I was born under Mom's bed on August 2, 2005. I was the first born of 3 kittens by Marmi. The second baby was stillborn, and the third was a very small orange baby.
Marmi was a feral cat that lived in the woods behind a friend's house. The friend was already taking care of 11 cats and just couldn't take in anymore, so she asked to Mom to take her. Mom brought her home and named her Marmalade, Marmi, for short. Mom kept her inside, but somehow she got out and we were the rest of that story.
I was the biggest and strongest baby. When I was born, my human sister said I looked like a baby squirrel instead of a baby kitty and the name Squirrel stuck.
I am very skittish even though I live inside with 4 others kitties and Mom. I like to sit next to Mom and sleep with her, but I get scared when she walks into a room and I run. Mom says I get the "deer in the headlights look" and bolt.
Marmi is still skittish too, so whenever anyone comes over all they see are two streaks flying thru the room and under the bed. Mom's family calls us the "Phantom Cats" MOL.
