Padfoot
It was an early spring morning the sun was just beginning to peak over the trees and spill into the windows of the homes in the village of Tuvvak.

Hidu
Hidu felt a weight on his chest as he awoke that morning, wondering what it could be he opened an eye to see the black fur of Padfoot's Shedu. The tail laying across his throat as if the cat was wanting to make a noose. The cat was fast asleep across Hidu and Padfoot, his head laying on Padfoot's legs and his butt on Hidu's chest. Hidu reached for his knife he kept to the side of the bed. He kept it sharp enough to shave his face, but it was about to be used to shave something with a little more fur. Moving slowly not to wake either Padfoot or her oversized house cat, he started to run the knife down the cats back to the tip of the tail. After a few strokes and a pause here or there when something stirred leaving a huge bald spot all the way down the cats back to the tail. Feeling gratified he quietly put the knife back and laid back to at least look like he was sleeping.

Padfoot
Padfoot yawned blinking as her eyes adjusted to the brightness of the room. she tried moving her arm only to find Shade laying on top of it. She sighed pulling the arm out from under the shedu and scratching his side

"You know Hidu doesn't like you up here boy" she sat up pulling her legs free as well when she noticed a lot more fur on the bed than the cat's presence usually brought.

"... God Dammit Hidu!" She yelled

Hidu
Hidu yawning and blinking as he got up.

"Whats up?" he asked trying his hardest to hold back the smile, looking around to notice the cat fur all over the bed.

"I didn’t do that, but hey it looks good right shade?" a huge grin coming over his face, now thinking he should of held onto the knife a little longer.

Padfoot
"Oh sure you didn't" Padfoot rolled her eyes

Shade sat up tilting his head curiously at the humans trying to figure out why they where arguing. He glanced at the bedroom's mirror and pretty soon he got his answer. The fur that was left on his shoulders and tail poofed up and he hissed at Hidu.

Oh god dammit” Padfoot exclaimed again grabbing the cat around the neck before he could pounce at Hidu.

Hidu
Feeling like it was about to be a fun fight, Hidu jumped out of bed grabbing his knife as he rolled. He jumped up with his knife in one hand ready for the cat to attack.

"Come on shade i think Padfoot wants a new fur coat."

Hidu jumping back and forth completely naked ready to fight this cat that has a lot more knives then he does

Padfoot
Nope, nope, nope” Padfoot said pushing Shade who was equally interested in fighting towards the door.

You are not killing each other today, maybe another day not today!” As she pushed shade out the door closing it behind him.

Hidu
Hidu feeling sad put his knife away.

"Damn i was hoping to get rid of that cat today"

Laughing to himself as he brushed the fur off the bed

Padfoot
You better be careful boy, if it comes down to it I may pick that cat over you” She teased climbing back up the ladder to their loft bedroom.

Hidu
Hidu laughed, "that's implying the cat would win". Feeling a bit cold now he went to the dresser to get dressed

Padfoot
I've seen that cat win against guys bigger that you” She said also getting dressed for the day.

Hidu
"They were bigger, that's probably why they lost" he said as he put one of his boots on

"what was it we were doing today?" Hidu asked

Padfoot
Hunting” Padfoot answered “Whatever we happen to find I was thinking we could head over to that creak out past town and see if we can't pick up some trails.”

Hidu
"We bring tokotas or we going old natural" he asked as he slapped on his other boot.

Padfoot
I wanna run the tokos today I'd like to take out Greywind, Annik and that one I've been keeping an eye on Nefarian.” She climbed down the ladder to start gathering the items she'd need.

Hidu
"Okay sounds good I wouldn't mind bringing ghost and Suka, star can sit this one out." He jumped down to the lower floor

"we gonna make breakfast or grab something in town?"

Padfoot
Padfoot thought for a second “let's grab something in town” She said happily they didn't stop in town for food very often as they where pretty self reliant so it was a rare treat.

Hidu
"Awesome, sounds good" he grinned putting on one of his lighter jackets.

"When do you wanna head out, cause if i have a minute i wouldn’t mind checking on the forge" he asked with the door open about to step through it.

Padfoot
You go do that I'll start rounding everyone up” Padfoot said slinging a bag over her shoulder and heading to the door.

Hidu

He nodded and went out the door noticing the now partially bald cat starring at him on the porch, his tail flicking back and forth his eyes had evil intent. Hidu laughed to himself again as he walked to the forge seeing Ghost and Star laying where they usually are. He walked on over and plopped in between them rubbing on them both.

Padfoot
It didn't take long for Padfoot to find Greywind he was near the porch with Nix and his father.

Come on Greywind” she called patting Cody and Nix on the heads as she left. Annik took a little longer he was behind the house rough housing with one of his siblings. Then Padfoot went to the barn for the third tokota she was in charge of Nefarian had taken a liking to laying out in front of the barn in the sun and that's just where she found him.

