Well...I just melted.

This is Basil. A precious little Siamese mix who's available for adoption right now at the SPCA of Southwest Michigan. She's about 3 months old and so sweet.

Basil was originally a barn kitten but that doesn't mean she shies away from people. In fact, as soon as I picked her up she made herself comfortable relaxing on my chest and shoulder. She also has an incredibly audible purr. It's adorable.

Since she's a kitten, and a barn kitten at that, she didn't display any hesitation with Katie's other animals at home. However, if you have another pet and are concerned about how they will get along, just contact the SPCA and they'll help you set up a little meet and greet. You can find all of the SPCA's information here.

Of course, if Basil isn't right for you or you're looking for a dog to adopt instead, there are plenty of animals available for adoption right now. You can see them all here.

The SPCA, truly, does amazing things. I'm always so impressed with Katie Timber and her dedication to these animals and finding them their forever homes. But, that doesn't mean they don't need some help as well.

If you're interested in volunteering I know the SPCA would love to have you. Or you can donate, both monetarily or with specific items, to help them out as well. Here's a list of things they're normally looking for:

  • Puppy food both dry and wet
  • Kitty food both dry and wet
  • Clumping Kitty Litter
  • Dish Soap
  • Paper Towels
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • All purpose antibacterial cleaners
  • Storage Bins with Lids

And so much more. To see their full list of items needed click here. And the next time you're doing your weekly shopping if you happen to see a bogo on some of these items keep the SPCA in mind. Every little bit helps.

Of course, as I ask every week, please share so that we can find Basil, and all the other animals, their forever homes! 💗
