Chad Basil the First – Where Are All the Balls?

September 3 2022

Chad Basil the First update! He continues to get more comfortable with his home, and us.

I bought a bag of 100 rubber balls for Basil last November. We only have about 5 left. Where are the balls? 😂 I have a feeling there are many under the fridge, stove, and corners of the couch that can’t be easily reached.

Basil has decided he loves to be petted, scratched, and stroked. He actively comes over and “asks” for some lovin’. He still does not want to sit with us or on our laps, but I have a feeling that one day he will decide he wants to give it a try. He does let me give him kisses now, as this used to freak him out. Maybe he thought I was going to eat him. 😆😂😆

In short, Basil is absolutely adorable.

Sweet Kitty Climbing the Shower Curtain While Adoring Thomas – Basil Update

April 27 2022

Basil lets us pick him up now, and we can sit beside him without him leaving. He’s still not liking sitting in Thomas’s lap, but I’m sure that will come with time.

For anyone new to the Chad Basil the First updates: Basil is my 16 year old son’s rescue cat, adopted in December as emotional support. Basil spent the first month under Thomas’s bed, not allowing us near him. We’ve come a long way. 🎉🖤🎉

Yesterday afternoon, during my 3rd Zoom session of the day, I heard an odd noise coming from Thomas’s bathroom. When I checked into it, I found a sweet kitty climbing the shower curtain.

Basil adores his Thomas. When Thomas enters the room, Basil stops what he’s doing, and goes to Thomas. It’s the sweetest to watch them together.

Chad Basil the First – One Month Update

January 8 2022

Basil has been with us a month now. I finally got to take my own photo of him last night.

He’s making great progress. He actually lets me see him now, will play with his favorite toy with me, has smelled my fingers and toes, and doesn’t run when he hears my voice.

He’s getting more comfortable with Thomas, letting Thomas touch him, and coming out from under the bed more often.

He’s also getting more brave, and mischievous. He’s been exploring the house in the middle of the night, leaving bits of his findings on the living room floor.

Look who came into the living room last night, while I was still awake! 🥰🥰🥰 I think he would have stayed longer, but he heard voices coming from outside, and got spooked.
