    She scents the air and smells several birds maybe 4-5! And a squirrell! She locates her prey and stalks carefully making sure that they cant catch her scent on the wind. She comes near then pounces giving a swift bite to the neck on a juicy robin. She collects the robin and pads deeper into the forest trying to find something else to bring back to the clan.
