Pet of the month
At Central Animal Hospital, we love all of our patients so much we have decided to honor one pet each month and give them the title of pet of the month.
For the Month of November we'd like to introduce Basil!
Basil's story told by his mom
Basil and I met on Thanksgiving night, 2010. I had gone outside to get a soda at my apartment complex, and there was Basil hanging out by the machine. Someone had dropped him off at my complex - I had never seen him before, and his right ear was notched. He was immediately affectionate towards me and he was such a big magical boy that I should have known right away that I would have trouble trying to keep him from becoming part of my household (I already had a dog in a tiny apartment!). I gave him some turkey and some scratches behind the ears and wished him good luck.
Then, later that night as I took my doggie, Frijole, for his nighttime walk around the block, I heard something following behind us. I turned around and saw Basil. He followed us that night on our entire walk. Over the next week he followed us on every single one of our 4 walks a day. By the end of the week, he had become part of our little family - and so I did the inevitable - and let him inside.
Over the past 8 years there has never been a day that I am not thankful for Basil. He is a great love of my life, and a joy and comfort to me in so many ways. Over the past 7 years Basil and Frijole and I have been so grateful for the whole staff at Central Animal Hospital. Thank you Central Animal Hospital staff! And Happy Thanksgiving from Meg and the Thanksgiving Kitty, Basil.
