- The sun had reached its peak only a short while ago; being greenleaf, it fell slowly, and the weather was hot and dry. Twolegs may be nuisances, but their odd structures frequently provided shelter from the elements; besides that, their filthiness often attracted rats and mice. Their lands, if traded carefully and mapped well, could provide for very fruitful hunting. Silluna, a silver marbled tabby she-cat, knew these lands like she knew the claws on her feet.
As she strode alongside a tall wooden fence, her belly swung from the fresh-kill she had easily caught and killed in the dark space beneath a Twoleg's nest. Now, the she-cat made her way to the lovely pond in the center of this Twolegplace. The pond was surrounded by a small amount of grass, shrubbery, and small ledges that Twolegs often sat upon during the day. Silluna knew the schedule of the Twolegs in this neighborhood very well; the Twoleg kits had already left to play in the water not far from Twolegplace, and their parents would likely be elsewhere until nearly sun-down.
That left the pond - a fresh source of water - and the park - a peaceful place to relax - open for Silluna to safely cat-nap after her filling meal. The she-cat padded into the small park and towards the pond. She slowed when she reached it, leaning down to lap some water up before padding off towards some bushes to climb inside for a nap. However, she scent of an unfamiliar cat caught her nose, and her fur prickled with awareness of another presence.
"Come out now," the she-cat said in a cool, level voice, "or I will drag you out."
