girl Cat is either two years old or four to nine months
old. Her more useful role will be to discourage Rabbit,
Brown Thrashers, Chipmunk, Vole and other small rodents.
Currently she's not particularly fierce, she's strong
hearted, good character, she's quite adorable in soft
paws kind of way and her experience of the outdoors is
probably zero. Which means it'll be my role to become an
Uncle Cat and train her up in the useful arts.
Uncle Cats are
supposed to bring in little tit-bits from the outdoors so
that younger more innocent cats can learn. And when I say
tit-bits I mean something like a slightly wounded Field
Mouse, which I deposit near my Niece Cat so that she might
spend happy hours chasing it around the domicile, listening
to it squeak and theoretically the experience will give her
taste for a freshly killed meat product that has fur and
bones. Yes indeed, it sounds like a rural nightmare, but
that's just the way things are.