Come on where going hunting you want to come”

Nefarian stood stretched and followed them into the barn.

Hidu
Hidu working in the forge for a min, finished up and grabbed a few things he would need for this trip. He grabbed his bow and a quiver of arrows. Walking out of the forged he looked back.

"Come on Ghost your coming with, you stay Star okay girl.”

Ghost slowly getting up licked Star on the face and followed Hidu. As he walked to the barn let out a sharp whistle for Suka to hear and come to him.

Padfoot
Once the tokotas where all tacked and ready to go they headed out. Their first destination was a nearby town. At the head of their pack where Padfoot and Hidu riding Annik and Ghost respectively. Each carrying the tools their handlers may need on the trip. Next was Nefarian trotting a little ways behind Ghost. And bringing up the rear Suka and Greywind pulling a cart behind them in case the pack managed to bag any large prey.

Hidu
As we approached town a little toki was trotting slowly ahead of us. As we pass the toki i notice its Talulla one of the TCA's roaming tokotas. We quickly pass her by.

Padfoot
They stop in front of a small shop each ordering a plate of waffles and taking their seats outside near their pack. They get their food but it isn't long before a familiar face showed up. The toki from earlier sat at at their feet giving her best puppy dog eyes. Their hard to resist and Padfoot tosses her a scrap.

Hidu
Hidu looking down scoffs and shovels his waffles into his mouth. "do i look like i share" he points to Padfoot "she shares for the both of us".

Padfoot
oh your so mean” Padfoot teased finishing her own plate.

Hidu
Hidu being done a little sooner got up and left the money for the bill on the table and walked towards Ghost to check his saddle over before we head back out.

Padfoot
Padfoot joined him pulling herself onto Annik's saddle waiting for Hidu to do the same as the pack moved on out of the town. It wasn't long before they reached their hunting grounds a creek near the town that almost always provided hunting opportunities if you knew how to look for them.

Hidu
Hidu looks for a grouping of trees to park the cart as they go out to hunt. After a few minutes of searching he finds a nice grouping of trees that he leads Suka and Greywind to untack them from the sled. As he looked toward the sled he noticed a small bundle of fur laying in the cart taking a small nap.

Padfoot
Padfoot walked over laughing a bit “looks like we've got a tag along” She said seeing the toki.

Oh well leave her be we'll take her back to town when we're done”

Hidu
Hidu finished tying up the cart and everyone was out searching for a large prey. Hidu had his bow noticed with an arrow as Suka followed behind him and Ghost was over in the distance sniffing for a recent scent.

Padfoot
Padfoot was searching as well. Greywind and Annik where together sniffing along the game trail. A little a ways Nefarian was searching on his own. Padfoot was between them looking for more physical indications that there was large game in the area.

Hidu
As Hidu looked for tracks he noticed Ghost pop up and start running. As Ghost ran Hidu followed quickly and let out a sharp whistle to Padfoot to hear and hopefully follow.

Padfoot
Padfoot leaned down to inspect a broken twig when she heard Hidu whistle She sent her pack in Hidu's direction following behind as quickly as she could on foot.

Hidu
As Ghost came closer to there target Hidu started to see what he found. Ghost stopped running and got lower to the ground a little bit away from a bear. It was eating some berries off a bush. Hidu sat and waited for Padfoot and her pack to get closer.

Padfoot
Padfoot knelt down a few feet from Hidu looking over silently asking what his plan was as she pulled her bow from her back and notching an arrow. Her tokotas circled arround joining Hidu's in the foliage around the clearing eyeing the bear.

Hidu
Hidu pointed for all the tokos to circle and surround the bear and have everyone charge in at once for the kill. As everyone spread out and the bear still enjoying its berries. Hidu looked back to see if Padfoot was ready.

Padfoot
She nodded about to give the command for the attack to begin when a light brown flash ran past her at the bear. By the time Padfoot realized what was happening their little follower Talulla was hanging off the bears tail shaking her head violently and growling.

The hell!?” Padfoot questioned standing up now that a surprise attack was out of the question.

Hidu
Feeling surprised as hell, Hidu let an arrow lose at the bear trying to get its attention. The tokos knowing the arrow as the signal to attack, they all ran in and tried to grab apart of the bear.

Padfoot
Annik joined The toki nipping at the bears heels as far from the teeth as he could get. Greywind and Ghost on the other hand where a little braver charging right into the bear's face while Suka and Nefarian flanked it each coming from a different side.

The bear never stood a chance and it soon fell taking it's last breath. The tokotas all sat panting a bit. The toki on the other hand happily jumped atop the dead bear posing proudly above the slain creature as if relishing in her achievement the bears tail still firmly grasped between her teeth. The larger tokotas all huffed at her rolling their eyes.
