“It was the summer of 1999. My sister and I had just returned home from a month long trip around the United States and decided to take a walk around our neighborhood, along with my best friend. We had grown up on a particular street in the neighborhood, moved away for a matter of a few years, then moved back to the same neighborhood on a different street. That day, we decided to check out our old house that we grew up in. No one was living in it at the time, so we were able to walk around it. At one point my friend and I had built a half pipe in the backyard, so we walked back to see if it was still there.

We started to hear a tiny little squeak coming from somewhere close by and were trying for a while to find where it was coming from. I noticed a car tire leaning up against the wall and walked over to check it out and lo and behold we found the cutest little kitten laying inside, seemingly abandoned from its mother.

My sister said, “I’ve got to keep her!”, and took her on the spot.
The house was on Mandarin Drive, so we decided to name her Mandarin, but within a month my sister’s boyfriend named her Skweeker because she was the most talkative cat we had ever met. After all, that is how we found her!

We lived in Florida at the time, and my sister kept her for a few years and then they moved up to New York City. I followed soon after and lived with them for a while until they decided to finally move back to Florida in 2006. Upon doing so, my sister gave me Skweeker because she knew how much I loved her and she had another cat at the time and couldn’t really be bothered with multiple cats and a long move, so she’s been mine ever since. We figured she had been born around July, 1999, so she’s a grandma at this point and the love of my life!”
