Squillions on Saturday

We have a "virtual" Squillion named Pinky Schwinn living on our bloggie whom we adopted from the Cat Blogosphere Shelter, but we've also got four real, live Squillions that live in the yard.

Mom got them for us years ago. That might explain why our Squillions look so much smaller (and kind of different) from other cats' Squillions that we've seen.

We've named them:

(kneeling in front) Angus Jellybean;
(left to right) FooFoo Trixiebelle, Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla, and Sigmund Fraudulent.



Our Squillions like livin' in the yard where they can watch over the recycling bins and enjoy the fragrances of Mom's night-blooming jasmine and myriad rosebushes. They also get to play with the potato bugs. FooFoo Trixiebelle told me that she saw a LIZARD out there once. Ooooo ... furry scary!



I've invited the "outdoor" Squillions inside to have some Tempations®, but they don't seem furry interested in treats. Odd ...

We think those are nice squillions and The Big Thing says he might like to hasve a coupla guardian squillions in the garden (all those voles and mousies when we are inside at night).

Where do they come from? His "gotcha" day (as he describes it) is coming up soon an we would like to get him a present...

pretty and fun! i'm glad they like to be outdoors where they can enjoy the nighttime smells.

while it does seem odd that they don't want treats, it does mean more temptations for you!

Your squillions are adorable. Mommy says she wants one now. It would be nice to have some company in the yard that isn't amphibian. Mommy's been adding lots of frogs because she says they remind her of Daddy who she says she finally found after kissing so many of them.

Those squillions are awfully cute! I wish Mom could find some to put in our backyard so I would visit them when I go out for my walks.

Mom found our Squillions at Rite Aid about four years ago. They were only about $2 each and are probably still available in other drug stores. Keep an eye out and you might be able to find some Squillions of your own!

NOT POTATO BUGS! DKM is totally scared of potato bugs. They freak her out.
