Loretta the Lovable Lynx
What can I say about Loretta?
She lived a happy and solitary life in the mountains of Colorado, occasionally enjoying a short but passionate relationship with a handsome guy lynx, successfully raising her kits to be self-sufficient and sending them on their way, and generally enjoying life.
Loretta was so lovable the snowshoe hare in her territory followed her around like puppy dogs. Unfortunately, this created a serious dilemma for our little lynx. The snowshoe hare is what most lynx consider their food of choice. It’s a serious violation of the laws of nature to eat your best friends for dinner.
Loretta had to make a choice. Eliminate the hare from her diet and substitute voles and grouse, or stop being so lovable and chase the snowshoe hare groupies away with a fierce glare and an angry yowl.
I don’t know for sure, but I suspect Loretta chose to be a little less lovable. Survival of the fittest and all that.
