Gemini


Yes, Gemini, it's finally your turn.  Cheysuli let me know several days ago that Gemini was feeling left out because I hadn't written a limerick for her yet.  Gemini has been coming by every day since then to check.  Gemini is about 2 1/2 years old now.  Her Mom found her as a tiny kitten, about four weeks old, hiding in the yard, but mewing pitifully.  Her Mom had just lost two older cats and the house was feeling rather lonesome with just Georgia around.  Her Mom brought her inside and took her to the vet to check for diseases and Gemini was in good health, but very hungry and lonely.  Gemini fit right in quite quickly and soon became very fond of Georgia.  Gemini got her name as an anagram from the names of the two cats who had died just before she showed up.  It seemed an appropriate name, as she was taking the place of two cats.  Gemini loved to play with Georgia and she still hasn't gotten used to the idea that Georgia has gotten quite old now and can't play like she used to.  Gemini still gives Georgia gentle head butts, but now Georgia falls over when butted.  Gemini took to catnip quite early in life and soon began dropping her catnip mice in her water bowl.  Maybe she was making catnip tea?  Gemini has never quite gotten over her initial fear of people and will be quite shy when visitors come over. She still loves her toys and will play at every opportunity.  She lets her Mom know that she wants attention by getting between her Mom and the computer monitor.  She loves to go outside on her harness.  She got out by herself this past summer through a hole in the screen door that some visiting woofies had chewed.  Once out, her Mom thinks that she couldn't get back in, as she found some of Gemini's fur in the screen.  She was gone for a couple of days, but got found again just as she had been found the first time.  She was hiding near the fence and mewing pitifully.  The screen door has been fixed and Gemini seems content to stick with going out on her harness.

                                 Gemini is a cat who is still partly feral.
                                 She doesn't much care for wearing apparel.
                                         She wants Mom's attention,
                                         She's not shy to mention,
                                 But she's shy with strangers 'cause she's still partly feral.

I like Gemini a lot. It was very scairty when she went missing! I think you are right, she does not care for wearing apparel. Even though she is very beautiful.

It is hard to picture Gemini skinny from that photo!

I am glad you fixed that screen, because I don't think Gemini really wants to go outside without a harness.

Oh thank you thank you thank you!!!!

That was so nice of you to do a limerick about me.

I am still actually a very skinny cat. I just have furs! Even the vet was surprised at how tiny I am under my furs!

You know she will be insufferable now...

Hi Karen Jo,
I'm MoMo, relatively new to the blogosphere. You write limericks? How cool! I saw your offer on Roscoe and Opus's pizza party and I just loooooooooove rubs and scritchies! I am that long haired grey tabby curled up by the corner. Of course you can visit me at my bloggie as well.
Purrrrs,
MoMo

Gemini we love you! That is such a perfect limerick for you. And we were all so worried when she got out and couldn't be found. I (Samantha) understand, all us girls with floofy fur are always thought to be fat! But we are just floofy!!
Your FL furiends,

Gemini said...

Oh you had it right Karen, I was about 4 weeks old when Momma found me. I was furry tiny!
