Albert grew up around a large family with a dog...I imagine he spent a good bit of time with the dog and the dog looked out for him. When Albert has something he doesn't want anyone else to have in his mouth (usually a sock but sometimes a toy) he will growl like a dog. It is the oddest thing. When I or another cat approaches him while he has a toy or sock in his mouth he will trot off and growl . :lol:

it is not uncommon for a cat to growl at another especially when they have something in their mouth that they prize. I have noticed that when I have brought in a new kitten into the fold, that they will growl at other cats at feeding time. But after they realize that there is plenty to eat and enough to go around for every one, they let up on their aggressiveness. Tiger was that way when I first brought her home, two years ago. In fact she would keep the others at bay while she ate. Apparently, whoever had her did not feed the litter much.

One year I gave my cat a catnip mouse for x-mas and all she did for the next 3 days was growl at all my other pets! I don't think she even slept she was so vigilant. But the mouse vanished after those 3 days. I think my ferret took off with it and hid it. My poor cat cried and searched for that stupid toy like it was a lost kitten the whole day. :lol:

Blitz Bug used to growl at the others at feeding time just as Tiger used to do. I still have two kittens who growls at the other cats, Snow Plough and Moon Shadow make quite a pair especially at feeding time. Both are about the same age, (appx 4-5 months) and both are very aggressive towards their food. Snow Plough is totally white and Moon Shadow is all black. They often wrestle each other during play, and both are extremely affectionate, especially Moon Shadow -as both of them are lap kitties. :D
