It wasn't unusual for Amy to go out alone at night in panther form. Though she didn't actually catch or kill other animals, she kept her hunting skills sharp in case she ever had to use them to bring food to the people of the island. She crawled along silently, using the trees and bushes to hide herself as she stalked various creatures. Keeping her mind on the task at hand was a wonderful distraction with her father gone. She decided to climb a strong tree at the edge of the forest and get a better view of the island, to pick her next target.
Amy settled onto a branch and watched the horse in the meadow, with a rider. That concerned her. She didn't want to startle even the smallest creature, let alone an islander, but turning human could mean she'd fall to the ground. And the horse might notice her at any moment. She decided to give a very small, almost kitten-like meow in the hopes of attracting the attention of the rider.
