Pet of the Week
Basil will spice up your life By Laura Vinroe, Humane League of Lancaster County
Basil is eager to savor all the love and attention your home has to offer.
Cuddly and affectionate, Basil has a soft body that melts in your arms as you gather him into your lap. He's always ready to receive attention from visitors, but he doesn't mind exploring when you have other things to do. At just 1½ years old, Basil is still a curious kitten at heart.
On top of his wonderful personality, Basil is also a very handsome kitty. He has a buff, tiger-striped coat and beautiful golden eyes. Basil is already neutered and litter-box trained. Brought to the shelter as a stray, Basil is eager to once again have a home to call his own.
He'd love a home that's full of cozy beds, fun places to explore and, most importantly, people to love. Come meet affectionate Basil today and let him season your life with happiness.
