So I’ve got this scene in mind, and I want to say it might be crucial…might not be, depends on how I’ll end up writing it…where a character is out hunting with his friends and suffers a flashback to his war experiences. As I was hitting on the outline, the thought came to me about how to approach the character (in this case, a fox) going out and hunting per their diet (small mammals, birds, etc) since it is meant to be in a world where there would be characters walking around that are the same species he is hunting for fun. Kind of like in that old Mickey Mouse cartoon Moose Hunters where there might be, in all likelihood, a walking talking moose of the same type Mickey’s going after.
I think I came across one of Kyell’s stories, I forget which one, where he approached the subject of there being non-uplifted or non-sapient creatures that fulfill their usual role in a furry world as they would in our real world, and I’m tempted to go with that explanation with some kind of twist. But I just wanted to know if others had experienced this dilemma, and if so how did you all work around it?
I do have a backup plan in mind regarding fish since that seems like a safe way of creating some kind of leisurely activity without getting tripped up over wondering how it would fit within the furry world.
