Perhaps you should have a copy of "Watership Down" on a table or something next time we see Elara.

Are you sure he's referring to morph rabbits?

I don't feel Sandy is in any real trouble with the bear.  This could go in several directions.  First, the bear could be friendly and team up with Sandy on his "adventure". 

Yeah, and the history of literature is filled with safe, cozy stories with happy endings.  Sandy has made a rather bad mistake, a mistake which in reality could have proved fatal.  I'm not saying that the bear should off Sandy, but I am saying that avoiding the "who's been sleeping in my bed" issue reeks of bedtime story cuteness.  Perhaps Sandy will get some sort of fine or duty for tresspassing. 

How would you feel if you came home and some stranger was sleeping in your house?

Well, Sandy could be in trouble either way.  If it is animal bear, then it is not likely to hunt and eat something Sandy's size.  But it may well attack a trespasser in its lair, particularly if there are cubs in there...  mama bear will not be amused.

OTOH, if it is a morph bear, Sandy could make a fine set of meals over several days.  Would the bear merchant sell Sandy on a Stick?  <grins evilly>  Then again, Sandy might be safe - he's not exactly what I would call "sweet".

So, for Sandy it may be dead either way, being eaten may just be a very odd form of afterlife.  Somehow though, and for reasons that break the fourth wall, I expect he's not going to get "et by the bar" just yet.

On Cat Hares:

Yeah, I think that's it.  Take a look at the 10/17 strip and in particular the difference in ear-to-head size of the hares and the same on Elara - Elara's got a much shorter ratio.  Also, in the long distance of the current strip, we can't see Elara's black whiskers and darker fur which set her apart from the hares (see 2/14 and 2/21 for close-ups of the hares - they apparently don't have whiskers or like arctic hares, they are white and too fine to see at this resolution):

On Donner:

There have been sorry times in our species' history when we treated different varieties of home sapiens as less than human and thus subject to barbarous treatment. Given the fairly low level of morph social development (clan/tribal), such behaviors would not be beyond the pall, particularly in extreme environments like starvation.  One hopes that it is not a morph eat morph world.   smiley

Well, for one thing, Elara is a cat.  I have never heard of a cat that didn't like fish.

Uh, sorry.  I think it is the way her ears stick up that made me think she was a rabbit.

I do strongly believe that the morph would not eat each other.

This sounds like it is more aesthetic than dietary.  Many people might find it hard to eat monkey or dolphin and not because they are toxic to us.  Or is it more like a revulsion to cannabilism?  If a mixed group of morphs were starving in the snow, would they eat other morphs before eating their own kind?  Or are morph tribal differences only fur deep?

Is it not the case that the morphs' diets have evolved somewhat strangely?  Elara apparently eats salmon, which would be peculiar for a normal rabbit.  And as strangely in the opposite direction, Rhene has no inclination to hunt Elara herself.  Exactly how do morph diets work?
