So our set of twins is now complete! Anyone suggesting triplets will be summarily blocked. Meet "Name to be determined". We have a short list, and it's probably not going to be a breaking bad name, simply because I'm not crazy about any of the female names left. Mashup names are important to this process. I started the adoption on this little girl about two weeks ago, and I'm so glad to have her home. She was adopted through a purebred rescue, although she's definitely a mix. We picked her up at her foster home in Santa Cruz today. She's incredibly sweet, vocal, and very friendly. She's between 4-5 months old. I know I'm not telling you everything you want to hear, so please feel free to ask questions and I will answer them and or update this caption. And of course the #teamgarytrivia answer is Hank, who is currently sitting by the bathroom door lashing out at everyone who walks by. Also, beard.


#TeamGaryTrivia wtf edition: who will be the most pissed that this mini Margo will be coming home with me today? #thisisatrickquestion


Our #TeamGaryTrivia blanket sucker is Hank, who has done it every day since the day we brought him home. Dad says it's because we got Gus so quickly after Hank that he didn't have a chance to be the baby. #Hanksforthewetspot #WeAreAllGary



#TeamGaryTrivia, Why is This All Wet Edition... Which team member sucks on a blankie every damn night?


Margo ran away with the #TeamGaryTrivia vote, so here's a neener from the Miss herself. In order of softness:
1. Margo - her whole body feels like that little spot at the base of a cat's ear. Go feel that if you haven't.
2. Gary - actually a pretty close second, he has a very fine textured, soft undercoat which also makes him a shedding nightmare.
3. Hank - when I think of his fur, "fuzzy" comes to mind.
4. Jesse - he's got the shortest hair of all, and it's very sleek, almost like he's been dipped in grease. Soft isn't the word for it.
5. Gus - his fur is quite coarse. He may grow out of that, the texture reminds me of Gary's fur when he was younger.


Today's #TeamGaryTrivia comes from @stacisturrock & @stephanieandhiggs : Who has the softest fur? I'll run them down in order tomorrow. #calmdowngus



When Gary's not sleeping, he's inflicting mass casualties. Kill list is as follows: (Disclaimer: I do not "let" my cats kill wildlife, I try to prevent it, and sometimes I fail)
1. Gary - 3 fruit rats in the backyard. The neighbor cut down the grapefruit tree they frequented and suddenly they were everywhere.
Co-maimed a lizard. #teamgargo
2. Margo - 1 giant bluejay when she was about a year old. The bluejay's family retaliated and took a small chunk out of her head.
Co-maimed a lizard. #teammary
3. Hank - 1 fruit rat. He gave it to me as a gift.
4. Gus - zip
5. Jesse - zilch.


Thank you guys for all the great suggestions for #TeamGaryTrivia... This one is from @twostickbugs : Who is the hunter of the group? So, excluding bugs, who has the highest body count? I'll give you the list of known casualties tonight.


It's my little angel Gary, aka Mister Insister, who scratched the couch twice, howled at me, jumped on me and grabbed my arm so he could nip me over and over due to the betrayal of watching TV instead of taking him outside. #TeamGaryTrivia photo by @ericalikescats



#TeamGaryTrivia , Will I Ever Finish This Series edition. Who's the absolute worst pest when you're trying to watch a mere 47 minute episode of the Handmaid's Tale and mfers gotta go outside? Edited to add: they're all jerks, but one towers above the rest in these situations. A certain nickname is a clue.


Of course it's Gus, you should know by now he has several screws loose. And special congrats to @eigna728 Angie, your losing streak is intact, and your profanity laced comments when you guess wrong are one of my favorite things about #TeamGaryTrivia
Disclaimer: the cactus is completely non toxic, yadda, yadda, yadda.


#TeamGaryTrivia , finally Friday edition: Who chews the spines on our giant Old Man Cactus?



