other cats.

About Purrfect Pals

About Our Rescue Group...

Purrfect Pals is made up of a small number of caring volunteers. Most of the cats and kittens taken in are strays or orphans brought in to a local veterinary hospital for help and from there taken in to try to secure them a lasting and loved future.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter - cats are in private foster homes. So, we try to see if we have a potential match or matches, then usually set up a meeting at the veterinary hospital where many of us work.

Our Adoption Process...

All cats and kittens are FeLV/FIV tested, started on vaccines, and spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Adult cats are generally $60 and kittens are generally $70.
