I am TaRepy, named after the Egyptian Sphinx Goddess Ta'Repy. In ancient Egypt she was the name for the constellation 'Virgo'. I am a pouncing, playful kougra... and up until recently, I've never had any worries or responsibilities.
You see, I have always been a Desert Kougra, with my pretty blue spots and sandy pelt. I spent my days playing in the sands of the Lost Desert, without a care in the world. It was one morning that I pounced up to Coltzan's Shrine, and called out...
"Hay n-ek, nesso en Kemet,! Netcher-ef! Nen enk tem, iri I ah!!"... Oh, you mean that you don't speak Sakhmet?? It translates to... "Hail to the King of Egypt! He is divine! I am not perfect, make me great!!" (Some pets just say, 'Come on Coltzan, make me stronger', but I have more flair.) Then King Coltzan's face appeared, and I closed my eyes, waiting to become stronger, but instead his voice echoed... "Et jem wenn waty."... Oh yes, sorry, the translation is... "You shall be unique." Then nothing, absolutely nothing happened at all. I sat there dumbfounded for quite sometime, until my brother Wepauwet arrived (he's a Desert Lupe if you didn't know). He bowed low on his front paws before the shrine, then turned to me and asked why I was sitting there. I related the whole story to him, and he smiled, then told me to go home and not worry... for Coltzan is a great and wise king.
The next morning I felt the same as always, but when I looked in my golden mirror, something had changed. My stripes were gone, and replaced with Hieroglyphic Script! My family was shocked, and quickly began to translate the writing on my pelt. 'Shem-a mesh jem pah' it said... 'Foreign crocodiles shall fly!' It made no sense, until the first Draik was sighted! My pelt had prophetic writing!
Now the script changes every few mornings, carrying new cryptic prophecies. I guess that I'm somewhat special now, I have to be more responsible, and to pay attention to... 'looks over her shoulder distracted'... Um, was that a mousekin that I saw go by?? I'll talk to you later... I have... er important business.
'TaRepy pounces off into the desert, after her new play thing.'
She lies in the sun, bright eyes shining
Her padded paws spread out the perfect little cat
You'll never see another so great to look at
Suddenly she will pounce at you
A little sphinx kitten
