Meet Basil, a shy 11 month-old domestic shorthair cat available at the Johnson County Animal Shelter! Basil found himself at the shelter after his owner passed away and he can be very shy when meeting new people. With time, patience and gentle petting and ear scratches, Basil warms up and enjoys the attention. Basil previously lived with other cats and would do well in a home with at least one other kitty friend, but he is untested with children and other animals. Due to his shy nature, Basil would probably best in a home with older children that can respect his more shy and quiet personality. Are you the peaceful forever home that Basil deserves? All adoptions are done with approved applicants by appointment only and once you fill out the adoption application, the shelter will contact you to set up an appointment and meet the pet. Basil’s adoption fee is $50, which covers his vaccinations and neuter surgery.
