"Did I miss the Easter Bunny? I wanted to play with him!" Basil is very disappointed! Can't pass up an opportunity for a good cat-in-a-yellow-basket photo.

Basil must have thought the yellow basket was a gift for him because he owned it from the day it came into the house, which was the day I was running errands and saw it…atop someone’s trash pile. I sprayed it down and rinsed it in the basement and let it air dry, then brought it up to the magic basket spot, and Basil was immediately IN THE BASKET, looking totally cute, big, long, white whisker and all. Read more, and purchase.

    Very nice of you to groom your baby sibling! Kittens, puppies, and little humans are all a wee bit dirty.

      Ha ha! Bella is only two months older than Basil! But at that age, months are an eternity.

    Miss Bernadette, maybe it’s because some kittens like to lounge in their litter pans. The white kitty before me did that when he was a kitten?! I’m not sure why! Tee hee hee.

      Basil was actually pretty scrupulous, but to Bella much of the world is just not clean enough for her, especially little boy kittens. <3
