I became interested in your problem because your subject said,
"pursuit curve". Anyway, I don't really understand your code, so here
is my attempt.
Will someone please explain why the fox is so stupid?
rep@params={rabbit->({Cos@#,Sin@#}&),k->2}
(*http://forums.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/2003/Aug/msg00224.html*)
vSubtract[args__?VectorQ]=Subtract[args]
deqn=fox'[t]==k*Sqrt[rabbit'[t].rabbit'[t]]*vSubtract[rabbit@t,fox@t]&&fox[0]=={0,1/2}/.rep@params/.(Cos[blah_]^2+Sin[blah_]^2)->1
dsoln=NDSolve[deqn,fox,{t,0,3.5 \[Pi]/2}]
Needs["DifferentialEquations`InterpolatingFunctionAnatomy`"]
ParametricPlot@@{{fox@t,rabbit@t}/.dsoln[[1]]/.rep@params,Flatten@{t,InterpolatingFunctionDomain[fox/.dsoln[[1]]]},AspectRatio->Automatic,PlotStyle->{Red,Black}}
