Our newest family member. This adorable little guy showed up in my sister’s backyard this summer. He was so sweet and friendly; she knew he deserved a good home. Only a few photographs were needed to convince me to drive all the way to Cleveland to pick him up and bring him home. I haven’t regretted that decision for a minute; Basil quickly integrated into the mix, and seems like he has been here for years. The only problems are that he drinks with his paw and then tracks wet paw prints around the kitchen, and he snores—loudly!
