Something I didn't see in that article Hazel was a reference to the fights between dogs, and between cats.

When dogs get into a fight they have 3 options, they are fight, flight, or submit. With cats they only have 2 options and they are, fight or flight. The reasons for this, I understand, are because dogs are a more sociable animal, being a pack animal. Cats are more independent and able to live on their own. This is another reason why we go to such lengths when introducing a new cat in a house that already has animals. Trying to rectify after a fight can be very difficult, and sometimes almost impossible.

So an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
