Whatcha gonna do...
Whatcha gonna do when your meowmy comes for you....?
Claiming the COPS theme song for their own, my pals Squeaky and Elvis make getting into mischief a top priority. They're fun and funny. So please welcome the bad boys you know as @SqueakyElvis.
How old were you when you moved in with your family? Were you a rescue?
We were 6 months old. We are rescues from Kansas. Our birth mom had us under a porch then moved us next door inside. Just yowled for the door to be opened and moved us into a closet in the back room. This house was owned by the sister of our foster mom whom brought us and a sister to Oklahoma. She kept our sister Gracie and gave us, Squeaky & Elvis, to mommy. Mommy just lost Kitty the year before and The Bandit the month before. She said no before to taking us before the Bandit died, but our names came up in random conversions so she relented and took us in. It has been a party every since.
What breed are you?
Hmmm…after much discussion we must be short hair domestics.
What inspired your hoomans to name you?
Our foster parents named us. Squeaky was named because he talked all the time. Elvis was named because he shook, rattled & rolled through the house. Mommy added Presley.
Do you have siblings? Do you get along?
We are blood brothers, so we have tiffs. When we first came, we had sissy Smokey whom died earlier this year. She hated us and there were tiffs. Mommy always broke them up so she wouldn’t hurt us. MOL.
How would you describe your personality?
Elvis is the reserved one whom investigates the situation before jumping in. Squeaky is the opposite. He just jumps into anything with reservation.
Do you have a mischief incident that is still talked about?
There are so many… (Herman settles in for a good story) we are known for licking love fests turning into all out brawls. Squeaky is known to pull a blanket through the house now & then with his teeth. We’ve broken too many things to count. Probably the funniest was when playing shower curtain game with mommy. Elvis just pawed the curtain, but me Squeaky thought this game was too tame: why just paw it when you can sits back & throw both paws onto the curtain. The problem was I pulled the curtain down while mommy was showering. (Herman rolls on floor, laughing) Oops! Scared Elvis so bad he hid behind the toilet every time the water was turned on for two months. MOL! We’ve also napped on the stove and you know... checked out what was cooking in the pots while they were on the stove. Taste testing is a must in this household.
Laying in bed and licking mommy showing her we love her & accept her as one of our own. Elvis is really cute when sleepy.
Complete this sentence: If I had opposable thumbs, I would…
Rule the world or just open every door in the house for the fun of it.
Who are 3 famous animals you’d most like to sniff?
Puss n Boots, Felix the cat, Garfield
Dogs probably...Marduke…we hissed at & spat at the dogs at our grandparents. So probably any dog.
What is the most interesting place in your home and why?
Fireplace. We’ve never had one & mommy put up a baby gate to keep us out of it. You know a mommy puts something up to keep it out it must be a great spot to check out.
Ohhhh yeah! Have you ever caught something edible? Did you eat it?
Bugs…we pull out cricket’s legs but haven’t ate one yet.
Do you have any health issues?
We have had UTI, but other than that we healthy as two draft horses. We eat c/d to help with crystals.
Do you like to be brushed, have your nails trimmed?
We do like to be brush occasionally, especially when we can chew on the comb.
What is your relationship like with your veterinarian?
OMC! Well let us tell you...we don’t like that man. Squeaky hisses every time, but Elvis turns into Satan. He screams bloody murder the whole time. Mommy had to cover her ears the last time. She knew cats could scream but holy moly, can Elvis scream at the vet.
Do you like certain hoomans outside of your family?
Yes. We are shy are first. Squeaky loves being petted. We love our grandparents.
What are your favorite foods and toys?
We just eat our kibble, not much into wet foods or treats. Squeaky has nommed human food a couple of times. All toys are our favorites. Squeaky loves being in the fabric cube and having mommy spin him to point he flies through the air. The new floors have made all our toys the best to play with. We push mommy’s shoes under the couch. Elvis loves playing red dot but darn if he can catch it.
Have you ever eaten anything that your hooman thought strange?
Not really we guess. We eaten fur & hair.
Have you ever chewed or destroyed something that upset your hooman?
Um….(blushes) We broke martini glasses our first week. Broke a lamp mommy had to throw it away. Bulbs & lamps have a short life around us. We did...or rather Elvis widdled outside the litter box in our old house now rental house. Mom had to replace the carpet for the tenants. She threaten to hang us by our toe nails, but we threw on the charm and she was putty in our paws.
What is your birth date, or Gotcha Day date?
We were born in April. Our gotcha day is in December
Do you celebrate your special date?
Of course we do.
We were on Twitter not long after coming to live with mommy. We are members of the WLF, BBOT, AOA & SFCF. We also on Facebook.
What are you known for on Twitter by your Anipal furends?
Giving each other brotherly love then brawling. Squeaky known for his blanket pulling.

Yes. I believe past kitties have visited us by jumping on the bed & lying down.
Have you ever traveled with your pet? If so, please give me an adventure story
Not often. Lately only to my parent’s house. The boy travel pretty good once they are in the carrier. I made several trips back & forth when I lived in Texas with the girls. Kitty always barfed and the Bandit always pooped & peed before pulling out of the parking space.
Tell me about your first pet, and how many have you had in your lifetime?
Smokey was my first cat. She was a Siamese. My dad is a retired teacher. One day a student found a kitten on the way to school and put her in his locker. They heard the meows and opened up the locker. My dad was the only one there who didn’t have a cat, so he took her. I’ve had 8 cats including Elvis & Squeaky. Lots of horses. Parker lived to 31 and the Mare to 21.
Why did you choose Squeaky & Elvis Presley to Tweet for instead of another pet?
They are the most interesting and outrageous cats I’ve had. They are always doing something funny or madding. The personalities are so unique.
Do you have other Twitter accounts?
Millie does @milliemisstidy
What is a typical day for you, starting when your pets want breakfast?
They have an automatic feeder that goes off at 5:30am, then 1pm for lunch & 8pm for dinner. Don’t know what I did before automatic feeders. I shower & get ready for work , work then come home & watch TV with the boys.
My mom gasped when you mentioned automatic feeder. She never thought about those...but she'd need so many...and of course we'd eat ourselves sick! Oh well!
Thankew Squeak, Elvis and meowmy, Julie for a wonderpurr intermew! Yay!
