Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is the honorable warrior who defends the Aesir gods and Asgard (their fortress) from giants. Most popular during the Viking Age in Scandinavia, he has now been resurrected as a beautiful Bengal cat. And of course he kept his name. Thor is also on Instagram because, you know, he has to keep up with the times.
The kitty, with his gorgeous markings, so embodies his namesake (err, former self) that all it takes is one look from those big green eyes to defeat the giants (now called “humans”) and make them his servants (who else is going to bring him food and toys and whatever else he wants to keep up his godlike physique?).
Here’s how Thor the cat is so Thor the Norse God.
1. He’s A Warrior
He’s always on the lookout for enemies.
2. He Defends His Fortress
Fortresses need defending, you know.
3. He Wields His Hammer, Mjöllnir
Mjöllnir’s invisible, of course. It’s a god hammer, after all.
4. Giants Wither Before Him
“Look how small you’ve become in my presence, tiny human.”
5. He Wears A Belt Of Strength
It gives him so much more strength that he can go outside with minimal to no harm.
6. Courage Is His Unshakeable Quality
Thor is so brave that he allows the enemy to get close enough to think they are allies. He will attack shortly.
7. His Enemy Is Jormungand, The Sea Serpent
Just as Thor has transformed into a cat, Jormungand has transformed into a catnip stick. Their rivalry may be shorter lived this time around.
8. He Rides Across The Sky In A Chariot
He’s on his way to his next battle.
