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.
