Cats donâ€™t have packs, being downright neurotic about their individuality. Except for lions of course, and no oneâ€™s about to insult a lion for always hanging out with the pride. However, I thought it might be useful to remind my three cats that I am the alpha cat, i.e. the boss in our household. I am sure the mere idea was hilarious to them, but they had to remain cool and ironic throughout the experiment. Coolness is very important to cats.
