procedural way as follow.

  package main;
  use Class::Implant;

  implant qw(Foo::Bar Less::More) { into => "Cat" }   # import all methods in Foo::Bar and Less::More into Cat

or in classical way. just using caller as default target for implanting.

  package Cat;
  use Class::Implant;

  implant qw(Less::More);                 # mixing all methods from Less::More, 
                                          # like ruby 'include'

  implant qw(Foo::Bar), { inherit => 1 }; # import all methods from Foo::Bar and inherit it
                                          # it just do one more step: unshift Foo::Bar into @ISA
                                          # this step is trivial in Perl
                                          # but present a verisimilitude simulation of inheritance in Ruby
