Harsh Weather

[personal profile] visionarykitten 2013-05-08 08:25 pm (UTC)(link)
((I'm bringing this wizard kitten to StE too, so hey, might as well meet the other kitty going there >: 3 ))

The black and white cat-- more like kitten, as he wasn't even six months old yet-- crouched under a cardboard box staring at the rain across the alley, looking irritable. His ears were flattened, his eyes were slitted, and his tail twitched against his hip, rather wet and ragged-looking. Actually, all of him was rather wet and ragged-looking.

"Stupid rain," he muttered to himself.

[[<33333 I didn't expect a fellow kitty!]]

Another cat approaches - one much older, a few years at least - having not been so lucky as to find shelter. She's just approached from the dodgy cover of a nearby tree, made curious by the motherless kit out in the rain.

Well, he's not from her Clan, but... well, no she-cat can resist a little kit. Especially one that reminds her of her own. Here she comes, streaking over to him as fast as she can and still ending up looking like a drowned rat, to stand over him and try to provide some cover for when the cardboard roof inevitably collapses.

"Stupid rain indeed." her whiskers bounce as she tries to flick the raindrops off them. "What are you doing out all alone?"

"Why not?" Arhu asks with a flick of his tail, spraying a little water on her in the process, on accident, but without caring a whole lot if he did. She, after all, is even wetter than he is. "I'm not in-pride or anything."

He's looking at her sidelong, too, a little suspicious of the attention and being loomed over. The idea that she might be hovering to protect him from anything doesn't even cross his mind. He's been on his own a long time.

Well, "in-pride" doesn't mean anything to her, but maybe he means something to do with the Clans. Maybe he's trying to suggest he's a kittypet, or a loner. Either way, the only thought in her head is to keep him warm. She's not letting him die like her kittens.

"What about your mother? You're too young to be away from her. Don't you have housefolk, or at least some family to stick near?" Please have family, she couldn't possibly explain dragging another kit into her life at this point.

He sidles away from her offering of warm fur. "I'm a tom, I don't need anybody!" he complains defensively, not liking to be coddled. Arhu's at that prickly stage where he's still a kitten but wants to be thought of as an adult. "I've been on my own for a whole moon now!"

[personal profile] sacrifice_everything 2013-05-09 09:49 pm (UTC)(link)
"Even toms need someone." He reminds her distinctly of Tigerclaw now. She is definitely not letting him out of her sight. Instead, she pulls him closer with a paw and starts licking his fur backward, to help him warm up. "A kit your age shouldn't be on his own, not even a loner. Did your mother abandon you, or did you run away?"
visionarykitten: (Default)

[personal profile] visionarykitten 2013-05-10 06:02 am (UTC)(link)
"No!" Arhu growls, teeth clenched and posture tense, but he doesn't exactly run away from the washing, either. It's been a while. "I'm not exactly nursing anymore, you know, I'm doing fine on my own! And stop calling me kit!"

Growl, spit, grumble. Touchy adolescent kitty, right here.

[personal profile] sacrifice_everything 2013-05-10 12:07 pm (UTC)(link)
"Well you're too small to be any more than a few moons." she sighs, "Fine, then. What's your name, so I can call you that instead? Mine is Bluestar."

She's lived through two cats exactly like you, Arhu, you don't scare her.
visionarykitten: (Default)

[personal profile] visionarykitten 2013-05-10 05:04 pm (UTC)(link)
Probably would if she knew he could do magic. Not that he's very good at it, at this very young stage in his life... but still.

His tail lashes, and he hunches further down as if in protest for her grooming tongue, but he does answer her. "I'm almost six moons. And my name's Arhu."
sacrifice_everything: (Calm ★ When you fall)

[personal profile] sacrifice_everything 2013-05-10 05:09 pm (UTC)(link)
"Nice to meet you, Arhu." She lets him go not that he's mostly groomed. "In my Clan there are rules against kit- cats, younger than six moons being allowed to leave the nursery. It would be cruel to make anything younger than that fend for itself. Wouldn't you like it better to have other cats sharing prey with you and teaching you to defend yourself?"
visionarykitten: (Default)

[personal profile] visionarykitten 2013-05-11 03:55 am (UTC)(link)
"I don't need 'em," Arhu sniffs, thinking about those wizards he's supposed to be working with, himself. They're not too bad, but they're not here, and he's too proud to go to them. "And what's a clan? Is that like a pride? There aren't rules like that in any pride I've heard of. You leave when you want to leave."

Or when you run out of means to feed everyone, or a tom in the pride decides to shred your ears, or whatever.
sacrifice_everything: (Smile ★ These hands are meant to hold)

[personal profile] sacrifice_everything 2013-05-11 12:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, she still doesn't know what a pride is but something tells her she wouldn't like it. "A clan is one of the four groups of cats in the forest where I live. ThunderClan, RiverClan, ShadowClan or WindClan. Each one has a leader, a deputy, a medicine cat and plenty of warriors and queens, along their apprentices and kits, and the elders. We're a big family of sorts that will fight tooth and claw to defend each other. I myself am the leader of ThunderClan. I think you could join easily, you know. Usually we only want ThunderClan-born cats in our clan, but my current deputy was a kittypet at your age. Knowing that, I'm sure I could work something out for you."

You know aside from the fact that when she brought that kittypet into the clan he nearly got strangled by one of the newer warriors, and everyone's convinced that she's starting to go insane at this rate anyway.

[personal profile] visionarykitten 2013-05-11 10:17 pm (UTC)(link)
The look he gives her is incredulous. "You want me to live in a forest? Seriously? Where do you even sleep in a forest? In a tree?" Whatever else he might be, Arhu is at his heart a city cat. When it rained, you could hide under a car. When it was cold, there was always a radiator somewhere you could find to snuggle up to. And when the hunting was poor, there was always trash.

