The Pet Tag.

I’ve always been a cat lady (I had to delete Snapchat because I had too many cat pics.), but I’ve never properly introduced my pet of almost 3 years. I found the tag here.


  1. What is your pet’s name? Her “Christian name”, as my mom calls it, is Midget, but we all call her Midge or Margaret. 
  2. How did you come up with the name? Does it have any specific significance? My dad came up with it because she’s a very tiny cat. People ask me if she’s a kitten all the time. Midge is short for Margaret. 
  3. How old is your pet? She’s 3. We think. 
  4. When did you get your pet? December 2014. 
  5. What breed is your pet? Tabby. 
  6. How old were you when you got your pet? 16
  7. How did you get your pet? She was wandering around in our yard. It was freezing, so we brought her in. She was either very lost or the neighbors dumped her at our house. Either way, no one came looking for her, so she’s ours. 
  8. What is your pets’ favorite food? She likes chicken flavored cat foods, any kind of lunchmeat, and the pork from fried rice. 
  9. What is your pet’s favorite game? She’s pretty lazy, but she loves mice on a string. She’ll pack them around. 
  10. What is your favorite thing to do together? Curl up with a fuzzy blanket. 
  11. Do you go outdoors? If yes, where is your favorite place to go together? I’ve tried letting her explore outside, but she runs toward the road and hisses at every living creature in existence on her way there. 
  12. What is a bad habit that your pet has? I’ve found her sleeping in the litterbox on occasion. Even after she’s used it. 
  13. What is the best thing about your pet? She tolerates my snuggling. 
  14. What is the naughtiest thing your pet has ever done? She loves to pick fights. She made one of my outdoor cats give me a tennis ball sized bruise on my leg. Midge attacked her, who in turn attacked me. 
  15. What is the funniest memory involving your pet? She likes to sit in the window next to the toilet. Sometimes, you can’t get the lid closed before she decides to use it to help her jump.
  16. What is the best memory involving your pet? Finding her. I was having the absolute worst day in my worst year of high school. It may sound stupid, but she really helped me get through a lot. 
  17. What is the hardest thing about being a pet owner? Pets are expensive, and being there when they die really puts a toll on you. 
  18. What is the most rewarding thing about being a pet owner? The look in your pet’s eyes. She likes living with me. I think. 
  19. Does your pet have a nickname? What is it? Margaret, Buttface, Chub, my dad calls her Mags. 
  20. Have you ever taught your pet any tricks if so, what? Cats don’t learn tricks very well. Midge is pretty good at hunting, and loves to bring me cricket corpses. 90% of my “presents” are decapitated. Don’t know if this is a threat, or if the heads are her favorite.
