My personality

My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION BELOW. IT WILL ANSWER ALL YOUR QUESTIONS. If you still have questions after, we are happy to respond through email.


It is a long read and a long adoption process. Please understand we are ensuring that our babies go to great homes and we don't know you personally (yet). Understand that this is an adoption of a beautiful little soul that deserves the absolute best life.


The average lifespan of a cat is 13 to 20 years. Some cats even live into their thirties, although this is far less common. So don't let that discourage you from adopting an adult cat! Rescue mama has had 3 live into their 20's. One was 8 weeks old.


BASIL was born in a foster's home. Her family came from a horrible situation. There were 10 cats saved. 6 of them were pregnant (one of them being BASIL's mom). They were all living in a yard where they were occasionally allowed in a garage in Moreno Valley, Ca.


Most of the cats were all named after SUPER HEREOS, except BASIL's mom and aunt (ELENORE and MOLLY MOO). It seemed fitting since they were all basically surviving and being fed scrapes, fighting other cats and dogs. They were living off a dangerous street where people were actually poisoning the cats.


So BASIL has never known the street life. She has lived a nice pampered life. The two sister moms raised their kittens together so we really don't know if ELENORE or MOLLY MOO is her mom.


Our beautiful girl has not lost her love. We got her adopted at 6 months and her family returned her after a year and half because they were "supposably" allergic to her. We were so disappointed that she had to have her heart broken like that.


Meet BASIL, a young feline filled with sweetness and curiosity. Her friendly nature makes her the perfect companion for anyone seeking a loyal friend. BASIL's independence means she is comfortable exploring her surroundings, but she always returns for a cuddle or a playful game. Her goofy antics and gentle demeanor will bring laughter and calm to your days.


With her smart, energetic spirit, BASIL is always ready for a new adventure. Her funny, playful side will keep you entertained, while her cuddly, loyal personality will make you feel loved. BASIL is more than just a shelter cat; she is a companion, a friend, and a source of endless joy. Adopt BASIL and experience the unique bond of a human-feline friendship. Her love and loyalty are waiting for you.


BASIL is DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR / ABYSSINIAN MIX. She is about 3 years and 1 months old. She is good with cats and dogs. She has lived with young children.


BASIL is currently at a foster home in Indio, California.

*********MAY CONSIDER OUT-OF-STATE ADOPTIONS NEAR CALIFORNIA, BUT BE AWARE THAT WE WILL NOT SHIP. ADOPTER WILL NEED TO PICK UP**********


MAY 2024: VOLUNTEERS are the only ones allowed to let you meet the kitty. Not PETSMART employees.


Volunteers are usually at PetSmart between 9 am to 1 pm for cleaning. The cats currently at PETSMART you are allowed to go visit. A good time to come visit is between 4 pm - 9 pm. The VOLUNTEERS are only there in the evening for 3 hours so please call the PetSmart location, email us or visit the cattery for VISITING HOURS. Most days are different 3-hour shifts. It's based on volunteer availability.


******************* If you call the PETSMART location, please ask them to physically check the cattery door for the current week's VISITING HOURS. ******************


The kitties at a foster/rescue homes, we will accommodate as much as possible. But steps 1-6 of the ADOPTION PROCESS need to be done before we do OFFICIAL MEET & GREETS. It is easier to do the meet and greets at the locations listed below.


PETSMART
in Murrieta, California off Madison Avenue

in Hemet, California off Florida Avenue

in Palm Desert, California off Monterey Avenue

or any PETSMART near you!


The crazy rescue mama will drive kitties to their new home, meet & greets, etc...once the phone interview and home check have been done.. Gas donations are always appreciated!


************ Please no calls to the rescue. No one is available to take calls. ************



If the CAT/KITTEN is still listed (meaning here or other websites) they are still available. It does not mean they don't have other pending applications or meet and greets.


Please note: Just because you fill out an application and are approved does not obligate you to adopt the cat/kitten. If he or she is not a fit...we have plenty of other cats / kittens available for adoption.


We are a SMALL rescue based out of Hemet, California. We are all volunteers that run the rescue. If we haven't reached out....be patient.


BASIL is ALREADY fully vetted.
The adoption fee of $200 covers:


Spay
FVRCP shots
RABIES shot
FELV/FIV test (Negative/Negative)
Drontal Dewormer
Stronghold Flea Control
Microchip


We are NOT a government FUNDED shelter and all our donations and adoption fees are for our rescued cats/kittens. So, we do not do DISCOUNTS.


If for some unfortunate reason you missed out on the kitten/cat you emailed about...I'm sure that we could help you with another rescue baby! Just ask!
