Nicknames: Squeaks (the Catster crowd calls me that), Kitty, Brat, Baby, Squeakernose, Squeakernosies Squeakertoesies, My Girl, Baby Squeakers (Baby! I'm 4 yrs old!) Baby baby Squeakers, Squee-Squee
Gotcha Date: June 29th 2003
Birthday: February 28th 2003
Likes: Jumping on table or dresser, napping anywhere she plops down, running like mad around the house, ear and face rubs, being brushed
Pet-Peeves: A dirty litter box, having her back claws clipped, being picked up, dogs , car rides, and the growl monster (vacuum cleaner) having someone clean her ears, ear drops, being woken up from a nap, excess petting, having paws touched
Favorite Toy: Her "catch the mouse" toy with a mouse inside two pieces of plastic on a turntable, she bats at that thing, and she'll never catch it! Kitty fishing poles, anything with feathers or cellophane, or anything "snaky" like ropes
Favorite Nap Spot: Top of kitty condo, middle of my bed, sofa or rocking chair or on the fluffy rug in the bathroom
Favorite Food: Iams Weight Control food, Fancy Feast Gormet Gold, chicken, turkey, cheese, Cheez-Its. But now she can only have N.F prescription food
Arrival Story: I got her from a friend of a friend. She was only four months old then. Her name was Brownie, but I didn't like that name for a pretty female calico kitten. I brought her up to my apartment and showed her the important things (food, water, litter box) then allowed her to roam around and check out her new home. I named her Squeakers because as she was roaming, she squeaked! She then hid under the bed, and I expected not to see her for a few days. So I settled down with a book on my sofa, and twenty minutes later, I felt a paw tapping on my shoulder! At first I didn't think she was that cute, after that, I thought she was adorable!
Bio: I am not sure of her breed, I know she's a shorthair, so I think she's either an American Shorthair or Domestic shorthair. I just know that is her coloring is calico, that she can get pretty courageous and naughty sometimes, and that I adore her!

Total Score (Place your score/name in your Diary Title):
My Score is 11. I'm, or was, a COOL CAT! Well I already knew that!
0-5 LAIDBACK LOVEBUG: You are a lovebug. You are sweet (and probably floofy) and you go with the flow. Nothing *really* bothers you and you like everybody. You don’t even mind having a feisty sibling! You are a laidback lovebug!
6-15 COOL CAT: You are one cool cat. Smooth with a touch of mischief. You’ve got a bit of feisty in you and a bit of lovebug. Balance is good; you know how to have a good time by chasing and pouncing AND you know how to have a good time by being a mellow kitty and just hanging out. You are a cool cat!
16+ CRAZY FEISTY: You are a nut. A cheeky little monkey! Crazy, feisty, the talk of the town! Chasing kitty sisters, demanding your human feed you NOW, eating your mom’s favorite pair of shoes, turning on the oven with your freakishly strong teeth just because you can! The world is your playground and you’ll try anything once (or twice). If your human can handle the shenanigans of a CRAZY FEISTY kitty cat, all is good! If your human cannot handle the shenanigans, wait until she leaves for work to get crazy and then blame it on your sistercat when your human comes home! You are crazy feisty (and a whole lot of mischievous fun!)!
Any kitty that wants to play is invited! Feel free to tag friends to find out just how feisty your friends are!
This is so weird.
It doesn't happen every night, but at least twice a week. I go to bed, and as soon as I turn the light out and start to fall asleep, but am still somewhat awake, I seem to feel "something" jump up on the bed and walk over to me. At first, I think it's Sandy, so I either sit up and turn the light back on, or I just look over and either Sandy is lying right next to me or somewhere on the bed, or hasn't come to bed yet.
Sometimes, but not very often anymore, when I sleep over at my mom's house, I used to feel a cat jump up on the bed (but my mom doesn't have a cat. .. yet) and I just laughed and thought I was so used to one (or both) cats jumping on my bed to "kiss me/knead me goodnight", but that doesn't happen anymore. Although the first time that ever happened was when I was in the hospital for my gallbladder operation. . .but then, I was on painkillers, an IV, and I had been up for at least 20 hours!
After Squeakers left for the bridge, I had Sandy with me. She always sleeps with me. .. . Squeakers, not that much since Sandy came. So I hadn't felt any "ghost cat walking" until about a month ago.
I wonder if Squeakers is trying to tell me something. . or is just trying to tuck me in! MOL!
Or. .. maybe it's not Squeakers at all. .. maybe I'm just a crazy cat lady needing more sleep!
I never told anyone. . .and who knows, maybe Squeakers wants me to keep her secret. Besides, I know if I told my mom or my friend Jen, they'd both roll their eyes like I was some kind of nut.
Maybe I am.
Though I have read things about telepathy, even from beyond "The Bridge" and believe it is possible. Especially since I did experience a telepathic connection between me and my sweet Squeakers about two months after she left me. She showed me that she was okay, I even saw her with a friend, a sad dog that she was keeping company with. I know that she misses me even more than I miss her, but that she's okday. . and so am I.
When Sandy choses to leave this Earth. . I will be devastated, but I think I will be able to connect with her too.
On one of her earlier diary entries, about her waking me up by walking on me, Squeakers once said:
"These paws were made for walkin'
And that's just what they'll do
Every morning these paws
Are gonna walk all over you!"
I finally heard from Leo, after months! *flaps wings* He sent me a star and roses! Thank you soooo much Leo! I miss you so incredibly much!
I'm glad he sent me those, because then I went on his page to see if he'd added a diary entry or. . .anything, but his Christmas pics are still up. But I saw a birthday cake rosie on his page and OOPS!! That's what I get for counting on Mommy's memory! His birthday was yesterday! So I gave him a rosie too, and begging him to come back, also wishing him a happy belated birthday.
He's probably celebrating all week anyway! Happy Birthday Leo! MWAH!
