The Stair Master

You may have seen the You Shall Not Pass, Dog video making the rounds on Facebook and Twitter. I watched it, and was laughing and nodding in agreement — the power that cats have over dogs.

This recurring theme is definitely true in my house — everything from Barnie and Quincy owning the dog beds to the Invisi-Cat Shield saga. And now, cat control over the stairs.

Stairway to Trouble

One of Quincy’s favorite things is to exercise his control over the dogs. In this scene, he realized that he was in prime position to block Argos from coming down the stairs when I called him to go out for a walk.

Here is how it unfolded.

This impasse wasn’t going to be over anytime soon. I had to rescue Argos. Quincy knew the game was over as I made my way up the stairs.
