Basket, a 2-year-old female tortoiseshell, is the East Bay SPCA's pet of the week. When it comes to relationships, Basket doesn't always like to jump in paws-first. But if you give her a little time, she'll shower you with head butts, purrs and plenty of lap time.

Come meet this Basket of love in our Oakland Adoption Center at 8323 Baldwin St. in Oakland. To see other adoptable pets, visit www.eastbayspca.org or call 510-569-0702 for more information. Need a little extra love after tax day? The East Bay SPCA is offering $15 off any adoption April 12-20. Get your coupon at www.eastbayspca.org/taxfreelove.
