Happy birthday, professor! - The Dainty Squid

Happy birthday, professor!

Sunday, July 06, 2014

My little guy turns four today, rather our four year anniversary together is today. Four years ago today I was waiting in line to see The Smashing Pumpkins when my mom text me a picture of a tiny, sick kitten she had found in her driveway. I had always wanted a Siamese cat! The plan wasn't for me to keep him, but I fell in love. I was his from the second I saw him.
I legitimately think Professor is the best cat ever. He's a perfect companion. This sweet little guy could turn even the meanest, toughest, cat hater into a pile of mush. The only thing that's changed about this guy since he was a kitten is that he's darker. I can't believe how white he used to be! Other than that he's still the same cuddly, talkative, goofball who is always trying to get into the fridge. He has the sweetest little voice that breaks my heart into a million pieces every he meows. There's nothing this cat would love more than to lay in bed with me (or Jeff, his new best friend!) and cuddle all day.

A few of my favorite posts featuring Professor Stingray...
Kitty Video - the cutest video of The Professor vs. the mirror.
It's the little things... like making silly GIFs of your cat.
Reason #2745 I love cats -maybe he is a meerkat?
It's the little things... like walking into the bedroom and finding this kittenfest.
Have you ever seen a kitten play with yarn? - Just what it sounds like. My goodness, prepare yourself for the cuteness!
Kitten yawn in progress - Would you check out those tiny teeth?! Eeep!

Happy Birthday little guy! I'm so glad you're mine.
xoxo

  4. Do you ever wonder where he came from?! I always think that with rescue pets, how did they end up here? He sure is handsome.

    1. Oh absolutely! I'm so curious how he got there. He was such a tiny little baby. I always wonder if he had siblings! Like, where did they go? Did they survive? I sure hope so!

    2. Yeah! I wonder if maybe they were strays and because he was sick he got left behind or lost? Or maybe his mum dumped him?! I kind of hope he wasn't ditched by a human.

      He definitely was lucky you guys picked him up

  15. Awww he is adorable! I hope he had a lovely birthday :-)
    I just watched a documentary about cats & found out that Siamese cats get darker in the spots they are coldest, so if you live somewhere cold they will usually have darker fur - such an awesome breed!
