Say hello to Flat Basil

Hi guys! Today I’ve got a guest taking a selfie with me. Do you recognize him? It’s Flat Basil…from one of our favorite blogs, Basil the Bionic Cat.

When the mom was at BlogPaws, she finally got to meet the human that is owned by Basil and the rest of the gang…the lovely Miss Cathrine who came all the way from jolly ol’ England to be there.

The mom and Cathrine

Nah, this isn’t a selfie of the mom and Miss Cathrine, but we thought we’d share this with you anyway. Yep, that’s stuffed Basil that Miss Cathrine is holding.

We wanted Basil to come visit our island…but since it’s not really possible to have the real Basil here, Flat Basil agreed to fill in for him. Over the summer, we’re gonna take Flat Basil sightseeing around our island and other places in our area, and we’ll be sharing his adventures with you.

Does that sound like fun, Flat Basil?

Hey, I like you. You’re quiet and you don’t try to steal my food or toys. But you’re taking up way too much space here on my mini cat tree. Guest or not…you better move over, buddy, before you end up on the floor.

Me and Flat Basil are pawticipating in

  3. Oh, you and Flat Basil are going to have so much fun, Ernie. And, of course, fantastic selfies!

  4. Ernie dude, DUDE thank Cod mew got the Flat Basil and not the Basil Clone [who btw is an absolute menace! MOL] We can’t wait to see what mew guys get up to, and the P.A. was so thrilled to meet your mom #Blogpawshighlight as she didn’t even know your mom was there until Brian’s dad said, “There’s someone here that wants to meet you!” The P.A. couldn’t believe it, as mew guys were one of the furry furst kitty bloggers to comment on our blog all those eons ago, so meeting your mom was truly delightful and she’s such a fabulous lady, thank mew so much fur making the P.A.’s trip so great. #toptrip #bestpeepsinthecosmos #blogpawsrocks Big hugs Basil & CO xox

  5. That’s a great selfie with flat Basil! How great he’s gonna explore the island! But of course, he should behave in your home, guest or not, heh heh 🙂

  6. I really really want to share that tour with you and Flat Basil. How wonderful to meet a kitty and human that you know from the CB.

  7. FLAT BASIL!!! LOVE THAT. Do you think mama could make a Flat Loulou to travel with? She’s already starting on that, I’m sure. Great idea. And is that a STUFFED BASIL?? How did they do that one?

    • We think your mama needs a Flat Loulou…then she could take you everywhere she goes!

  8. We are liking Flat Basil’s bow tie. We might try that look ourselves…

    Have a great day.

    hugs, Bugsy, Knuckles and HH

  9. Great photo and great idea to take Flat Basil all around Metro Detroit. Do you know, for the LONGEST time I thought Basil’s Mom was MUCH older? I have no idea why but I did!

  10. How cool that Flat Basil made the jaunt to the famous Island and such a terrific photo. It’s nice to see the Basil P.A. too, she is such a sweet Mum!

  11. Oh I bet you’re gonna have a fabulous time with Flat Basil this summer…..can’t wait to find out what you all get up to!

    Hugs, Teddy

  13. I look forward to Flat Basil’s journey! It should be lots of fun.

  14. We know flats can be fun!

  15. It’s fun to have company, especially if you don’t have to share treats and toys with them. And he’s flat, so he can’t take up too much space in your bed! 🙂

  16. What a fun idea – I don’t think we’ve ever seen much of the island where you guys live.

  17. It’s so great that your mom and Miss Cathrine got to meet in purrson, Ernie. And how nice that Flat Basil came to visit you there. Just turn him sideways, and he’ll take up way less space on your mini cat tree. 🙂

  18. The Flat Basil dude is one natty dresser, and I hope you let him share some of you cat tree for a bit longer. Anyways, Ernie, your mom was s a real delight to meet at BlogPaws and we can’t wait to see what you Basil and your mom get up to. I do hope it’s something adventuresome like Basils adventures!?
    Purrs, ERin
