For the week of March 2nd, “Squeakers” is our Pet Of
The Week”. Dianne Gaboury nominated her cat, and here’s
“This is Squeakers. She is almost four years old. We
adopted her from the Marquette Humane Society in June of
My kids are 15 & 18 and have always wanted a pet. I
have allergies, so it was not an option...or so I
thought. Last year, my daughter and I had been browsing
the Marquette Humane Society web site and were
basically, dreaming out loud. "This one is so
cute...oh, look at that one! And that one!" Somehow
she was able to talk me in to getting a cat. I knew I
didn't want a curtain climbing kitten, but I wasn't
totally opposed to a more "mature" cat who didn't
require too much. We (my son, daughter and me) decided
to head to the Humane Society on a Saturday morning. We
coo'ed over the cute little
kittens and aw'ed over the lazy, sleeping older cats.
We spent some time in the "visitation room" with a few
of the "inmates". As my son was leaning down to look in
the cage below Squeakers' cage, she reached out and
batted him on the top of the head. We took that as a
sign. We asked if we could spend a little time with her
and she was such a loveable baby girl, rubbing against
our legs and purring. We took her home and have been
spoiling her ever since. Well, "I" spoil her, or so I'm
told by my family. She is the first one I look for when
I get home from work each day. I think my kids are
spoiled of the attention she gets from me, but what can
I say? She doesn't want anything from me other than
loving...and I'm perfectly happy to give it to her.

The Week”. Just go back to the previous page, and fill
