Replacing parquet tiles

I have about 10-15 parquet tiles that came loose due to a leaky pet water bowl. I have replacement tiles, but the only "parquet" adhesive I've been able to find is only available in a gallon tub. Is there anything available in smaller quantity that can be substituted? I'm planning on replacing the entire floor in the next year or two, so want something that will allow me to pull up the squares at that time. They are going in over a concrete slab.

Also, any tips on trimming the squares to fit?

These are wood parquet--like 12" x 12" ?
Try contact cement on one--see if it holds ok.
You can use a sander to trim edges.

PL Premium in a caulking tube. found at HD and Blowe's, in the paint section with the other caulking.

Modify a 6" putty knife, by making notches in it to spread the adhesive evenly and leave adhesive ridges. 1/8x1/8x1/8 should work fine.

Have a rag and premium Mineral Spirits(not paint thinner!) handy for oops'es and clean up.
