What makes Phaedra so mean?
This is Phaedra [aka Badness, Uppity-ass Cat, Filth]. Born somewhere in the swampy, swampy south, this cat is living proof that one can remove the cat from the swamp but not the swamp from the cat.
From her alligator ancestors, she has inherited stealth, speed, and a vise-like chomp. Her one weakness is falling asleep on her back with paws in the air, so that anyone around finds her tummy irresistible. The fools.
When she is awake, she will systematically clear books from their shelves, beginning at the bottom. Once the previous shelf has been cleared, she will hop into it, reach up to the next, and continue the siege. After the second or third shelf, she retire to the pile of books she created on the floor and snack on dust jackets. She will not admit it publicly, but she loves to be brushed.
Phaedra is quite jealous of attention lavished on anyone/thing but her and will lash out by leaping upon a table or shelf and destroying whatever she finds there. Her favorite pastimes are eating things she finds on the floor, leveling anything upright, and tormenting tree-dwelling rodents from the comfort of her apartment window sill.
