Who's the Alpha?
So who is the alpha cat here? I can rule out Bamino and Rocio immediately because I have seen them defer to the older cats. Herman commanded the respect of the other cats and no cat messed with him. That lets Oja out, as Rocio was certainly messing with her. On the other hand, maybe Rocio stopped messing with her because she convinced him that she was the boss. Horus defers to Oja and Spyro, though not to Bambino or Rocio. Neither Spyro nor Oja defer to any of the others. I did see one thing that makes me think that Spyro may be the alpha. Spyro was eating Oja's dry food and Oja whapped him one between the ears. Spyro looked at her and went on eating, so she whapped him again. He still went on eating, so she whapped him a third time. When that didn't make him leave, Oja went off to find another food bowl.
Who do you think is the alpha or is there one? I am just curious. It won't change anything around here, I would just like to know.
