Hello Basil’s Travels fan and a very happy Tuesday to you! Today we are celebrating our resident fat cat, Willow’s 12th birthday! Nate, Basil, Sebastian, and I can’t believe she has hit the big one two! She is the best cat and we are so lucky she has decided that we are her family. So, in honor of Willow FC please enjoy some of my favorite photos from over the years.
Happy 12th Birthday Willow! Here is to 12 more!
Hope you like cat photos! Tomorrow we will be back to your regular scheduled Boston Terrier programing!
What?! So you are telling me that for the cost of 1 book I can gain “financial freedom” by learning how to pimp out my fat cat? Now that is a deal!
In How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity you will find a large number of helpful tips such as smaller box = Bigger $$$ or cat + props = success. You will learn how to classify your cats personality and which role he or she should play online for maximum payoff.
This book is so funny and packed with cat photos I would recommend it to anyone with or without a pet. So, just ask yourself… Do you have a cat who is not yet internet famous? Do you have at least 1 box and 1 cat? Do you love cats and/or cat photos? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity is the book for you! I mean, just look at these before and after photos!
Today Basil’s favorite thing is not something you can just order online and get delivered to your door in 2 days. It requires a little more of a commitment than a new collar and leash set and could be pretty costly. If Basil loves one thing more than anything, it’s his cats!
Basil is the proud “big” brother of two cats, Willow & Sebastian. Willow, our 11 year old 17 pounder, is the dominant force in this household. Basil and Willow have an understanding. He understands that she doesn’t want him in her face all the time and she understands that he understands this!
Our “kitten” is 3 year old Sebastian. Sebastian is one half of the crazy duo we like to call The Black & Whites. He loves Basil and doesn’t mind snuggling or being jumped from behind at the drop of the hat. I usually have to stop them from playing too rough almost every night.
Not only does Basil love his cats, he wants to play with every cat we come across on our daily walks. I have to remind him that these cats are not his and they don’t know that he isn’t going to hurt them. If we were to bring another cat home Basil would be overjoyed. Our cats, not so much!
Both Willow and Sebastian were adopted. Willow from the Tacoma Humane Society and Sebastian from a friend whose cat had a litter of unwanted kittens. We are big supporters of Humane Societies and encourage everyone to visit and consider adopting a pet from one of these places. If adopting a new pet isn’t something you can do right now please think about donating your time or money to your local humane society or animal control. You can also find more information about what you can do by visiting the ASPCA website.
Hello! Basil was being a little too needy so I pulled out his favorite toy, the pickle pocket! It is kind of the best toy ever. Fill it with whatever your dog loves and they are happy for at least an hour… maybe. Enjoy this video of Basil enjoying his P.P filled with some lamb lung. Its both hilarious and a little gross! Hehe
Its Halloween time again and that means everyone from little kiddies to partying adults to the our four legged friends get ready to dress up and have a good time! Here in this household we are big into dressing up. Usually Willow FC “begs” to be a blow fish and Sebastian just “loves” his hot dog costume. Last year, Basil decided he was going to be a pirate. Mostly because Nate & I went as Peter Pan and Ticker bell and Basil loves to match.
This year we thought we would ask all of Basil’s loving fans to vote on their favorite costume for Halloween 2013. Below you will find sample photos, all from wag.com, and a poll to tell us what you think. Whatever is voted highest by Friday October 11th will be Basil costume this year. Thanks for your help in this very important matter and we will announce the winner this weekend and some adorable photos will follow!
