The Eye of the Tiger. Was not. Upon Me.
Not at All.
Nor that of the Tigress which was afore i, Shiro also. Also,
being Thirsty and otherswise occupied, to Waters was She
so headed. There. There,..
then too did i slowly. Slowly, silently. In Shadow.
Smoothly bring up, align Bow, Arrow, Tigress.
Plan B not needed. Not Now. Now
the Tongue of this Tigress curled back as Waters were
flicked and taken in. Her rounded Eyes slowly surveying. Arounds.
Still and ’twas mid Morn yet She had fed already. A
Young Deer that had strayed. Ways too far. Far
from that and Family Herd.
Btw… Tigers do not Roar before Attacks;
but mainly as Long Distance Telephony and Communication.
Certain Other Creatures Calls and Sounds can be imitated. Also.
They prefer The Ambush Styles. No Purrings either.
She so killed quickly in that Big Cat typical Ways.
Body weight shifting to adjust on the accelerated run-in.
A Mature Tiger can Leap some 5-6 Mtrs. Length and Height.
Keeping Pace, the Paw extends, to flick a Trip.
Strong, smooth, relentless. Body-weight, Claws and Teeth
doing that final Work. Working to find vulnerable points of
Bone, Neck, Back or Belly.
Claws honed on those Tall Trees. Trees that so mark and line. Along
the Ways to these Waters thus and so
She sprayed. Spraying as both release and Warning. Warning
to Others alike and not-so. Marking Her Ways
and Lands… along those Ways. The Ways of the Tiger. Thereof.
Males and Females oft share overlapping Territory for reasons of Mate-ship,
Ritual and Tradition.
The smell too, as One closes in, is
of a wild, intense and buttery Popcorn which then so
adorns the Jungles usual green and browns heady scents.
Centred on a Spot a lil’ Ways above the Ribcage. Watching it fill and
empty. Empty becoming
of Thought, Desire and Motive i, Shiro waited for that Final
Alignment. Of Action. Then.
Closed Eyes. Now. Mine.
My Camouflage Clothing, Tree Foliage Add-ons,
Elephant Droppings Rub and Local Experts Teachings
was in deed doing that Hard Works. My Nose a bit tetchy as well. Well as
being One of the few Cats that so loves, indulges in Waters Play. Playful,
soothing and cooling no doubt. No doubt too. To
and though being not endowed with Specific Night Vision and in spite
of being Blind at Birth… for a Week or so,..
some and a Vision 6 Times better than Mine. Yours also. Day or Night.
This Tigress. Never knew what hit Her.
The Ninja of Japan had well Trained i, Shiro. Well. Well…
quite Hard actually. Any
and Ways… Then.
If i, Shiro had known
Of The Tigress.
…or Me… at that and those Times and Places. Was
in the Real… ON ME.?.
Those Hands holding the Bow…
and the i, Shiro Camo Pants…
…may have been cattily filled
with more than such placated purring Emotions. So Writ.
The resultant Dinner would not have been had by Me…
but… may… have been Me.!. in deed. Indeed
though not necessarily a Man Hunter;
Man Eater, Tigers sometimes be.
Their Ways too. Are of Survival.
Ways of the Tiger are one of the Classic Animal Forms
within Our World. Legends
of Our Martial Arts.
The Tigers Claw… a Classic Move as well. Well as
having the ability to inspire and Symbolically
far and wide in Our World. Legends that so
and tell of Names and
Nick-names so applied. Applying Strength, Raw

Meals in surprising Ways.
Males await generally for the Young and the Female to have Firsts. First
and foremost at Meal Times… is Share. Tigers
rarely fight over Kills, simply waiting Turns. An innate,
rare Sense, perhaps kicks in. Of
a Respect of Death that can then, Life Gives and Shares. To
Others as well. Well as the Tiger Tongue is Antiseptic. Antiseptic
Licking of Wounds so applied. Therein. Thereupon. As well

of Leopard and Tiger the main in the Wild as they tend to cross
each Others Paths a lil’ more than some Others.
The White Tiger somewhat a rarity. Also. Also
being given such a suitable and Legendary nomen.
