8-31-2015 Staten Island Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
***SAFE 08/31/15***BASIL is a 1 year old black and white male, who was wandering the streets looking for his next meal and a dry comfortable place to sleep, when he was brought into the shelter. He is fearful in the shelter and doesn’t know where he is or why he’s there. If no one comes to rescue this young cutie, today will be his last day of life. He’s just beginning his life and doesn’t deserve such a sad fate! BASIL may have been a pet at one point so he may have to relearn how to interact with people, with some time and TLC, this adorable guy would hopefully become an amazing cat companion! Won’t you give little BASIL a chance to live a wonderful cat life? It just takes a little space to save this sweet kitty’s life!! He’d do best in an experienced home with no children. BASIL is waiting for your open arms and he will be forever grateful!!!
