The Squid came to us as a teeny kitten, barely able to fit in my hand, from a fabulous local rescue, as a foster. We named her Jewelee, but because of her size, being quite bedraggled and pathetic and always finding a hiding spot, we nicknamed her The Squirt. "Anyone seen the Squirt? " Where's the Squirt?", was frequently heard in our home. Calling her made not the slightest difference as we established early on that our little girl is 100% deaf. Not surprisingly, her foster failed and she joined our furry family. Her name morphed into The Squid and it perfectly fits our Little Ms Attitude. Our whopping 16lb boy, Dooley and The Squid became inseparable and were always together. When Dooley passed of an incurable heart condition, The Squid mourned him and continues to miss her best buddy. Our furry family has grown and Our Little Squid Princess (who is at least partly Khahee Manee and therefore of Royal Blood and deserving of her title) continues to reign supreme. If The Squid wins any money, it will donated directly to Cat Rescue. Interesting factoid: The Squid has heterochromia (two different colored eyes). Humans can also have heterochromia and white, deaf cats often have different colored eyes.
