    Halfnight

    She slightly parted her jaws to scent a pigeon. The plump gray bird was pecking at some seeds at the base of the Lone Tree. A leaf rustled on the tree; this alerted the pigeon and it looked around to see the black and white shecat. With a growl of frustration, she used the tree to diagnolly spring up, and caught the bird in midair. The descent down wasn't so glorious. She landed akwardly on her rear leg, injuring it. (Yea, Halfnight was boring me so I wanna make her life more interesting.)

    Nodded and went in the opposite direction. She breathed deeply, tasting the air for prey. Suddenly she caught a whiff of a mole. She followed the scent, and then saw it burrowing 2 fox-lengths ahead of her. She crouched and then ponced, killing the mole with a bite to the throat.

    He padded into the clearing with his patrol behind him. "Spread out and catch as much as possible. Snow can hit at any time we need to be prepared." He watched his patrol dispurse and went his own way.. He began scenting out the area, 'hmm, two mice, hare, and... What is that?' He began thinking to himself.. The new scent seemed to be familiar to him, but he ingored it for the moment. 'Hare first, always get the biggest first.' He thought to himself. Stalking carefully and making sure the chilling wind was on the other side of the prey he pounced forward snaging the hare and killing it before it could warn the other prey.......

    Lilywolf to Horseclan - The Lone Tree

    Looming ov

    Lilywolf to Horseclan - The Lone Tree <br />

    <br />

    Looming over the prairie, one last great relic of the forest that use to cover this land still stands. A mighty maple has rooted itself so deeply that it has withstood the test of time while all other trees have died. The leafy branches provide an excellent view of the prairie as well as relief from the sun. A family of squirrels has also refused to leave and cling to this tree for support. They can often be seen searching for nuts along with many songbirds. However by this tree also grow herbs such as juniper, sedge, goldenrod, and even a small patch of catnip, its seeds carried here by the birds in their droppings. Overall this maple provides a bounty of prey and herbs alike. ~ The Lone Tree, Lilywolf
