Cat & Dog fighting over who welcomes me home
This is dumb. A new problem has arisen for me and I don't know how to deal with it.
When I come home, I would find all three furkids by the door. Jack sits a distance away so he's okay. However, Miu and Rocky the dog are usually right at the door. Lately, Rocky has been beating up on Miu when I come home. My mother says it seems he's fighting over the right to 'welcome' me home. He turns into a green eyed monster and literally shows Miu his teeth as he barks ferociously at her.
I don't think Miu understands what he wants and usually after I actually get in the door, he's too concentrated in welcoming me. After a bit, he'll be 'normal' again. He'll look at Miu and wag his tail, all friendly again. Meanwhile, she remembers his Mr. Hyde act from before so she either hisses, start to back away with back fur standing up or run away. She seems fine though. Although cautious, her other behavior and demeanor seem unaffected by him.
And at other times, when I'm just home. They appear to co-exist in peace. For example, Rocky will sit on my bed with me, Miu will jump on too and walk by him, even brushing his body. He seems unaffected and may even reach over to give her a friendly sniff.
The only other time this happens is right before mealtime. Rocky gets all bossy again. Miu goes hunger-crazy and does her mad dashes around the house. Rocky gets upset and chases her around. Occasionally, he'll do the Mr. Hyde routine too but not as bad as when I come home.
I don't know what I should do or from what angle I should deal with this. Any ideas?
