My name is Squirtal, but I am usually just Squirt. I am a very special kitty. My Momma-Mia, myself and my brother were found in a cardboard box at Discovery Park by the barn. We had been left to the elements and the predators! Luckily, we were found by a nice person who called Desert Cat Rescue. My Momma-Mia was adopted as soon as we were old enough to be on our own. My brother, Hiney, and I are still looking for our forever homes.

My brother’s name has a story. First, her name was Hermione which became Himione when we discovered that he was a boy! Now, he is usually called His Hiney. You will meet my brother shortly. He is a pirate kitty!  That is funny, His Hiney, the pirate kitty.

I am the nicest kitty ever. I am so soft, you just want to pet me all the time. I like to be petted and I am friendly, but I am rather quiet. I mind my own business and just watch everyone else run and play. I am about 1.5 years old and I am spayed. I am not a lap kitty, but I think I might like to be if there was not so much competition.

I like to be with other cats and I do not mind dogs. I do not know how I feel about children. I think it would be fine as long as they are older and are not mean to me.

My adoption fee is only $25. If you are interested in adopting me, please send an email to for an adoption application. You can also like our page on Facebook and send us a message there.
