In Greek mythology, Gemini is associated with the myth of Castor and Pollux. Pollux was the son of Zeus, who seduced Leda, while Castor was the son of Tyndareus, the king of Sparta and Leda's husband. The brothers were very dear to each other. When Castor died, because he was a mortal, Pollux begged his father Zeus to give Castor immortality, which was done through uniting them together in the heavens.
Gemini are the lucky ones, but life can be very, very difficult for them - this sign is not only paired, which means it is full of internal contradictions, but also because its fixed stars, named after Divine Twins, are also very different.
In Universe Castor, the Big Brother star, is an entire system of four hot white stars and two fading red dwarfs. Pollux is a cooling orange-red giant. The craving for the adventures and escapades of Castor is immediately restrained by the prudence of Pollux. Such a life could turn into a real nightmare, but the element of the Air, by the streams of its ether, connects the Great Twins into a single whole, turning problems and contradictions into easily solves tasks, which makes Gemini (unlike Pisces - also a pair sign) one of the most pleasant signs in communication.

With this information, one can discover the astrological traits that describe the cat, such as their independence, diva-like tendencies, sense of humor, intelligence, and more. Additionally, it's also important to consider the astrological relationship between cats and plants...
In the photo above: You met before Georgie and Philemon but you probably didn't know they were brothers. Not twins, because they were from litters following each other, so Georgie is the older brother. But they both are very smart, maybe their mother taught them the same tricks.
Photo below: Wesley and Marco are actually real twins... but they are so different! Fat and skinny, lazy and crazy, quiet and loud, velvet and fluffy. But they are both very sweet and loving!
Gemini cats are known for their exceptional communication skills. They are undoubtedly quite the chatty felines! With a diverse repertoire of meows, and it's up to us humans to decipher their messages.

If you happen to leave paint around, be prepared for Gemini cats to step in it and leave paw print messages around the house. It's their way of communicating in a feline code that may elude our comprehension.
The Gemini cat is enthusiastic and always ready for some fun, consistently in touch with their inner-kitten. If you have a Gemini cat, you've probably noticed their high level of intelligence.

The Gemini cat has an uncanny ability to uncover hidden things.
Geminis are also "computer cats" like many other felines, insisting on lounging on laptops or sprawling across keyboards. However, Gemini cats take it a step further—they have a genuine affinity for technology, making them the zodiac sign most likely to become YouTube stars. One of their favorite pastimes is watching other cats on the internet and attempting to engage with them. They are natural communicators, friendly companions, and technologically savvy.
If you wish to have some uninterrupted time for work while keeping the Gemini cat occupied, consider turning on the TV with their favorite program (which may not necessarily be Animal Planet, as some cats enjoy thrillers, melodramas, or even sporting events) or provide them with a separate laptop equipped with online YouTube access.
Gemini cats have a tendency to appear cartoon-like due to their penchant for striking poses. You can almost see a thought bubble above their heads - silent but still communicating. They are peaceful and non-aggressive creatures. Occasionally, Gemini cats can be a bit high-strung, and they won't readily approach strangers or unknown animals, not out of fear but due to their cat intuition. They rely on their instincts to understand and gauge new individuals. However, once a Gemini cat gets to know someone better and accepts them, they become lifelong friends.
Cats love strolling among flowers, especially when they are in bloom and emit a delightful fragrance. Speaking of which, Gemini cats thoroughly enjoy accompanying their humans on garden walks.

Additionally, male cat will point out plants where bugs or butterflies can be hunted, showing with all his appearance that he is happy that his human walks with him, and the world is so good! He seems echoing the sentiments of Great Luis, exclaiming, "Oh, what a wonderful world!"
