Somewhere in the past 49,579 posts (vbg) there was a post about dogs and
cats. I thought I'd share an observation from Christmas day. We had
brunch at my brother-in-law's house. He has a calico cat that is about
9 years old. They also have a d*g thing that is a mix of chow, lab, and
various other small muscular d*g. Elsie (the d*g) was getting pets from
everyone in the room and enjoying all of the company, but you could see
her watching from the corner of her eye, looking for the cat. Sundae
(the cat) knows some of us very well and remembers us from the time we
rescued her. She was with me getting scritches and ear rubs. When she
walked away, Elsie came over for a pet. Sundae ran under the coffee
table and attacked Elsie for daring to approach one of *her* hoomans.
Poor Elsie is terrified of this very small calico cat. BIL says that
Sundae will hide (for instance under the Christmas tree) and wait for
Elsie to walk by and she'll run out and slap, slap, slap Elsie with her
paws. Another d*g slave to the Master species.

Sounds like Elsie knows and respects who the boss is!
