The journey to the copse didn't take very long, but dawn was already over by the time they got there. Sentries were posted, and the other cats were able to finally sleep.
The farm was just visible from the copse, but nothing was stirring. Poppyfur had taken over from a sentry about half an hour ago; all the original sentries had been relieved by other cats so that they too could get some sleep. At first, there was nothing to report, but then, Poppyfur stiffened as a stranger came up to the copse.
The strange cat was black in colour, with four white paws, a white chest and a white tipped tail. She had blue eyes, but the really unusual thing about her was that her fur was overlong, so much that it trailed on the ground. It was however unknotted and shiny; her fur was sleek and she was slightly larger than the average cat.
