Hemi (Hemington) was named for his Mom's love/obsession of Dodge Trucks and their delicious engines. When she was first introduced to Hemi, he curled up under hair and began to Purr SO loud, it instantly reminded her of a v6 hemi engine. His bursts of energy were so frequent that she knew Hemi was the perfect name.
He has blossomed and grew into a full grown V8! His energy is never ending and he sometimes, (We think) considers himself a little human. If there is water bottle lid to be found, Hemi is on duty to rid the world of the pesky bottle lids. He will toss, bat and carry around a bottle cap until it is confiscated due to lack of recognition. He has also been known to hoard hair elastics.
Hemi is the most photogenic of animals. He literally poses when he see's the camera. He always lays with his paws crossed, forever reminding all of his royal status. His manners are impeccable. He is very polite and vocal when happy. He answers when you talk to him with a happy flick of his very long tail.
By sizing standards, Hemi is quite the large Feline. He is incredibly long when lying down on his side. He, however, believes he is a tiny guy and can fit in the most cozy of places. He does well cramming himself into small spaces, despite his size. He is most often found curled in a laundry basket or at the end of the bed.
His favourite past time is "break" dancing in the bathtub. He will stretch out to his full size and move to the music only he can hear in quick spurts and flips. It is very entertaining to watch! He has been know to rock out to some Guitar Hero on occasion and really puts the moves on with his guitar.
Hemi is the Cat that makes you smile all the time. He knows he is adorable and has no qualms reminding you of such!
