The 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.
