  3. 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.

  6. 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.
