Kitty the ResQter

Just looking at me, you would think I’m an adorable kitten.

And it’s true, I am.

But, I’m more than cute, I’m a surrogate mother to squirrels.

When they are very tiny, they don’t try to run away, so you can cuddle them all you like, even when you get distracted by a strange noise or flicker of light.

One day, my little friend will be big and frolic in the trees. He won’t have the time to let me groom him. I’m making the most of it right now.

This takes ResQte to a WHOLE NOTHER LEVEL, Star Foxy!

  13. Is the kitteh bathing the skwerl? Or basting him? 😯

  14. SlaveToCat says:

    The next step on the evolutionary ladder. Cats begin to raise squirrels and train dogs to herd them.

    LOL, that’s the second reference to that scene in “Ghostbusters” that I’ve read in the last five minutes, on different sites.

  17. I was wondering if anyone would get the reference. Ghostbusters is old enough that they are showing it on American Movie Classics now. Man, I feel old.

  18. Veggie mom says:

    Yes. It’s true. “Ghostbusters” is a classic.

  19. I saw it here
    The squirrel comes in through the doggy door.

  28. It’s nuts!

  29. “cleanup in cubicle 4 please” cuz i just melted into a big puddle of goop.

  30. Magic Marker fumes here.

  31. I know what you mean. An intern last year asked “who you gonna call” when discussing a work question – and my coworker and I had to explain to him why we simultaneously yelled “Ghostbusters!” and then burst out laughing.

  32. Hauls out the pail and mop and heads over to cubicle 4…

  33. Yes. Hit my birthday in August.

  34. I luv u fud.

  35. That kitten is the spitting image of a kitten i saw recently. Without baby squirrel attachment natch.
