It is a fallacy to think a Cat person is a "push over" - a quiet, vulnerable, intimidated, creature of a weak species. One slice of the nose off the Dog person's face will disprove this theory. Hence the danger of cornering a cat as further evidence of the Cat person's need to always have an exit path.In fact, the most content cat is one that is placed in the most flexible position (e.g. on a couch ledge, or under a bed) for viewing any noise or movement that would alert them for an easy exit to safety. Therefore the opposite of this environment is ...... backed into a corner.
Cat in the corner is dog meat.
