He’s Niagara College’s favourite friendly feline, and long-time Greenhouse resident ‘employee,’ and now Basil the cat is helping to have a ‘paws’itive impact on future students.
Plush toy keychains in Basil’s likeness are now available for purchase. Funds from the keychain sales will support a $500 Basil Bursary which will be awarded to a future student during the winter 2017 term, as well as helping to support NC Greenhouse operations.
Keychains are being sold at Benchmarket (inside the NC Greenhouse, NOTL Campus) for $6 each. Cat lovers and Basil fans take note: they will be sold until November (or until stock runs out) but are in limited supply so don’t delay.

Since adopted by Greenhouse staff in 2003, Basil has left his paw prints on the hearts of students, staff and visitors alike. He has also earned a reputation as a valued staff member at the NC Greenhouse, well groomed for his pest control contributions.
