Waiting till the time was right, she almost lost her focus as the summer breeze nudged the verdant blades of grass across the tip of her nose.

With the loudest “Rawr!” she could muster, the tiny ball of velvet fur attacked the unguarded shoe proudly while her humans sat nearby, unaware of the danger that it posed.
