I may find myself growling and hissing about this kitten here on the blog a lot, so I thought it only fair to show you who I am usually mad at. I present to you the kitten who is named in honor of Eris the Greek Goddess (Romans called her Discordia) of strife, chaos, and discord. The black furred fiend next to me is none other than…..Discord:
She really, really annoys me. She always wants to play, she sneak attacks me thinking she has mad ninja skills (she doesn’t, Mom has even said she “fails”) and just generally causes as much havoc as possible. In fact, there is one song from a play that really describes her…
If the area window was found ajar And the basement looked like a field of war If a tile or two came loose on the roof Which presently ceased to be waterproof If the drawers were pulled out from bedroom chests And you couldn’t find one of your winter vests Or after supper one of the girls Suddenly missed her Woolworth pearls Then the family would say, “It’s that horrible cat!
Yeah, it’s about two cats but Discord causes that much chaos all on her own.
But, I tolerate her because she’s family. She’s one of only three kittens that my baby brother Ichigo fathered before he got kittynapped, so that makes her my niece Mom says. Her furmommy is the stray that came to stay known as Rukia.
Ichigo, Rukia…yes, my Mom is a fan of the show Bleach, how could you tell?
Mom didn’t get to keep all three kittens, but she managed to keep Discord and I really wish she never named her that, because she really lives up to that name! She used to cause trouble and run around as a baby when her siblings were quite and well behaved. And even now, she causes so much trouble, goes where she shouldn’t, knocks things down, and sneak attacks me and Mom all the time. It’s not uncommon to hear a loud crash in the house and then hear a shout of DISCOOORD!!!! right after.
So this is Discord, who shall be henceforth known on this blog as the Kitten-From-Hell until she settles down and behaves. She’s been here for a few months now though so I wouldn’t place any bets on her behaving any time soon.
