Had no choice but to leave his ground
The foe took him by surprise
With his food and shelter lost to the beast
The cat became his prize

What is the word referred here?

I'm fairly certain the answer is

catastrophe


Had no choice but to leave his ground

disasters often force people to evacuate..

The foe took him by surprise

providing little to no warning..

With his food and shelter lost to the beast

and take away the most basic of needs.

The cat became his prize

one could argue that this pun is a cat as trophy :P

  • $\begingroup$ Well your last-line pun certainly seems to fit better than my own idea - I've been trying to fit the other lines with rot13(zrqnyyvba - zrqny... yvba...) - but with no luck! $\endgroup$ – Stiv Jan 30 at 10:02
  • $\begingroup$ That's cool! But yeah, I guess the other lines might be tougher to make sense of with that. $\endgroup$ – greysaff Jan 30 at 10:06