Jesse meets me in the hallway every evening, and runs to the cat room, looking back to make sure I'm following. If I don't give him a couple of minutes like this, he'll chase me and make me come back before he'll eat his crunchies. #TeamGaryTrivia #IsThatAHemi


#TeamGaryTrivia all the stuff I gotta do edition: Who insists that I pet and love on them while they are eating their crunchy snack, and will chase me down if I don't?


Most of you guessed that Gary was the number one snuggler in the house... He needs snuggles like Trump needs Twitter. Only two people guessed the snuggling hierarchy correctly, and I blame Hank. Here it is:
1 Gary
2 Hank (no, really)
3 Jesse
4 Gus
5 Margo
I'm going to post each of their snuggling habits separately this week because why the hell not. The first to guess was @erinprelypchan, second was @felineanddandy - I have something for both of you. Thanks for indulging me in #TeamGaryTrivia, I really appreciate the participation, and let me know if you'd like more prize giveaways, I know this one was difficult.



#TeamGaryTrivia : Rank the members of Team Gary in order of willingness to snuggle with the peeps. #BecauseGary #BecauseLucas #LucasForTheWin


#TeamGaryTrivia, rank them edition: rank the members of team Gary in order of willingness to snuggle with the peeps. The first person to get it right gets a team Gary gift from me.


Jesse is Gary's dingleberry. Gary is usually very patient with the dingleberry, letting it fall off naturally, but sometimes it's been there so long that he has to take measures to remove it. #TeamGaryTrivia



#TeamGaryTrivia Somebody Get That Offa Me Edition: Who is called The Dingleberry because they stick to a certain other member like, well, a dingleberry?


It's Gus who panics when the goodness is on my finger but will bravely lick the Ciao stick even though it pains him to do so. Dry treats are just as stressful and often fall out of his mouth. #teamgarytrivia


#teamgarytrivia foodie Friday edition: who is the only one who has a problem eating from my hand, especially if it's something lickable?


Of course it's the Gare Bear. He even likes me to offer up my arm as a stepping stool. #mrcongeniality I think Gus ran away with the vote... Honestly, he's the absolute worst, stomping the crap out of us multiple times per night. #teamgarytrivia


#teamgarytrivia , you're sitting on the floor for GOT edition:
Which member of team Gary, when snuggling with the humans, realizes they are going to be stepping on another living being and avoids knocking the wind out of us, smashing our bits, and generally causing pain as they step on us?


The most obvious answer is often the correct one... While Hank does not eat on a schedule, he clearly poops on schedule... When everyone else is eating. If Hank wore pants, he would have his hand in them Al Bundy style, 24/7. #occamsrazor #teamgarytrivia #hanksalot #stanksalot


#teamgarytrivia time: Who refuses to eat with the rest of the crew and more often than not drops a bomb in the litter box whilst the others are dining? #yougotthis


For the approximately 20 people who guessed Margo, pat yourself on the back. For @plant_snob who said "Why would anybody guess Margo", you have earned her disdain for at least 24 hours. When Margo is on the top of the couch and I go to give her some loving, she always shoves her face in mine until we touch noses. Maybe I'll get it on video someday. #teamgarytrivia


How about a little #teamgarytrivia?
Who always wants to rub noses with me while getting their scritches on?


It's Gus that Margo hates only slightly less than Hank. He's flummoxed by it because I guess he doesn't remember that he chases her around the house while she hisses and snarls at least a couple of times a week, and Margo can hold a serious grudge. #teamgarytrivia


Welcome to Team Gary trivia, Margoyle Monday edition: You should all know by now how much Margo hates Hank, but who is #2 on her shit list? #seewhatididthere #teamgarytrivia


It's Mr. Insister that makes sure I don't get more that two hours of sleep at a time, for various reasons. The first visit is to snuggle. The next 3 involve a glass of water, a possible trip outside (nope, but good on you for giving it a shot) and of course a snack. #teamgarytrivia
