Tabby Tuesday

img_0673a.JPGOh boy! I have been tagged by TWO cats for different memes!  And I have to do them today.  At any rate, Chey tagged Ping for the 7 random facts and so he tagged me. Here are the rules:

The guidelines for this tag:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules
2. Write some facts about yourself: some random, some weird, some just plain fun.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them)
4. Let those 7 people know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.
The challenge is to keep it interesting without making the reader think “Um, too much information…”

So seeing Rascal tagged me for how I got my name, I will make that item #1.

1.  I’m named Gemini because Momma had just lost two cats who were really old within 10 days of each other.   Then she found me.   The Almost Dad put both of their names (Ingold Inglorion and Simone) into a program that would sort the letters and mix them up and figure out what sorts of words could be made.   Anyway, although the Almost Dad liked Soiling Demon, Momma said Gemini was best.  See Gemini is the twins and I had to fill the shoes of two great cats.  Also, she said it was because I would always hiss and spit before I’d start purring when I was a baby.

2.  I don’t like canned food. I like my crunchies.

3. I’m almost feral. I am very afraid of all people, except Momma and now the Almost Dad.   I did let the pet sitter see me, which is a huge deal though.

4. I am actually a very tiny cat under all the fur. I even surprised the vet with how tiny I am. I weigh less than Cheysuli.

5. I have very large kitty toes.

6.  Although I am not much of a lap cat, I come and visit Momma most mornings and purr and need my paws on her.

7.  I am a great bug hunter.

I think so many cats have already been tagged for this, I  don’t know who else to tag.  If you want to play, consider yourself tagged!


  1. You do not like canned food? I have a hard time believing this. I do not ever get stinky goodness anymore, but oh how I remember it.

  2. wow, we didn’t know you was so tiny! you haf a lot of floof! um, that’s not to imply that we thought you was, um, you know, NOT tiny. ::sigh:: you’re cute!

  3. Dear Gemini,
    I think you and I must have some of the same kind of genes. I am very ginger and floofy-furry, and have fur growing between my big toes, as well as out of my ears! But there is a slender cat under all the floof. I eat well, so my MOM says most of my food goes into growing all that fur! Fur is protein too 🙂 Trouble is, all the fur makes for lots of hairballs, in spite of much brushing by my DAD. Do you hack up hairballs too?

    I sometimes like my canned foods, but sometimes turn my nose up at it and only eat my crunchies. Sometimes MOM puts the crunchies in a crunchie-feeder-tower and then I play with them, using my left paw to take them out onto the floor to eat them (I guess I am left-pawed).

    I think I have actually given 7 facts about myself, even though I didn’t number them!

    Meezers, I love the “um, you know, NOT tiny” instead of just saying FAT! I also think Gemini is very cute, so we may have some “ahem” “male” cat competition here.

  4. That is so wonderful to get to know more about you! I prefer crunchies too…but I will always demand whatever is in less supply..and that could include wet food sometimes!

  5. Gemini, that is a wonderful name for you, and I liked learning how you got your name. I think Soiling Demon is a very funny and silly name, but it would not suit you at all.

  6. Gemini, I enjoyed learning more about you, especially how you acquired your name. You are very floofy indeed!

  7. Hahaha it would haf been funny if yoo wuz called Soiling Demon, Gemini is much better. That wuz good hearing how yoo got yer name.

  8. *sigh
    I gotta to see a booteefull pixchur of my gorjuss Gemini. Oh she is so mar-velvet!
    I didant knoos dat wuz how yu gots yur purrfect name, it is so sweet to fink it wuz becuz yu were filling da paws of two wonderfull kitties.

  9. Ah, a very clever way to combine the memes. That said, it’s a good thing your mom overruled your almost dad in the name department. And I’m with you on the canned food vs. crunchies. Crunchies are best.

  10. hey Chey!
    thanks for doing me the favour of the free publicity! ise really appreciate it very very much.

    hey Gemini!
    i think Soiled Demon is kind of cute 🙂 but Gemini is better…much better. my meowmie had One THat Went Before that looked a little like you, he was called Bogwhoppit and was bootiful, so bootiful that everyone though he was a girl cat! despite his size!


  11. Great Memes Gemini! We will accept your offer and do both the memes as we haven’t been tagged yet, probably on Thursday or Friday. I’m like you, everyone think I’m heavy until they pick me us. We are just floofy girls!! I like crunchies, too. Wow, we are a lot alike. (Sam) And then everyone thinks Tigger is skinny, until they pick him up. He weighs a ton! (hehe)
    Your FL furiends,

  12. Gemini, you’re a cat after my own heart. I am a great bug hunter too, especially moths – yummy. Say Hi to Chey for me.


  13. Hi! We think your name is perfect! You are a very fluffy kitty! Seaborne is too! Thanks for visiting our blog. We snuck down to the new computer…don’t tell Mommy! 🙂

  14. Awwww, Gemini, you sound like such a sweet kitty! And I love huntin’ buggies, too — it’s one of my furry fav’rit thingies to do!

    Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

  15. That extra floof is helpful Gemini. And you are beautiful too!!

  16. You have great floofy fur, Gemini–you look quite majestic. I would never have guessed that you are a feather-weight!
    Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

  17. Good thing Almost Dad was not in charge of naming you.Mom says they should not be in charge of most things around the house.Heehee

  18. We are glad that you are Gemini, rather than Soiling Demon! Our mom has veto power over our dad on lots of things, including names. He wanted Willow to be named Spike… She doesn’t look like a Spike.

  19. We are glad that your mom named you, Gemini. That is a great name and we enjoyed hearing how you got it.

  20. Great meme! Au is very shy too but he’s learned to make a few friends.

  21. I liked learning more about you. That is a very bee-yoo-tee-ful picture of you. It really shows off your luxurious whiskies and ear furs.
