MowMow can do no wrong. It's a fact. He's my first kitty ever, my angel, and my little soul mate. Is he a jerk sometimes? You bet! He's my little jerk though and if someone doesn't like him, they can put me on ignore and not read about him.
It's not every day all day that it's like that. A few times a week for a short period of time(5 minutes tops) MowMow gets some hair to chase Book. Book knows exactly where to run to be safe and that's what he does. He's not running around "looking for a place to hide" he's running straight (usually) to a spot where he can be protected on 3 sides and defend himself. He's not a complete dolt.
MowMow has NEVER hurt him, he's never been bloodied or hurt. MowMow keeps his claws sheathed and has never bitten Book, the only one who has ever come out of it scathed is MowMow with scratches on his nose from Book lashing out at him (which I agree he deserves). If Book would NOT run and just turn and face MowMow he would back right down.
Despite what it sounds like, I watch them closely and if I felt that someone was being HURT I would step in immediately, but that's never happened. The moment MowMow gets bored and wanders off Book pops out of his hiding place (not creeping or scared) and goes about his business with his tail up and never acts afraid.
Book spends 99.9% of his time chilling wherever he wants with no problem whatsoever. They lay next to each other, he grooms MOwMow (and Neelix), and he sleeps next to me at night WITH MowMow..every night all night. They share beds, pillows, and litterboxes with no issues.
He is just as much of a jerk with MowMow as the other way around. Each meal (3x per day) he's a putz and runs around punching MowMow in the face while I dish up the food. He runs in, hits him and then runs away....then comes back and hits him and runs away. I don't step in then either.
Both MOwMow chasing him and Book punching MowMOw can be solved by either one sticking up for themselves. If Book stood up to MowMow and let him have it (he actually outweighs MowMow and is pure muscle compared to MowMow being underweight and having little muscle tone, it's not like he's overpowered) then he'd back right down, Mow is a giant wussy. If MowMow hit Book back during mealtimes instead of just crying, Book would stop punching him.
He's not "scared" of MowMow, he doesn't hide or cower. He wanders around of his own free will and doesn't creep around scared or anything. He moves around the apartment with his head and tail and ears up all the time.
*Oh, and the picture of Book above is not because of MowMOw, that's when I had that dog I wanted to adopt. Book was watching the dog, not MowMow
