This is how deer defend themselves. The big ones don't need to do it much. They establish their alphaness, and then they just look at another deer, pretend to do this, and the lesser deer backs off. There is a hierarchy, males first, and then on down the rolecall.
That was Friday, on Saturday, we had some snow. Happily I have a deer shed to look for somewhere on our 16 acres!
Then there is Annabelle.
It's taken her a year. Seriously. She knows we feed the other cats on the counter. She has never ventured up there out of fear or respect. Finally, it's done. It was very easy to feed them separately when she didn't go up there, since they are on specific foods. sigh. What was I thinking, four cats?!