Plus, the whole idea of living with a whole lot of other cats sounded exhausting. It was exhausting enough dealing with Rhiow, Urruah, and Saash, all at once.
sacrifice_everything: (Calm ★ When you fall)

[personal profile] sacrifice_everything 2013-05-12 11:33 am (UTC)(link)
She purrs with amusement, whiskers bouncing. "Forest cats sleep in nests made of moss and bracken. And we build dens if we can't find them, so that we can all live close to each other and share warmth if the weather turns back. Well, except for the leader, I get a den to myself. It's tradition. And since we're all together, the hunting is always the best it can be. Much better than the trash in the Twolegplace here."

She, of course, does not understand that other cats might find the company of a clan exhausting. Having grown up with cats watching her in crowds since she was born, she figures it's just normal to have a huge family.
visionarykitten: (Default)

[personal profile] visionarykitten 2013-05-12 11:15 pm (UTC)(link)
None of that sounds at all cool to Arhu. In fact, he doesn't even know what bracken is, but it sounds sharp. "How big is your 'clan' thing, if there's so many you need a leader?"

For his brand of cats, the largest most pride get is five or six, and even that's pushing it. Arhu considers himself independent-- most of the people and cats he's dealt with so far in life have been pretty nasty, so he's had to be-- and the thought of denning with more than that... scary!
sacrifice_everything: (Poker face ★ Move along...)

[personal profile] sacrifice_everything 2013-05-12 11:41 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh, small." she waves her tail thoughtfully, "20 or 30 cats. Any more than that and we couldn't feed them all, after all. Even with just them, leaf-bare can be very hard. You could have about five denmates if you chose to join us; apprentices, warriors, elders and queens each have separate dens, and the bulk of our clan are warriors. I'm not sure we've ever had more than 13 warriors in ThunderClan."
visionarykitten: (Default)

[personal profile] visionarykitten 2013-05-13 01:19 am (UTC)(link)
The kitten's eyes go big and wide at that. "Twenty or thirty?? How do you keep from-- from-- spending all your time fighting! Or from following around all the queens? Or-- that's just crazy. No People should live in that big a group!" How do they even keep the humans from noticing them, when they do that?
sacrifice_everything: (Worried ★ Another day)

[personal profile] sacrifice_everything 2013-05-13 01:15 pm (UTC)(link)
This makes her purr all the louder. "Because none of us want to fight. We're away from the Twolegs and feed each other, work together and are bound by our Clan's customs. We've all had enough fighting during the big wars, so there's no reason to pull out our claws on each other when there's rarely enough medicine to go around if it happens. As for following the queens around, they're not exactly defenseless. All cats were warriors at some point or another, they know how to fight and they can definitely respect each other like mature adults. Any cat who causes too much trouble is politely asked to leave, but I've only had to do that once." What a sad little kitten, though, assuming that cats would fight just because they're near each other.
visionarykitten: (confused)

[personal profile] visionarykitten 2013-05-14 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
Independent cats like those Arhu knows of sure do, and they'd chase an outsider like him away in a heartbeat. But then, he's never heard of cats making such a big pride, so maybe they are... a different kind of cat. He shakes his head vigorously, his over-sized ears flapping a little and some water flying off them in tiny droplets.

"I think I'm fine here. I know how to get by in the city. And I've got... these wizard guys." He looks a little embarrassed to mention it.
sacrifice_everything: (Worried ★ Another day)

[personal profile] sacrifice_everything 2013-05-14 01:03 pm (UTC)(link)
This makes her ears prick up.

"Wizard guys? What does that mean?" Neither word is anywhere near her vocabulary.
visionarykitten: (hyperstrings)

[personal profile] visionarykitten 2013-05-14 08:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, Iau, she's one of those cats who doesn't know about wizards, isn't she? Arhu winces. "Uh. Well. Cats who can do stuff. Like this."

He feels for the slight side-step without stepping that you have to take to sidle, and quite suddenly vanishes from her view. He doesn't move at all, he's just suddenly not there to see anymore. Or smell, for that matter.

Then he suddenly is again, as he unsidles-- goes visible again. "Stuff like that."
sacrifice_everything: (Hiding ★ With the life held in your)

[personal profile] sacrifice_everything 2013-05-14 08:27 pm (UTC)(link)
She blinks in surprise, completely taken aback by the display.

"How did you do that?"

Didn't StarClan say you can't do anything like that because it messes with nature? Do not like.
visionarykitten: (begging)

[personal profile] visionarykitten 2013-05-15 05:29 am (UTC)(link)
"I sidled." He looks proud of himself, too, though it mellows a little when he tries to explain it. "I went kind of sideways off into another dimension, where you can't see me but I can still do stuff. All wizards can do it, but I picked it up really fast, Saash says."
sacrifice_everything: (Worried ★ Another day)

[personal profile] sacrifice_everything 2013-05-15 12:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Her ears go back. "There's a lot of mischief one could do with that, I hope you're not a rule-breaking type."
visionarykitten: (annoyed)

[personal profile] visionarykitten 2013-05-15 03:10 pm (UTC)(link)
He looks a little affronted by that. Arhu is an agent of chaos, and proud of it! Well, okay, not exactly an agent of chaos since Chaos is kind of a problem for his universe, but he's not very law-abiding. "Of course I am. But," he adds, a little sheepishly, "you can't take anything with you when you sidle, so, uh. It just looks like the stuff you take is floating around...."

It may be that he's tried this before.
