Today’s selfie introduces Basil who has arrived at Neko Ngeru Cat Adoption Cafe.
For almost a month, Basil hid in one particular spot at the cafe. He was spoken to, stroked and made to feel he belonged. These photos show you how successful this patience has been.

Basil came out to play at the successful Adult’s Only night. This was run so parents, or people who wanted to relax without worrying about youngsters, could visit the cafe.
He was playing with Richelle Okada, the cafe proprietor and playfully chewing at the strong metal support of the window bed he was laid on.
In the first photo he looks fierce and ready to gnash and roar so I thought I should include one showing the young gentlecat as the charmer he is.
From a shy and retiring young cat, Basil is growing in confidence and will soon be down in the cafe meeting and greeting potential adopters with a friendly purr and head butt.
The pictures were taken with my DSLR and kit lens and manual mode (which I am still learning a lot about so will report soon).
Join the selfies, enjoy the genuine company of some good friends and have a great week ahead.
