The Tiny Terror stares at me with golden yellow eyes and thinks; Who in their right mind names a cat Rainbow???

I wonder about that too, seconds before questioning my sanity.

Once, I named a cat Sugar

The Tiny Terror’s eyes light up. The one that peed in your shoe when she was angry? 

“Yes,” I replied. 

The Tiny Terror curls into a cat ball and whispers with the flick of a tail, bored now.

Never will I name a cat Rainbow. With my luck it will pee on everything I own.

Although… the Tiny Terror was well named.
