An adorable calico kitten, Squish, is loving life thanks to rescuers at CAAT Friends. Squish and so many adorable kittens are waiting for homes, and it’s hard to believe somebody hasn’t scooped them up. [Previously written, unconfirmed if still available] They’re insanely cute and will give a lucky family a lifetime of companionship.
In the latest Squish post, you can see this almost 8-week-old kitten is about as relaxed and comfortable as a kitten could be. Squish’s photo screams, “Draw me like one of your French girls,” from Titanic.
Squish Had a Dangerous Start to Life
Squish is the perfect kitten, ready to be squished with love by her humans.
But this kitten’s life started out dangerously, as she was running in the road in a busy suburb of Los Angeles. Fortunately, a Good Samaritan found her and responsibly brought her to the rescuers. Despite the harrowing experience, Squish made it, beating the odds.
One might think such a scary start to life would have squashed Squish’s purrsonality. But kittens are incredibly resilient, and she is fearless and full of love with everyone around her. What a brave little lady.
“She is an adorable little lady, and she knows it. She is still in her super playful stage and has not found a toy she doesn’t like,” the rescuers shared.
Squish the Happy Little Girl
In foster care, Squish is adventurous, playful, and friendly with the bigger cats.
“She has no problem pulling out all the toys from her toy box. She gets along great with the big kitties,” they shared. “Her favorite thing is to play with her Fostercat-daddy’s tail. She hasn’t met any doggos yet, but I’m sure she would adjust well to one.”
Kittens, like kids, have incredible energy, one reason which is why it’s best to adopt in pairs. That way, they have a playmate to go bonkers with. That means they will eventually get tuckered out and become peaceful little love muffins.
“When she finally tuckers herself out, she likes to curl up for some evening snuggles. We love snuggles, until we want to play. She really is a happy little girl who loves to be with her people,” CAAT Friends shared.
Now, someone in the LA area could bring Squish or an equally adorbs kitten or cat home. As with most kittens, adopting in pairs is the best plan, but she’s so outgoing that the rescuers suggest she could also grow up with “another cat or cat-friendly dog.”

A Beautiful Calico Cat Named Pranee
Although kittens are probably the cutest thing on Earth as far as we’re concerned, don’t forget that precious older cats are ideal companions.
For instance, here’s Pranee, another purrfect calico cat. Here is your gal for a home where someone wants a chill kitty who doesn’t need constant attention. She’ll be happy to hang out quietly in the room and observe.
“This beautiful calico teen has a quiet sensibility, is shy, but loves other cats and playing with toys! She likes to be in the same room as everyone and hang out; she just often prefers to be just out of reach. She is extremely curious, very athletic and not aggressive in any way. She likes her personal space, except if you have treats or are eating a turkey sandwich,” shared CAAT Friends.
Shy Cat Who Loves Other Kitties
Since Pranee is shy and prefers the company of women, who she will purr loudly for.
Like many senior cats, Pranee needs someone who understands her and treats her lovingly and gently.
Also, she loves other kittens and cats, so purrhaps she would be a great pairing with a kitten like Squish? Or maybe someone out there has a lonely kitty who needs some company from a gentle soul?
“Pranee would do well in a smaller, quieter household and with someone who understands her. She prefers women; she likes to sit and watch tv or what is going on around the house, hanging in her basket or hammock, or under the coffee table. She makes the cutest noises when she plays with her toys and really loves other cats. She would make a great addition to a household with a lonely cat who’s looking for a companion.”
Just think, someone out there is the purrfect match for a senior kitty like Pranee.
“We are looking for a patient adopter who will love Pranee for who she is. We know every kitty has their purrfect adopter out there, and we have found the perfect homes for even super shy cats. And we know that home will be found for this beauty as well.”
It’s exciting to think Pranee, Squish, or another rescue could find an ideal home with someone reading this right now! If so, let us know in the comments. You can find out more on CAAT Friends’ Instagram, Facebook, or website.
