The animal situation in our home can be a bit mental at times. Our cat Cosmo and Jack’s dog Gracie chase each other around the house–or more accurately Gracie taunts Cosmo and he takes chase. They run up and down the stairs after each other like wild hooligans–which always ends with Gracie backed in a corner and Cosmo making her beg for mercy. It’s ridiculous.
Gracie eggs Cosmo on–she hides behind a door and waits for him to pass by. She then springs out with a ‘tada!’ in a child-like game and the chase begins. Cosmo has no problem taking swipes at her.

She won’t leave the cat alone!
