  1. 1. Three birds (for a 3 and 4 player game) are flipped off the deck and placed around the locale card. Small birds (like Abacas Finch) can be caught without being Stalked. Steven needs to be Stalked once and Edgar must be Stalked twice before being caught.
  2. 2. Each Cat has 4 targeting cards. 2 with Locales and 2 with other cats.
