Squillion History

~ As the official shelter keeper of the VSquillions I am working on tracing the history of the VSquillions, aka Green Wall Shelter Kitties. If anyone has information about the history of the Squillions or would like to share your adoption story with me please contact me via email ~

~~ "Squillion means ceramic Squillion, which Derby did start the whole ball rolling with the first.  VSquillion means "virtual Squillion, which Sanjee did start" ~~ Information from Mom Robyn 3 May 2013 
Derby ~ Founder of the VSquillions,
aka Green Wall Shelter Kitties.
First one found 28 February 2006 
Finder of the Squillions ~ Sanjee & Robyn
1. Squillions were first called Green Wall Shelter Kitties. Not sure when the name was changed. Theycame from Walgreen's and were made in China, I believe. That's how they originally had the name "Green Wall Shelter Kitties". Derby found Virginia (the first one) and founded the Squillions. Derby is the founder of the Squillions (ceramic ones) I believe, also the founder of the mini-Squillions. ~ Information from Robyn ~
2. 29 February 2006 ~ First post about Squillions Derby and his friend Vir-ginger started it back on 28 February 2006, and Vir-ginger started going outside and repurrting on what she saw." ( I think Derby is the founder of the Squillions and will post that information once I receive confirmation.)
