Basil is an adorable little lady that hasn’t figured out yet what it feels like to be loved. She lived her whole life outside and her feline family were her only companions. She didn’t have much human interaction, except with the man that fed them. When the family kept growing, he reached out to Good Mews for help. We were able to take them and find them loving homes. Basil wasn’t brought in the same time as the rest of her family but we are thankful the caregiver was finally able to get her and bring her to safety.
Now Basil will finally know what it feels like to be loved by humans. We are going to spend a lot of time with her teaching her that we are on her side and we are here for her. She’s already starting to feel more secure with people she often sees. She lets them pet her and love on her. Her new family will need to be patient with her and spend a lot of time with her, helping her feel secure. Once she feels comfortable in her new home, she will be a sweet, loving companion. She just needs someone to give her a chance.
Because Basil has always lived her life with other cats, she needs to be adopted into a home with another calm, feline friendly cat to help teach her that humans are okay!
