|0005156||Dwarf Fortress||Undeath||public||2012-02-15 20:53||2012-02-25 19:59|
|Assigned To||Toady One|
|Priority||normal||Severity||trivial||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||0.34.03|
|Summary||0005156: Gloom husk cats give birth to normal kittens, then attack them|
|Description||"-name- Cat unholy gloom husk (Tame) has given birth to a kitten"|
She then immediately killed it and returned to her never-ending combat with other female cat gloom husk (they can only bruise each other).
It might be a bug that they hate each other, but omnicidal undead sound kinda cool.
|Steps To Reproduce||Get cats of both genders on a map known to spawn undeath-causing clouds|
Pasture the female cat outside
Wait for the cloud
Wait for kittens
|Tags||birth, gloom husk, undead, unholy|
Oh, and I forgot to add: I confirmed the kitten to be alive for a moment after birth.
Combat logs show the mother tearing a major artery in its throat, it is also covered in cat blood (gloom husks seem not to bleed).
|Update: Dwarves somehow noticed the Stray Kitten (Tame) to be missing, even though only creatures that have ever seen were its mother and her undead nemesis.|
Update 2: Even Creepier!
There are only 2 adult cat husks, but there have been 3 litters of kittens. Both husks are female, meaning that those wasn't just pregnancies that survived death, but new ones. All male cats are alive.
Also: some of kittens from later litters survived the birth and assault that followed. Now their mothers keep chasing them around, trying to kill them.
|Sounds like an awesome feature to me.|

|Being hostile to everyone is NOT a bug. It is intended. But somehow I do not think husks, whatever they are, should give birth to normal version. Or give birth at all. Or get spored by male normal version.|
>Being hostile to everyone is NOT a bug.
Sounds to me like it is, since all other undead hordes (a bunch of kittens across the river, now killed by goblins after a surprising LOOONG fight) act as allies. Those 2 adult cat husks were fighting (without doing any damage) for few years, they only stopped after ganging up on living kittens.
I think it happens when the cloud catches 2 creatures in mid-fight, but I'm not sure.
