Territorial behavior is typical for cats after they make it through social maturity. Somewhere between two or four years old their biological clock tells them to set up social ranks and territorial rights. Cats are normally labelled as dominant because they overpower even the largest animal present in the area.
This video shows how this kitten is slowly acquiring the behavior. Taking one’s place at an early age is already a sign that they have a sense of predominance. The Chihuahua seems a bit confused, but he doesn’t seem too upset over giving up his spot to the kitty. However, the kitten must have liked the comfy spot that he doesn’t feel bad at all.
See how these two animals amazingly compromised the whole situation? Cats’ dominance can get them into trouble at times but mostly, they win. And as the saying goes, “cats rule and dogs drool!”
