I found this an amusing read. There were a few sections I had to read to my friends -- his flirtation with a dog too small, the moves to gain forgiveness. Fun, easy read.

I never hurry through the forest for fear of missing something. I prefer to prowl, all senses alert, the master of the wilderness and scourge of small things that squeak. p, 119

I'm not one for pining -- at least, not on an empty stomach.
p. 121
