She first appears prowling the alley, and is then ambushed by Stick when he spots her hiding. He is immediately suspicious of her and demands that she tells him where Dodge is. Stick threatens to kill her, so she agrees to tell. Shorty protests, but Stick ignores him, only interested in finding out where Dodge is hiding. Onion tells him that Dodge lives in some boxes by a stream. Stick still tries to kill her, but Shorty pulls him back, saying that Onion has already told them what they needed to know. Stick reluctantly lets her go, and she flees down the alley, away from Stick, with her tail streaming behind her.
Shorty: "Stick, no! What are you doing? You can't kill her!"
Stick: "Yes, I can! But I won't. You, mange-pelt, tell me where Dodge is."
Onion: "He's by the stream. Behind the Twoleg nests. He sleeps in some old boxes... Let me go, please!"
