I love that backward hoppy thing! Chooey does that too. I taught her the trick "leave it" and apparently I wasn't an effective trainer since whenever I do the "leave it" trick, she would put herself in a "down" position and do the hopping backward thing rather than just wait for the cue that she can it the treat. LOL.

Black Cat: Die, Imbecile!
Lol it's one of the reasons I love this pic - from talking to people who have dogs and cats it would seem the cat is at the top of power chain in the house with the dogs at the bottom so I always picture the cat being completely shocked by the cheeky of the dog!
...notice the cat doesn't retreat at all, just stands his ground changing body language. He arches his back to look bigger and badder, lol! My two get frisky now and then with each other, but my cat will crouch down and look the other way, or take cover behind the couch. But...he always comes back with a gentle swipe of the dog's beard or furnishings, asking for more. :catwave:
