My story

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

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Shy but affectionate and enjoys human attention

Basil is a shy but sweet kitty. She fended on her own at a young age and learned how to live in the woods until she was rescued at about 4 months old. She immediately adjusted to life sleeping on soft blankets, eating regular meals and drinking clean water. She has always been playful and, once you gain her trust, she will seek you out for attention and affection. She enjoys sitting next to you on the couch for a good petting session or curling up next to you for a night's sleep. 

Basil does get along with other calm kitties but would be fine being the only kitty in the household, as long as she has her toys and her humans are not gone for long periods of time. She will do best in a quiet household and with someone (s) who is patient enough to wait for her to adjust in a new surrounding. She lives with dogs and would be fine with calm dogs who are cat savvy.

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

CARE is a volunteer-based organization which relies on foster caregivers to provide loving, stable homes to homeless cats and dogs, helping them become the best possible pets for their future forever families. We do not have a brick and mortar facility; our foster pets reside in our volunteers’ homes and become a part of the family until a forever home is found. You can meet many CARE foster pets at CARE adoption events or, after an application is submitted, by agreement with the CARE foster caregiver at a mutually agreed upon place.
