We hope that Niki grows from a hoarder to a herder.
For Niki, a cat is not a cat.
The 12-week-old Border collie pup knows that Trick the Cat will play, but he has claws and teeth, and she'd better approach him butt-end first.
Leslie the Cat has claws and doesn't want to play. Niki may give her a chase, but she keeps her distance.
Louie the Indoor Cat and Niki have come to an understanding: they'll ignore each other.
Dewey Kitty made the mistake of running when he first met Niki, and now Niki wants to give chase.
Until last night.

Apparently she'd cornered Dewey Kitty and he fought back.
The telltale sign was the claw stuck in her forehead.
This morning, she was keeping her distance and approaching Dewey Kitty butt-end first.
