The Dominant One

Chris has always tried to maintain his dominance over the other cats in the house. That is probably why he fights with Frankie sometimes because Frankie does not accept him as the boss. Puck did, but Chris still needed to prove he was the boss by holding Puck down by the neck. Sometimes, he would even straddle Puck and drag him across the floor by the back of the neck.

After Puck died, he started doing the same thing to Floki. I notice it perhaps once or twice a month. Often he does it while standing but not always. Here is the latest example.

I could be wrong about the reason for this. If anyone knows what this behavior means, please let me know.

    Looks to me like he is letting Floki know who is boss. Tell Chris he better be good if he wants Santa to visit. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer, Kizmet, Audrey & Raleigh

    The only time I have ever seen a male cat bite the neck of another cat is for copulation. I have never seen that before. I have witnessed males hissing, growling and fighting…but, not that. Got me…๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคจ

    I think it’s a dominance display but I honestly don’t know for sure……I’ve had multiple cats at the same time before some years ago but never faced this issue! I think Chris just wants to be KING!

    Hugs, Pam
