Common Name: Eris
Full Name: Eris
Needlessly Complex Name Backstory: 2nd in my line of mama cats named after mythological figures. She gets her name from the blood thirsty Greek goddess of strife and discord, though I learned of the deity in her more mischievous form as described in the Principia Discordia. Eris earned her name, having, as a semi-feral, a litter of kittens on the other side of the fence, which drove Hershey mildly insane. Now a (reasonably) contented house cat she still manages to cause trouble.
Nickname: Kiggy (like ‘kitty’ but with ‘g’ for some reason).
Gotcha Date: Uncertain. Some time in 2013
Gotcha Method: Kitten-napping and then using one kitten as a lure for a live trap.
Distinguishing Features: Being a sort of brindle calico, being the only female cat in the house, not liking to be picked up that much.
Favorite Activities: Sleeping, eating, meowing for attention, not being able to handle attention given after meowing, being difficult to get her where I need her to go, gingerly and carefully, with all the intent of a bomb disposal expert settling down in my lap when she cares to.
Known Issues: Being much less trusting than the rest of the cats.
Resolved Issues: After escaping the house once and spending a week huddling under either the car or the house and finally being lured back inside, she has shown only a slight inclination to escape again.
Known Joys: Sidling up to people in her own time and MAYBE snuggling with them if the stars are aligned correctly and she feels like it.
