Styx Who?

The Styx Communications Facebook Page has uploaded the following Show and Tell thanks to Adobe Voicehttps://voice.adobe.com/a/plK6R/

My cat, my muse and the namesake of this blog is pictured here! As a healthy and rambunctious kitten about to be put down for lack of storage space, she was rescued from a nearby SPCA by Katies Place, a no-kill sanctuary in Maple Ridge, BC. Here, she was originally named Bess and was living there for a year before we found her in 2012.

Who Exactly is this Styx ?

In Greek Mythology, Styx is a goddess who pre-dated Zeus! Yes, this is the self-same Goddess upon which the famous mythological river is named after. According to wikipedia.org:

gods were bound by the Styx and swore oaths on it. The reason for this is during the Titan war, Styx, the goddess of the river Styx, sided with Zeus. After the war, Zeus promised every oath be sworn upon her.

Since the day she sat on my lap at the shelter

I swore to Styx that she would live happily ever after with me and her little brother Jubjub (my bearded dragon). I gave her this name, promised to feed her, love her, house her, cuddle her, listen to her (she’s a chatty kitty, LOL) and make her feel safe, warm and loved!

Now she’s in a forever home with us, living happily every after!

I wanted to make-up for the fact that she bounced from one shelter to another and no one adopted her for almost a year and a half. I wanted her to trust that there are good, kind, caring and loving people in this world who tell great stories and love to write and take photos!
