If you are able to locate either on Amazon, Kindle, in the library or a used book store A Cat Named Squeeky you will never regret any effort made on your part.
I read this book in one night! The author, Vic Reskovic, has no other books to his name, but his account of how he and his wife came to adopt, and be adopted by a stray little girl kitty whose face, in his words, looked like it had it had been "dipped in a hot fudge sundae, with a cream coloured streak coming down the middle of its forehead and over its nose." Her eyes were so blue the author expected to see clouds in them! Part Siamese, this little girl was quite talkative and Vic and his wife Cindy named her "Squeeky"- a fitting name indeed. They didn't want a cat. But they fed her when ever she showed up. One day she just waked into their house when Vic held the door open. From her appropriation of a blue shawl to finally sleeping on their bed between them, Squeeky went from being a homeless stray to a kitty with two humans of her very own. This author has a humorous side to his writing. I often found myself smiling. I even laughed out loud a couple of times.
Squeaky lived for nineteen years with Vic and Cindy. Would all stray kitties were so fortunate as to find such accommodating humans to love them! You'll need a hanky at the very end, but every bit of the story is well worth any tears. We've all experienced what Vic and Cindy experienced at the passing of Squeeky. Vic has become an advocate for stray cats and lists several organizations in the back who he suggests might be helpful in finding a home for a stray, unless you don't wind up adopting him/her yourself. One of the organizations he lists is Best Friends Animal Sanctuary outside of Kanab, Utah. The largest no-kill shelter in the country, I know from personal experience that Best Friends is a wonderful place and a wonderful organization. Get this book and enjoy every minute of it!
