He's been losing weight and hanging out on top of the kitchen cabinets. Not sure why. So I put him in a room where he had access to food and water 24/7. Thought he was doing better. Gave him some wet food which he ate. Came in to check on him this morning and he was in his final stages of dying. I was holding him when he took his last breath. I only had a few minutes before he passed. I'm glad I was there in his last moments. Rest in peace my sweet boy! You know you were loved and will be missed dearly. Just 2 months shy of your 4th birthday...way too young to be an angel now. I love you Squirt Squirt. Wait for me at the bridge. He passed at 7:45 am. Heaven's newest angel. Forever in my heart. I love you Squirt!

Happy Birthday Squirt! There are 355 birthday kitties today! You're a big boy now. No longer a kitten. In reality, you're a terror. You show no mercy when you go after Sadie or any of the other furrbutts in the house. We're gonna have to get your little butt fixed and homefully tame you down! You're anti social too. You don't let anyone pet you or love on you and you run or cringe and pull away when someone touches you. I'm not sure why that is. On occasion I find you on the bed when I wake up but I think that's only cuz it's warmer there but as soon as I move, you run away. I still love you and don't regret taking you in. You're just totally opposite of how you started life out in our home. Happy Birthday Squirt! You'll still always be my little boy no matter how big or old you get.

 

2nd Set of Shots

Went to the vet yesterday for my 2nd set of shots. I weighed in at 3.5 pounds. OMC! I'm a little porker. Just a month ago I weighed 1.8 pounds. I guess that's what happens when you have food at your disposal 24/7.

After being weighed, they brought me back into the exam room and put me on the table. I may be young, but I'm not stupid. I know the routine and knew what was going to happen next. So, I made a beeline for mom. I tried to squeeze myself in between her arm and her side. I didn't get very far before they stuck me with those needles. Afterwards, I ran into my kennel and tried to bury myself in the back of the kennel beneath the towel.

Mom was telling me today that she needs to get me fixed. I don't know what that means, but it doesn't sound good. She says I'm old enough to have it done and the sooner the better. Uh-oh. I don't think I'm going to like whatever that is!!!

 

Mom wonders if I'll ever learn...

I just got sprayed with my name sake (the squirt bottle) and I don't like it!

Here I was minding my own business and biting mom's feet while she's at the computer and having a blast doing it. She kept saying "no biting" but I don't know those words yet (or maybe I'm just not listening which mom says it's typical of a guy) so I kept biting. I'd roll off her feet and do summersaults and then pounce back on them, wrap all 4 paws around her leg and bite again. Oh, I can't forget the back feet rabbit action that kitties like to do. I think that was the breaking point.

Finally mom moved her feet on top of the chair wheels and I did it again. Surprisingly, that Squirt bottle is sitting right by the computer. She just picks it up, sprays me in the face with it (of course I take off and run away), sets the water bottle back down and continues whatever she was working on. Didn't miss a beat.

So mom's wondering if I'll ever learn.

 

I Learned A Few Things Lately!

I did! Did you know they named a bottle after me? Yeah! The Squirt Bottle! Although I'm honored to have something named after me, it's not as exciting as you might think! Mom showed it to me the first time and I was like "oh look, that bottle is so cute...just like me" and then the unexpected happened. I got sprayed right in the face with water! Not once, but several times. I had to run away! So mom put the bottle away. Well, she showed it to me again yesterday. You would think that I would've learned the first time but I thought the first time might have been a fluke. Nope! Looks like I'm just going to have to run from it if mom ever shows it to me again. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!

Had to go back to the vet today for my first set of shots. Mom took me there almost 3 weeks ago for my checkup. The mean lady stuck something up my butt trying to retrieve a sample for the worm test. No luck. Well, today that same mean lady stuck a thermometer up there and I squired all over the place. Then right after that was the stick to collect another sample. I did not enjoy that! Then the mean lady left and went to test the sample. So there I was on the counter exploring the surface and the mean lady came back in. I took one look at the mean lady and then I literally jumped on mom and climbed up to her shoulder! That mean lady was not going to get me again! The mean lady started laughing and she said I was so cute when I jumped to mom when she came in.

So then came the shot! That wasn't pleasant either. She tried to slide me across the table as she injected me in the attempt of distracting me from the fact that she was sticking me with this really big needle! As soon as she was done, I ran to my carrier and tried to squeeze myself thru the little holes in the door. Mom couldn't get the door open fast enough for me. The mean lady started laughing again. She said I brightened her day cuz I was so cute with my actions toward her!

I weighed in at 1.8 pounds today and I had no worms in my sample. Mom is really proud of me. I gained .8 pounds in 2.5 weeks which means I'm eating pretty good. Of course I am! The food is out 24/7! How can you not like that! Unfortunately I have to go back for my second set of shots on June 27. The good news is that Tigger, Princess and Daisy the dog will be going to the vet that day too for their annual checkup and shots. I won't be alone!

So, I've had quite a few learning experiences lately! I've had a busy today and probably need to relax for a little while. So on that note, it's time to rest.

 

I'm a Keeper!!!

Finally, I found a home! I'm a very lucky kitty, that's all I know.

Although I'm 5-6 weeks old at this point, my life story didn't start until just recently. I was found on a bridge by my mom's boss's daughter and her boyfriend. Mom guesses I was found within the last week. That part is kind of vague. Will have to find out more when mom goes back to work tomorrow.

Last Friday my mom's boss mentioned that his daughter found the kitten and he guessed it was about a month old. Mom was told I was a female that they named Squirt. He mentioned that they already had too many animals and they couldn't keep me. Said that they were probably going to take me to the Humane Society. Well, you know mom! Mom knows if I went to the Humane Society, I'd be put to sleep because I'm too young to vaccinate. So, mom decided that if they didn't find me another home, that I'd have one at her house.

So, reluctantly, the daughter brought me to mom's house and handed me over last night. I know she didn't want to give me up but she knew she had to and I'd have a purrfect home here. So here I am.

Mom noticed right off the bat that I'm a boy!!! Mom guesses I'm about 5-6 weeks old but would have to get confirmation from the vet. I guess I'll be keeping my given name (at least for now).

Well, I had my first vet visit today. They confirmed that I'm a boy and around 5-6 weeks old. I weighed in at a whopping 1 pound today! Mom's guessing that now that I have food and water anytime I want it, I'll be gaining weight pretty quick. The vet tried to do a fecal on me to test for worms, but they didn't get enough to do the test. So, mom has to bring them a sample the next time she goes back (which is in about 2.5 weeks). I'll be getting my first set of shots then.

Mom got some good financial news today. The vet said that mom will be getting the breeders discount on everything from here on out. That's 10% off. Pretty cool! I guess 15 cats is the magic number for us! I say it's because they thought I was absolutely adorable and my charm won them over! Whatever the reason, it's a win-win situation for everyone involved! I found myself a home!!!
