Black Footed Desert Cat
Some creatures are meant to be together. They say men live longer when they have a mate. Women don't need one to live longer! Not sure what that says....
In other animal kingdoms, the animals don't get together unless they mate. Like the jaguars, or cheetahs. Lions have their prides. Wolves and coyotes, their packs. I even read where the king vulture takes a mate for life.
Many of the cats are loners. In a household, some cats love to be together. Others, not so much so.
Yet when I saw this black footed desert cat--totally wild, not a cute little ocelot looking cat--I thought she looked lonely. Doesn't she look like she needs a friend?
In Silence of the Wolf, there's a strong theme of family.
When divisions happen, no matter what the reason, there's a loss. Strength in numbers, in pack unity. Division, dissent, trouble otherwise.
Sometimes someone who is not so close to the situation can see the real truth much more than those who are dealing with it more emotionally.
If it's not broken, don't fix it. But what if it is broken? Then something has to change...
Got word count on Silence of the Wolf!!! Now I'm just finishing it up! :)
