Please check the meaning: "Like a cat in a corn crib, the girl pup sneaked in from behind and sank her needlesharp teeth in the coon's back." Just the "like a cat in a corn crib" part. Thanks!

Please clarify your question. I see nothing wrong with your whole sentence, including the part you are asking about.

What does the simile "Like a cat in a corn crib" mean?

I've always lived in cities, but I think cats are kept in corn cribs (storage buildings) to keep the mice and rats away. If a cat catches one, it kills it.

No, it means that it's easy to catch their prey. In that sentence Little Anne had a really easy time catching the coon. Because, rats and mice hang around corn cribs and eat the corn. They are ready made food supply and is easy for the cats to catch. Trust me, I'm doing this project right now. I did my research.
