To celebrate Adopt a Cat Month (USA) we are hosting a small but special giveaway with a prize from our own local rescue where Mum volunteers each Friday – Upper Hutt Animal Rescue (UHARS).  Ladies and gentlepals, may I please have your applause, and giggles, for the cutest, funniest tea towel you could ever hope to own – ‘The Adventures of Basil‘.

Adopt a Cat Month Giveaway Closed

This unique kitchen aid (although it won’t DO the washing up) is made from cotton and printed here in New Zealand with witty illustrations by Natelle Quek, in blue or orange (more an orangey red). It is unique to UHARS where the tea towels are available for $10 each plus shipping. (Any USA folk wanting one, let us know as we are currently finding out the cost of shipping one internationally).

Adopt a Cat Month Basil’s Story

Basil was found a stray about 4 years ago. He was in an extremely emaciated condition, all skin and bones, and when he was taken to the vet’s, Basil tested positive for Feline FIV (the cat version of human HIV). Basil has since put back all of the weight he lost (and much, much more), and is now a permanent fixture of the society’s base in Kingsley Heights, Upper Hutt.

    Oohhh… VERY nice! Always makes the dryin’ of dishes that much more fun when the tea towels are cute or pretty. At least, that’s what the peeps say. Personally, I don’t help with that stuff. I’m more into the supervising, if you know what I mean.
