Introduction To Prey

Prey! We all know prey. We refer to it as many different things. Creatures, Prey, Game, Meat, and other terminology is used to describe prey. In roleplay, all cats and canines, and other species are determined to eat prey to keep alive, just like us humans. We eat meat, they eat meat. It all works out in the end.

Some people/species are herbivores, meaning they eat plants and other vegetation, and that they don't eat meat. If your OC doesn't eat meat... then you're either here because you're bored, or you need it for something.

In roleplay, it can be rather hard for you to decide which prey is for which animal/species you are. The smaller felines like cats do not go up to a full-sized deer and take it down with a single claw. Nor do canines go up to a rhino and instantly sink its teeth in and kill it.

No, no, young children. I will educate you in the matters of prey, and its revolution in the animal society.

Pay attention.

Or.. don't.

It's fine either way.

Cheers, Love.

General Prey - Mice, Rabbits, Birds, Fish

Reasoning: Mice are generally small, and are easy to catch. Clichè, but easy.

Rabbits have burrows, which cats can easily dig at, or find out in the open, as well as they're easy to chase.

Birds are commonly easy because most cats have good tree climbing skills, making it easier for them to catch birds. 

Felis Catus X = Crowfood, Larger Animals

Reasoning: Crowfood is dangerous for most felines, as sometimes it can contain tainted things from twolegs, or they've just gone rotten, making the cat seriously ill in the process.

Larger Animals such as canines and bears are not common for a cat to get prey out of, much less to fight. These animals make cats stray away rather than try to hunt them.

Fish in a stream are generally easy prey, and are nourishing for any feline, as long as they don't fall in. Fish are easy to catch, and are a good quick source of prey.

General Prey - Elk, Moose, Large Birds, Fish, Smaller Animals

Reasoning: Elk and Moose share the same category, so why not hit two birds with one stone. Anyway, Elk and Moose are a good prey for the larger cats, because they are very filling and are seemingly easy to catch for the big cats.

Large Birds, including seagulls, pelicans, ostriches, etc. are good for big cats because most cats have a fond flavoring for birds. They are good for air attacks, when learning.

Fish in a stream are generally easy prey, and are nourishing for any feline, as long as they don't fall in. Fish are easy to catch, and are a good quick source of prey.

Smaller Animals make good prey for the Big Cats, like dogs and feral cats, as they are smaller and weaker, and make a good treat for the big cats.
