Her relationship with the dogs wasn't always friendly. When she first met them, they were cheerfully curious and wanted to sniff her. She immediately dialed the aggression up to 11 and ripped their noses to shreds when they came over to see her. In about 15 seconds, she set the tone for the rest of their relationship. They didn't bother her at all after that and she started to relax. After a time, they became friends, but she was always in control of the situation and they knew it.
Our new Maximum Leader, Maddi, is sweetness personified. All she wants to do is purr, head bump, roll around, get her tummy rubbed and have adventures in the yard. She almost never uses her claws. Because of that, her Catican Guards, particularly the little ones, are learning Cat Protocol very slowly. In fact, I'm having to be her claws by punishing them for getting too close and bugging her too much. We're getting there, but it's taking a lot longer than it would if Maddi had a little more cattitude.
