"It's the middle of the day, and the leopard is resting in a
little cubbyhole of rocks and brush. Something has gotten his attention and he's looking down the hill. Is that a baboon? Is
that lunch? Is that a threat, or a meal, or an opportunity? Or
should I just go back to sleep?"
Coheleach has captured that indefineable quality that lives in
every cat, from tabbies to tigers: a sleepy, bored curiousity
that masks the alertness and the ability to spring from sleep to
violent action in a whisker, and go back to sleep just as quickly.
