Alex adopted me a number of years ago. He actually belonged to the neighbor on the east side of me, yet spent hours hanging
out with his kitty friends that lived with my neighbors to the west. He traveled through my yard going back and forth between
home and friends.

At that time I had been laid off at work and was spending more time in my home office and patio area. Alex began spending more and more time on one of my Adirondack chairs, during which we had great conversations. He is very vocal and expressive. He also started to follow me into the house. He was unbelievably well mannered. I set out a water bowl for him. I was also rather allergic to him.

An allergy prescription and a year later, I set out a food bowl. I still cannot keep Alex in the house overnight (swollen yucky eyes and congestion issues). Yet he knows that he is welcome to join his kitty friends next door in a comfy kitty igloo in the kitties’ house. It’s a perfect arrangement.

My Buddy Alex's

best friend's

nine lives

have ended...

Sweet Squeek
or as he was also known...


succumbed to kidney failure.

Squeek was Alex's oldest friend 
and companion...
what a pair!

Squeek was the BEST house
monitor when I would
kittysit at his house.

He would be at the front 
door when I entered...
then he would lead the way into
each room
making sure that I 
turned the right lights on and
opened the window coverings
just so...

as he continued with 
a running dialogue of what
the other kitties had
been up to during the night.

His sweet face and squeeky meow will
be much missed
by his humans 
and Alex, Panther, and Miss Fluffy...
